Uneven wedding party!?

I was wondering if anyone had an uneven wedding party. More specifically, 3 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen. I was wondering how it worked out and if I would be able to see some photos. Having a dilemma and looking for some opinions and experiences. Thank you in advance!

    She's been good as far as "I'm here for you" and stuff. She's only actually come over once out of 3 or 4 times she's said she was going to the last little while though so I'm kind of just getting frustrated tbh

    So far so good! He’s actually been really good about planning stuff like my bachelorette party but we will see as the time gets closer! How has your one friend been doing as a bridesmaid? Hopefully all is well with you!

    I told him that i want him to be part of our big day but if he flakes out on stuff or makes it about him, I’m going to ask him to just be a guest. He’s agreed so we will just have to wait and see!

    I’m in the same boat as you! You love them as a friend but they are just not reliable enough!

    We've got an uneven bridal party. I've got 4 bridesmaids and a brosmaid, and 4 groomsman. We're just having my brosmaid and a groomsman escort one bridesmaid, so it should pair up properly.

    I definitely don't want to force it for sure. Just debating on telling one of my friends that she can't stay on as a bridesmaid 🙈

    Yeah I technically have 4 right now (he also has 4) but one's been a really crappy friend. I love her, really, but I'm not sure I can rely on her so I'm sort of on the fence about keeping her or not 🙈

    Im having the same! i was gonna have 4 gals with me until one of mine got majorly flaky, got into a bad relationship (when i say bad, i mean BAD AF!) and kept lying to me that she was no longer with him and whatnot...not being one to deal with drama & crap, i kicked her out of the bridal party.

    We had odd numbers: 2 girls on my side and 3 guys on his. It worked out really well and the photos are lovely. No one actually sits there and says "well your numbers aren't even!" when looking at photos. If you don't feel that there is someone close enough and important enough to have up there then don't force it just to have even numbers.

    We also have my 12 yrold and his 8year boys as juniors/ringbearer as well as my 9year old girl and his 8 year old girl as flower girls/juniors. He has alot of people he could put in his wedding party but I'm lacking on the friends and my sister in laws are very busy and we just aren't that close. The whole issue arrose when my cousin who was suppose to be my MOH was asked to be MOH for her friend on the exact same day!!!

    I just have to say - I'm glad I'm not the only one. I am currently struggling through the same thing. My Finance wants 3 Groomsmen and I only have 2 bridemaids. I was wondering the same thing!

    I had a constantly evolving wedding party! I had three maids and two jr maids, but my DH's brothers and cousins were basically always swapping in and out as the guys tried to figure out if they could come or not! We had two celebrations (because of being from different countries) so for one we had 5 girls and 3 guys, for the second we had 5 girls and 6 guys (plus a ring bearer, so 6.5 guys, lol!) It worked out just great for us, our photographer made everything look balanced and we were just so glad our nearest and dearest could all be with us

    Thank you so much everyone! I'm liking the sound of odd numbers for photos (that was one of my biggest worries) but we're having a wedding party dance so I'd have to figure that out too 🤔 - damn on me for having no friends 😂

    I've seen it done tons of times and it always looks fine. Our wedding party will most-likely be uneven lol. I figure it's better to have the people you want up there as opposed to having someone up there just as filler (to make the numbers even).

    We have 4 bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen. The way our venue is set up is stairs leading up to a overhead area where bride, groom and officiant stand. So we will have MOH, Me, My Fiance, Best man and officiant in the middle of course then down the stairs will be groomsmen, bridesmaid, groomsman, bridesmaid, groomsmen, bridesmaid, groomsmen. We aren't having the wedding party dance so we don't have to worry about pairing up. Odd numbers always work out perfectly from what I've seen!

    I think you'll be okay with just one person off. People don't think about it too much. I have 4 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen.... So my photos are going to be a feat for sure... I'm trying not to think about it too much or I may have a nervous breakdown Smiley xd

    You can have it go guy/girl alternating, with guys on either end... I'm sure your photographer will have suggestions on how to make it look nice.

    My sister-in-law had 4 girls and 8 guys standing in her wedding. There were 5 people on her side and 7 people on the groom's, and the sexes were mixed so she had her 3 brother's standing on her side in addition to 2 of her friends, and her groom had 5 men and his two sisters on his. I think it worked out quite nicely.

    For your situation, you could either have two guys walk down the aisle with a girl if you are doing something like that, or you could also have them come in all individually.

    In terms of pictures, I think it works out nicely with an odd number because you can get more variety in the photos, with having people interspersed. It can definitely work! Have you looked through some of the weddings here on Weddingwire. I found I got some of my ideas for my bridal party just sifting through some of the couples photos.

    We have four bridesmaids and three groomsmen (the bestman is actually his sister). At the start of the ceremony we are having the groom's side already up at the alter. So, just the bridesmaids and myself will walk down the aisle. for the processional, we will do the MOH and BestWoman walking together, Bridesmaid/Groomman, Bridesmaid/Groomsman, Bridesmaid/Junior Usher, who is the Bridesmaid's 13 year old son.

    That's our plan.
