Planning a wedding can very often feel like a long and arduous process of decision-making, changing minds, bending traditions and falling asleep on a mountain of envelopes and stamps. Of all the decisions you will have to take as a couple-to-be-married, your bridesmaids and groomsmen are surely among the most important ones.
Is it ok to have a mismatched number of bridesmaids and groomsmen, though? Here are some considerations:
- Yes, it is completely fine to have a mismatched wedding party. In fact, it is much more personal and meaningful to have a different number of bridesmaids and groomsmen, rather than simply “add” people to the list so that everything is even. These are some of your most important people in the world! Don’t muddy the waters trying to fill in the gaps.
- If you are worried about how this will look in pictures, think of it this way: it will definitely look unique! Moreover, a good photographer will know how to choose poses and styles that either emphasize the originality of your bridal party or “hide” away its unevenness. Regardless of what you choose, your wedding party will still look amazing in the photos!
- As for the wedding ceremony, things can be very easily managed by simply having a bridesmaid or a groomsman be accompanied down the altar by two wedding party members from the other side. Also, you might want to alternate the bridesmaids and the groomsmen when they walk down the aisle, so that the uneven numbers are not as noticeable.
