Your wedding is yours and nobody should tell you whether or not you can have a certain number of groomsmen and bridesmaids. After all, you want your closest friends and relatives to be part of your wedding party – and numbers shouldn’t be a criterion of selection in any way.
How to arrange an uneven wedding party, though? How to make sure that, even if you don’t have the same number of groomsmen and bridesmaids, they all look really great together? We have gathered some tips to help you with this – so read on and find out more.
• When your wedding party walks down the aisle, you have two options. You can either send all the groomsmen in at once (followed by all the bridesmaids), or you can alternate one groomsman with one bridesmaid until they all reach the altar.
• If you prefer a more traditional approach, you can also send the bridesmaids and groomsmen in pairs and have one or two last groups made out of three people (one bridesmaid and two groomsmen, for example). Regardless of what you choose, make sure to use the same rules for the recessional too.
• As for the moment your wedding party members take their places at the altar, you can either alternate one groomsman and one bridesmaid or you can have them all seated on nice chairs or ottomans near the altar (which will make it less “visible” that their numbers are uneven).
• Last, but not least, make sure to talk to your photographer about this. A great photographer will know how to arrange an uneven wedding party for the photos, but you might want to discuss things first and make it clear how “formal” or “informal” you want these pictures to look.
