So, after lengthy discussion and lots of deliberation, my fiance and I decided originally to have 4 people on each side of the wedding. On his side would be his best friend ( a man), his father, his best man's wife, and a female friend of his. On my side would be my maid and matron of honor, my brother, and my (female) cousin. Last night, he called me to tell me he wants his father in a more traditional role and for his sister to stand up with him instead. Let me be clear, on an individual basis, I have no problem with any of these women being in our wedding. As a group, though, I think it's a little odd that we will have three times as many girls as guys. All of the women have already been asked and said yes, so it's not like we can drop them, and I don't want a wedding party of 12 (us filling in 4 more guys to close the gap). Even though I'm not thrilled with the arrangement, it's one I can love with. My mother (who is paying for the wedding), insists that this is highly unusual and doesn't bode well for the marriage. Her opinion is that the people who stand up with you in the wedding are the people that you are going to for help and it doesn't bode well for me if he is going to a group of largely girls, one of whom is unattached. So, now I'm freaking out and don't know what to do. My fiance is frustrated with me because I told him it was okay and then changed my mind on further reflection and talking with my mother (a bad habit I need to break myself of). So, the question is, what to do?
