Uneven Bridal Party?

Hi guys! Has anyone planned/been to a wedding with an uneven amount of groomsmen and bridesmaids? He is only having 2, and I'd like to have more. I think all my girls will walk down alone, but any thoughts on placement at the ceremony? I'm thinking 5 girls. Any other ideas?

    I've been to more weddings with uneven bridal parties than even. I'm not sure what you mean by placement at the ceremony? Typically they would just stand next to you, just the same as if the numbers were even.

    Thank you! Good to know! I just didn't know if anyone had seen anything creative instead of having 5 on my side and 2 on his, like alternating or all standing together, etc.

    It's more common than you think, and you don't have to make any special adjustments for their ceremony spot.

    I saw some cute ideas of all the party surrounding the couple instead of formally on one side. I like that, too! Thank you for your advice!

    I have three and he has two. I think it will be fine! I was concerned at first but not as worried now.

    I was in a wedding in 2071 with 2 more BM than GM. Our wedding has 1 more GM than BM! I'm not sure what you mean on placement? Ours will just be normal, girls on my side and men on his.

    Yeah, that might be what we do. I've just seen some cute placement of the party spread out around the couple instead of formally "his side" and "her side."

    Our bridal party is uneven! I have 8 girls, and he has 6 guys!

    It’s not uncommon for the sides to be uneven. My FH has six groomsmen and I have four people on my side (my man of honor and three bridesmaids).

    All of our wedding party are all just walking down alone because it is uneven.
