I was totally up for the idea of having odd number of groomsmen and bridesmaids, but it just worked out that we had an even number. Though lately, I've noticed and been to a wedding where there were an odd number bridal party and it looked great as well.
Hopefully! We were 10 and 12 and now we're 10 and 10. But you just never know what could happen. This was a HUGE OCD moment for me but now I'm over it. If it falls to uneven I won't mind (that much lol)
We'll be having two of each, but having an even number really wasn't a priority, it just happened. The last wedding I went to had an uneven number because they decided to just go with siblings to keep things simple (so it was the bride's sister and the groom's two brothers), and it looked perfectly fine to me.
I was going with an even number (that' s what I prefer for the wedding pictures). My fiancé has 2 groomsmen (his brother and his best friend). I want To ask my best and longest friend from Mtl (I'm from there) To be my bridesmaid. My MOH would be my best friend from here (NB). The only thing is that I have a sister which I am not really close to but I don't want To exclude her from the wedding. I will probably ask her to be my bridesmaid. Her daughters will be my flower girls so she could walk down the aisle with them. I think this is what I'm going to do because I don't want to cut anyone I love and I don't want to add someone just because.
I hace 4 bridesmaids and he has 3 groomsmen. I wanted to have even and keep it small to 2 or 3, but i couldn't imagibe my day without the 4th . It doesnt matter if the side are even or not, as long as you have who you feel are the most important people standing with you, that's all that matters.

Same boat! When I originally asked FH who he might want as groomsmen he listed around 10-12 people. I told him I was having 5 on my side max so he whittled it down. Now we're even at 5 each.
