Should You Match Your Wedding’s Bridesmaids and Ushers According to Their Height?
One bride takes the “perfect wedding” thing too far when it comes to choosing her attendants

The Wedding Guru answers: Regarding the number of attendants, the short answer is “no” — inviting someone to be an attendant simply to balance the number in your wedding party is foolish! If you’re concerned about having an even number in your processional (so no one walks alone), you can have two bridesmaids (or two ushers) walk down the aisle together. If the aisle is wide enough, you can even have three — it’s not uncommon for one groomsmen to usher two bridesmaids.
As far as height requirements, just ignore it. What’s important is having attendants you truly want to honor (hence the phrase “honor attendants”).
