Happy Tuesday, loves! We’re answering the latest Ask Emmaline question from Laura. She asks,

“My fiancé has selected four people to stand up in our wedding: his brother as Best Man along with his best friend, cousin, and friend from work as groomsmen. I have selected my sister as Maid of Honor and my two best friends as bridesmaids. I don’t have anyone else I would pick and I don’t want to pick someone just to even out the number. Is it okay to have uneven bridesmaids and groomsmen?”
