This seems to be a topic that comes up all the time! How many people do you have on each side of your wedding party? Did you care about having even sides or just place your close friends without really focusing on this?

Does your wedding party have an equal amount of people on each side?

    Yes, but it just worked out that way! We definitely would have been comfortable with uneven sides! We have 5 each.

    We originally had 6 and 6, but a GM dropped out a month before our wedding. We had one of the guys (my brother!) walk down the aisle and into the reception with two girls and it was perfectly fine!

    It's cool how you all automatically ended up with even sides!

    No, our one GM had to pull out unexpectedly and can no longer attend the wedding. We are fine with having it be different numbers, we asked people who we wanted to stand up with us, not so we could have symmetry.

    Matching sides was nowhere near a concern for us. We just want our closest people by us! Between the uneven numbers, guys and girls being on both sides, 2 dresses not matching, and one girl being in a suit, our wedding party is probably going to look like a disaster...but we're going to be able to look back at our wedding all the happier for it.

    No. I had a junior bridesmaid and we didn't have any boys to ask that were in that age range.

    One of his GM was pretty flaky and we would have been fine with uneven sides if he dropped out. But, we were so happy that he didn't!

    Hi AJ! So happy to hear it Smiley heart

    I completely agree, it's not about the numbers... it's about the people closest to you Smiley smile

    I am sure it will be perfect, don't stress it! Yes, you will be all the happier during and looking back when you see it was the people who mattered most! Smiley heart Thanks for sharing.

    I also put the trio last to come in so that it makes a statement!

    We didn't even have sides as such. The two of us had two attendants total, who were my two children. If I'd had three children, the sides would have been uneven rather than leaving someone out.
