Especially if the girls walk down by themselves rather than with a corresponding guy, the audience will barely notice that your numbers are uneven. I’ve seen two guys walk a girl back up the aisle, just as I have seen one guy with a girl on each arm. I’ve also seen bridal armies of greater than ten on each side (by that point, guests lose count of the bridal party anyway).
