I really want to gave 6 bridesmaids and my fiance only has 3 groomsmen. Is this number way too off? I'm debating that if we should just do a MOH and best man. I cant think of how any photos would look.
Pick the people you want in the wedding party, it doesn’t have to be even. This is meant to honor the people in your life so it really doesn’t matter how many are on each side. Photographers will be able to arrange the wedding party for your photos so everything is balanced.
Don’t worry about the aesthetics. It’ll look fine. I’ve got 3 on my side and 5 on my FH’s side and I know that no one will be paying attention to how the sides look and your photographer will make sure your pictures are amazing and well balanced.
I agree with what's been said. It's great to be able to stand with those who support you. I understand the preference for things to be even but in the end it's up to you as to what is most important to you.
I agree with everyone here, too. I know we all want beautiful, perfect photos, but really no one will be looking at the wedding party at the event or in the pictures. People will be more focused on the couple getting married! The wedding party is to have your closest people there with you, and if that means it's uneven, that's totally fine.

I agree! Our wedding parties are a bit of (okay only by 1 person) but these are all people who we love and want by our side it kind of worked out for the ceremony though because my fiancé’s parents are separated and we are going to have his best man/brother walk his mom down the aisle which evens up the rest. I’ve been at a wedding where they did 2 bridesmaids to 1 groomsmen and I thought it still looked nice!
I think it’ll look fine! Regarding the photos being “even”, what I think is pretty funny is that my husband and I had the same number of bridesmaids/groomsmen (4 each) but our photos don’t actually look even. Of course it’s an even number, but since most men are bigger than women, they take up more of the frame anyway 😂 Of course honestly having even photos does not matter at all, in my opinion. But even if that IS what you’re considering, having more bridesmaids than groomsmen will actually probably make it look MORE symmetrical
I had the same concerns. He wanted 11 (yes 11) groomsmen, and I only had 6 on my side. I could come up with 11 but those extra 5 people would just be space fillers. He compromised and brought his down to 6 because I also want it to look balanced. At the end of the day what really matters is choosing the people who are closest to you.
