    Oh my god, please lurk. All of these questions are answered multiple times in other posts. But to save you the trip, no, none of these is a big deal, pretty much every possible combination you've mentioned is fine.

    2 MOH and an uneven WP = the wedding police will bust your wedding up.  Or it will go off without a hitch and be totally fine.  Which one do you think is true?

    And yes, this is discussed in the FAQ and on the top of the page ("Are uneven sides okay? (yes!)"

    ETA: That was snarky, I apologize.  But uneven sides and 2 MOH are done all the time.  You've probably been to a wedding that had uneven sides and didn't even notice.  You'll be fine.

    You can have more than one MOH or no MOH, it's your preference.  Also, you don't have to have even sides.  You can have men stand up for you on your side and your FI can have women stand on his side if he chooses.  Asking people to be in your wedding is about honoring those closest to you...for this reason there are no rules.

    MOH should be your closest friend(s). Having one or two is perfectly fine. Or none.

    Yes, uneven sides are fine, no matter what the ratio is. You're asking your closest friends to stand and witness your wedding, not pairing people off for a square dance.

    There are no "rules" about WPs. 

    WPs don't have to be symmetrical.  You choose your side, and he chooses his.  Stop thinking about numbers, and think about friends and family.

    WPs aren't gender specific.  Again, you choose your side, and he chooses his. 

    All of the "titles" are merely honorary, after all.  So you can call your attendants anything you want.  You can no MOH, 1 MOH, 2MOH, or all of them MOH.  (Of course, I think that making the all MOH is silly and dilutes the "honor" there, but oh well.)

    I can promise you that 5 minutes after your ceremony, you're going to wonder why you spent so much time worrying about this.
