My fiance and I had our attendants originally planned out as 5 on each side. My parents said they would pay for the vast majority of the wedding but they would like me to ask my brother to be a part of the wedding because they believe his feelings might be hurt if he is not. This makes for 6 groomsmen and 5 bridesmaids. I tried to explain to my fiance that this is no big deal - we can send down my last bridesmaid with 2 groomsmen, but he is insisting that he is uncomfortable with this scenario. He thinks that doing this makes it clear that we hadn't planned on having my brother in the party at all (Which is true since we do not have a close relationship) and it will be awkward for all involved. My fiance has not officially asked anyone to stand up on his side yet, but he is not willing to subtract any of his planned groomsmen either. I could maybe come up with one additional bridesmaid but it would be awkward for me to be forced to ask an acquaintance. I had originally planned to simply ask my brother if he would prefer to be an usher or part of the wedding party, though we believe he would probably choose to be a groomsman over an usher. I have also mentioned this situation to my parents and they did not seem to be satisfied with him being an usher. I should also clarify that I have no problem with my brother being part of the wedding at all, no matter if he's a member of the wedding party or an usher. What advice can anyone give?
