Can you have a mismatched number of bridesmaids and groomsmen?

Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are more than important to you. They are your best friends, your closest relatives and the people whom you have chosen to be there for you as you walk down the aisle, spell out the big “I Do” and party along with everyone else.

Naturally, you want everything about your bridesmaids and groomsmen to be perfect. Does that include an even number on each side, though? Can you have a mismatched number of bridesmaids and groomsmen? We have some tips you might want to keep in mind – so read on and find out more.

Yes, you can definitely have a mismatched number of bridesmaids and groomsmen. And the reason you can do this is very simple, actually: you don’t have to feel obliged to add an “extra” to your side of the wedding party just because your future spouse has done it.

In fact, having a mismatched number of bridesmaids and groomsmen should pose no problem whatsoever. If you are worried that doing this will look odd in the pictures, think again: this is a wonderful opportunity to pull off some really creative and fun photos with your wedding party!

Furthermore, walking down the aisle shouldn’t be an issue either. Simply match one or two of the bridesmaids with a groomsman on each side (or the other way around) and everything will be just fine.

Last, but definitely not least, you don’t have to worry about the way this will look during the ceremony either. Simply add chairs at the altar so that the wedding party can sit or arrange them in a way that makes it less obvious they are not equal (of course, if this is something that you want – if not, nobody will mind that you have 5 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen standing at the altar with you and your future spouse).
