Wedding Party

Growing wedding party,,,

I have 2 bridesmaids and FI was orginally going to have 3 groomsmen. So last night he mentioned to me that he might want to add his cousin and a friend that's he's grown close to over the past couple of months. I really want him to have everyone that's special to him stand up with him, but I don't have any other girls I would feel comfortable asking. I was fine with the asymmetry when it was 3 & 2, but is 5 & 2 too much? Also, is there any sort of etiquette when adding people like this? We already asked our original WP a few months ago and I don't want it to seem like his cousin & friend weren't important enough to ask before...maybe I am over analyzing this???

    There is nothing wrong with having an uneven WP...but I do feel like there is a certain time you need to draw the line and not add anyone else, just like with the guest list.  I personally wouldn't add anyone after 5 months, but that is just me.

    Don't worry about it.  5/2 is fine.  I once attended a wedding that was 6/1.  The groom wanted EVERYONE to be his GM and the bride only wanted a MOH.  It was still perfect.

    I don't think anyone is going to get offended to be asked after the original WP were chosen.  I'm sure the friend feels that the friendship has grown closer, and would be honored to stand up with him.Uneven wedding parties are fine.  No one will notice.  If you're worried about the walk, just have the GMs stand up front w/ the groom and have the BMs walk down the aisle themselves.And, also know that if you have any men in your life that you are close to, they can stand up on your side.  Your WP doesn't have to be just girls.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!

    If 3/2 is fine, why wouldn't 5/2 be? The ladies get two escorts apiece, and one guy walks solo. Not a big deal!

    I don't think 5&2 is too uneven. You won't be counting heads in your wedding photos, and people wont' be counting heads during the ceremony--you will all be too focused on the fact that you are GETTING MARRIED!
