sorority sisters

I am planning an august 2012 wedding and my fiance and I have started to talk about who we want in our wedding party, but I have 5 girls (my pledge class sisters) and 1 made of honor (another sorority sister) and he has a best man and 3 groomsmen. I would like to have an even amount of bridesmaids and groomsmen for pictures, but I don't want him to just choose 2 more guys just to make it even because I don't want to look back on our wedding pictures and wonder why we had random people in our wedding party. My pledge sisters are all very close to me so I don't want to only have a few and not all of them because I don't anyone to feel as though they aren't important enough or anything like that. So what do I do?

Thanks!

    Don't worry about having even sides.

    WPs should never be about symmetry.  They should be about having those you care most about standing with you during the wedding ceremony.

    Having said that, if your wedding is August, 2012, I'd like to suggest that you wait until after Halloween to ask anyone to be in your wedding party.  Take a minute and scroll through a couple of pages of posts from brides who asked too early and now want to know how to kick out their former bff, sorority sister, cousin, college roommate, etc. because the relationship has changed. 

    I know you think that your relationships won't change.  So did all those posters.  If yours don't change, great!  You won't have lost anything by waiting to ask.  If they should somehow change, you won't be in a pickle.

    Finally, just for me:  google "uneven wedding parties".  Look at the photos.  They're lovely.  There's nothing wrong with an asymmetrical WP.  There's a lot wrong with asking random people for the sake of equal sides.

    Good luck.

    Sounds like you have your answer.  Uneven sides are fine and your pictures won't look odd if you don't have the same amount of guys and gals.

    We had uneven sides. And I would never have just chosen people to make it even. We can look back at our pictures and see our closets friends and family at our sides supporting u's. Sure we could have picked more people, but it wasnt necessary. Our pictures look great! It definitely not about an even number.
