Glenbarr was a great venue for our wedding. The manager was difficult to get hold of at times.

3 Bridesmaids and No Groomsmen! HELP

My future Husband does not want groomsmen, but I want my 3 bridesmaids. How do we orgnaise photos and seating plan without making it look weird?

Glenbarr Homestead

Hi Madeline,

There are many ways to get around the uneven numbers.  It kind of depends on the form of your wedding as well.  If its a formal - will they have their partners there  to balance out.   Are there family involved in the Top Table.   I have seen completely uneven numbers on the tables and to be honest the focus is so on the Bride/Groom and bits that really no one is really counting the numbers.   Or are you having round tables?

The same really for the photos- some have the bridesmaids spread between the two side rather than all on one, or take them in such a way at the venue that you really dont notice.  I have seen some stunning photos with Bride, Groom and 3 Groomsmen - no bridesmaids at all.  . Again , talk to your photographer and see what they say as they may have other ideas and may know your venue well.
