What happens if you and your future spouse decide that you don’t want an even number of bridesmaids and groomsmen, though? How will you arrange their entrance and their places at the altar?

We have gathered some tips to help you with this – so read on and find out more.

  • You don’t have to worry too much about this. Most brides and grooms today choose to have an uneven wedding party – and that’s perfectly fine, as long as it makes sense to you.
  • When your bridesmaids and groomsmen walk down the aisle to “announce” your coming, you can ask them to walk in pairs and allow the last group to be formed out of three people (a groomsman and two bridesmaids, for example).
  • Also, you can ask all the groomsmen to enter one after the other, followed by the bridesmaids – or you can ask them to enter alternatively (one bridesmaid, followed by one groomsman, and so on).
  • As for how your wedding party will be arranged at the altar, it is entirely up to you. Mix them, place all the ladies on one side and all the gentlemen on the other or, if you prefer this, have them seated on nice-looking ottomans or chairs. Regardless of what you choose, they will look wonderful!
