What's a bride to do when she wants more (or less) bridesmaids than her groom wants groomsmen? Well, for one, stop freaking out and start looking at the positives. Not only will you have all the girls (or boys) you adore by your side on your big day, but you also won't feel pressured into adding or subtracting people simply to ensure your numbers match. For brides-to-be with an uneven wedding party, here's how to strike the perfect balance seamlessly.
Go solo or double up If the walking in and out of the ceremony part has you stressed out, relax; you've got a couple of cute options. You can either let your attendants strut their stuff solo or have each groomsmen walk with two bridesmaids (or vice versa if there are more groomsmen), Of course, you can adjust how many people in your wedding party need to double up based on your particular numbers. Plan on having your pooch walk down the aisle? You could always match up the dog lover in the bigger group with your pup.
Get creative with spacing Trick the camera and your guests into thinking your numbers are actually even by using space to your advantage. During the ceremony, have the side with less people spread out, making extra space in between each person, while the side with more attendants stands closer together. This will create the look of uniformity for the camera and viewers. This is more of a European tradition but you can also opt to have your attendants seated in the front rows instead of standing up at your side
Mix and match Why have all the guys stand on his side and the girls on yours? Make things symmetrical, and unique at that, by mixing the bridesmaids and groomsmen up on both sides.
Have them all stand on one side This idea definitely works best for wedding parties where there's a very noticeable difference between the number of bridesmaids versus the number of groomsmen, Have the wedding party stand as a group on one side and stagger them.
It adds variety to photos
Having an uneven number of attendants is great for your photos! If you have ever studied photography you may have heard of the rule of threes. This rule states that an uneven number of subjects in a photo is more aesthetically pleasing and interesting. Which means your photos will be awesome and artsy!
