Theo and I have been talking, and he would really like to add another groomsman. I am all for the idea, and am so appreciative of the relationship that Theo has built with this man. Right now, we are leaning towards having an extra groomsman. But then the Bridezilla in me comes roaring out and I think over and over….
“BUT IT WILL BE UNEVEN.”
I have other girls that I could add as bridesmaids…no problem there. But I do not have any extra cloth to make another bridesmaid dress. The cloth is from Niger, and while I can get some more the tailor is already hurrying to finish up my order so that she can begin to make her daughter-in-law’s wedding dress, so I do not feel like I could burden her with another dress so close to the wedding. And I can’t have someone besides the maid of honor wearing a different dress (and the MOH’s dress is already made.)
So here is where I need your help. It looks like we will have an uneven wedding party with five girls and six boys. Really, this is fine. People and relationships are far more important than pictures and an even walk down the aisle. This man has been a mentor and an accountability partner for Theo, and including him in the wedding party is a privilege and a way that Theo wants to use to say thank you.
But what are some ideas of things that I can do to make it work? In the walk down the aisle? In the pictures? I would welcome any ideas!!!
