    When fiance and I got engaged a year and 2 months ago everybody was on board with our destination wedding in Jamaica that was going to be included in our bridal party. We each had 6 groomsmen/bridesmaids. Now 3 of the groomsmen are backing out but I still have ALL 6 of my bridesmaids... Is this okay? I think it will look a tad bit funny with 6 girls up front and only 3 guys..


    What do I do?!? HELP!!!


    I thought about telling the girls that a lot of the guys have decided not to come and we are only going to have our MOH and BM but I feel as though that is so rude.. opinions please...

      We have 3 BMs, 1 groomsman and a groomsperson..our numbers are completely off as well..its up to you what you want to do!!


      we're gonna have the girl who is a groomsperson still stand on the grooms side.

        I am having the same problem and for now we are only one person off so I am just going to let it go.


        Have you thought about including some other family/friends that are going in the wedding party. While they might not be exactly who you had in mind, if you are that worried about it being equal you can always add, rather than subtracting. I think your bridesmaids will be a little hurt if you decide not to include them at this stage.

          You can 2 maids for each gromsmen, have all the groomsmen stand at the alter and have the maids walk by themselves.


          Have the bridal party sit down instead of stand up so the pictures aren't so uneven. 


          I don't think you un invite anyone, maybe there is someone else coming to you wedding that can ask stand as a groomsmen such as bothers, cousins, friends.

            Honestly, I don't think it's a problem at all!  Unless you really feel strongly about it.  I say the more the merrier!  I personally wouldn't care if mine and FI's numbers were off at all!  A destination wedding is already un-traditional.
