I just have a MOH and he has 3GM and his BM, so 1 on my side and 4 guys. How can we make it look less awkward for pictures, head table and ceremony etc.

    Do you have any flower girls? You can use them to offset things, also family or close friends you may want in the pictures as well. Maybe as far as the head table goes instead of seating all the guys on his side you can mix and match on each side?

    What about nixing a head table? Why not have a small table with just you and your H, the MOH and BM, and maybe your parents? The rest of the groomsmen can just be interspersed at the guest tables.

    2 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen. I stopped caring about that a while ago. That's what your bridal party ended up as, so that's what will be in pictures, unless you want to add bridesmaids to even things out

    You don't have to have a head table per say, just have a sweet heart table for just you and your husband.. and if you want pictures to look more "even" but one of the GM on your side.. just put yourselves in the middle

    I would get rid of the head table. Don't worry about trying to arrange pictures - that's why your photographer knows whats best! I was in a wedding with 2 BMs and 6 GM and the pictures turn out beautifully. They'll arrange you well and you will still be the star of the picture!

    That is a toughie...I had 2 bridesmaids and my hubby had 4 groomsmen and we made it work. Ultimately it shouldn't matter the unevenness because these people mean the most and their support is more valuable than any photo.

    If you don't have any other ladies you would want to ask to be part of your day then I would do a sweetheart table at the reception. As far as pics and ceremony there isn't much you can do :/

    I agree with the other ladies. I would do a sweetheart table and have each person walk alone instead of a bm and a gm together.

    Don't worry about it. I would suggest getting rid of the head table and the pictures will work themselves out. As for the ceremony you can always have your MOH walk in by herself and walk out with the BM and the other GMs will just follow (same would go for intros).

    I have 4 BM and he has 6 GM. I'm not concerned about an uneven number, but people kept asking me who my other two BM were going to be. I've found that other people's opinions are mattering to me less and less these days... We're doing a sweetheart table and then having the rest of the wedding party at tables with other guests. Everyone is going to walk down the aisle by themselves on the way in and then we'll probably just double up with a couple of the girls on the way out.

    I have an uneven wedding party as well. We are doing a sweetheart table with two connecting small tables, bridal party with their dates will sit at it. Or you can do a large round head table and it wont matter that it's uneven. for walking I would do the MOH and BM walking and then the three GM behind them (if room). OR if you have parents or grandparents that do not have a "partner" they could walk them too.

    4 girls on my side, 3 guys (including then 14 yr old son as BM). 1 flower girl (if her parents agree, LOL). Have a half dozen or so mid teen to late 20's nephews who I will ask for usher type help without the tuxes, just matching dress shirts, ties and pants etc.
