Hi, I have a bridemaid question. My fiance is having 1 best man and i have already got 1 bridesmaid. Ive got 3 or 4 other really close lifelong friends and would love them to be part of the wedding but not wanting the numbers to look reslly unbalanced. Can anyone think of other ways they could be inluded in the wedding? I was thinking of asking them to do a reading each but is 3 readings a bit too many? Any other ideas? Thanks
It doesn't matter these days if you have equal numbers of bridesmaids to groomsmen, I've seen so many weddings where the bridesmaids have outnumbered the groomsmen, sometimes by more than double. Only once have I seen it they other way round. We've got one best man and two bridesmaids, just do what makes you happy and don't worry about what looks right or wrong. If it's right for you, the that's all that matters.
Hi I agree with Sharon it is really up to you :)
Its totally up to you but a reading is nice too. I think 3 readings is pretty standard. I have been to plenty that have 3. They could also be your witnesses? x
My husband had 2 best men and 1 usher I had 11 bridesmaids lol x
Sounds great. Can any sing? Do a nice song that means sonething to you and your H2b
My fiancé is having 2 best men. I’m having 3 adult bridesmaids and 4 flower girls. Did imbalance, have your dream day!
My h2b is having 1 best man and I am having 3 bridesmaids I don't see the issue. Does it really matter? I hve never heard of them been equal numbers 🙈
I would just have them as your bridesmaids. Its usual for the bride to have a few!
I'm having 2 bridesmaids 1 flower girl and he's having 1 best man.... we have 5 ushers cos between us we have 5 sons and 2 daughter's
I had 6 bridesmaids and he had 1 best man ... doesn't matter..
Depending on where your getting married there may be rules in the number of readings. We are only allowed 2.
In regards to bridesmaids. Have as many as you want. I have 5. My fiancé has 1 best man and 2 ushers
We get married 3 weeks on Saturday and I have 5 bridesmaid and my hubby to be only has his best man. He didn’t want ushers but I wanted all the girls as bridesmaids so it’s completely your choice
My partner is having four best men and I’m having two bridesmaids. I don’t think it matters how many just that they mean a lot to you x
I had 5 bridesmaids and there was only 1 best man xxx
Unless the numbers really bother you, it's not a huge issue to be unbalanced. My (now) husband had just a best man and I had 4 bridesmaids. Everything still flowed wonderfully and all looked fine.
I had 9 bridesmaids (6 kids 3 adults) and we only had a best man. No ushers etc x
Don't worry about odd numbers , I had 5 bridesmaids .... & 1 other friend to be a witness & 1 to do a reading ....
I thought a wedding was about marrying the one you love and sharing that day with those closest to you, not about how it looks.. if it's unbalanced . Really? Have those that important to you, irrelevant if they 'balance'.
Im having 8 bridesmaids,plus 2 flower girls,a ring bearer, 2 page boys, 2 best men and 2 ushers. We have just included the people we wanted to include xx
We are having moh. 3adult bridesmaids &3 young 1s... 1 best man.. ringbearer. & both mothers are walking down isle with me too.. (to control the kids.. lol..)
It's your wedding have as many bridesmaids as you wish, make one a maid of honour, and have fun, and 3 readings may be a bit much, although I have seen up to 6 readings. but they were quite religious.
The groom usualy has 1 best man anyway it dosnt realy matter how many bridesmaids you have maybe your hubby to be can have an usher a best man and a man to do a reading then you can have your friends as bridesmaids
I'm having 6 bridesmaids and my fiancé is having 1 best man and 2 ushers, my mum is also walking me down the isle so a lot more women than men, it's your day you get to choose how you want it to be 😊
Is one of them really confident and outgoing? Maybe one person can take on a role of master of ceremonies and introduce you into the room at the reception and announce the speeches? Then the other two can do readings in the ceremony?
I’m having 2 bridesmaid 5 flower girls and my other half has one best man and 3/4 usher he hasn’t fully decided.... it’s up to you it will be fine and will not look unbalanced at all xx
My partner considered use
Hers as part of my groomsmen so we had 5 vs 4 so she added a bridesmaid, witnesses are a good option to, 3 readings could be a bit much but depends how long they are going to be
We're having 4 readings - 2 religious and 2 contemporary
