I’ve already choosen my moh and bridesmaid and the h2b is currently deciding on his groomsmen. I have 3 bridesmaids(including moh) and he wants to make his groomsmen to 4. I really don’t want an uneven number but I don’t want to pick another bridesmaid. Do I compromise and just allow the uneven number or stand my ground? I’m aware it’s both our days.

Think about how you would feel if he told you that you could only have 2 bridesmaids total. Does the uneven number really matter that much? Plenty of poeple have an uneven number x

Hi, I am having 4 including my MOH and my H2B is having around 6-7 does not bother me at all, I think you'll have bigger things to worry about other than odd numbers 😊 X

I would let your H2B have who he wants. It really doesn't matter if the numbers are even or not. I'm having 7 bridesmaids and H2B is having a best man, two ushers and two 'groomsmaids'. I certainly wouldn't choose another bridesmaid just for the sake of numbers though. At the end of the day you are going to look back at your day and who made it special with you. You're not going to look back and think 'oh my numbers didn't match!'.

You should allow your H2B to have as many groomsmen as he wants! Uneven numbers really do not matter.

If your thinking about pairing up groomsmen & bridesmaids on the way out of the ceremony why not include his mother at this point? Not necessarily as a bridesmaid, but it would even out your numbers - he'd appreciate the compromise, and she'd probably appreciate the gesture too.
