Have you wondered if you are allowed to have a mismatched bridal party number?
Your bridal party is consisted of your best friends and closest relatives – the people you have chosen to walk down the aisle with you, to be there as you plan (and enjoy) your Big Day and the people with whom you will build some pretty amazing memories too.
Have you wondered if you are allowed to have a mismatched bridal party number? If so, here are some of the answers to remember:
Yes, you are definitely allowed to have as many bridesmaids and as many groomsmen as you feel it’s right. The reason behind this is simple: it would be a lot worse to add someone to the wedding party just because you need an even number. If you want 3 bridesmaids and he wants 5 groomsmen, so be it! The important thing is that you are surrounded by the people you genuinely want there!
If you feel that walking down the aisle will feel awkward with a mismatched wedding party, think again. There are a lot of ways to “fix” this from a visual point of view: asking the bridesmaids and groomsmen to enter one after the other, asking a bridesmaid to be escorted by two groomsmen, asking them to sit down once they reach the altar, and so on.
Also, the pictures will look quite creative too. A good photographer will know how to take advantage of the mismatched bridal party, so that he/she creates something completely unique. And that’s precisely what you want of your wedding day, right?
