Obviously the Maid/Matron of Honor and best man are next to the bride and groom at the altar, but is there any other way/reason to set them up? I think about things too much…
Should you decide how to pair the 1 bridesmaid with the certain groomsmen then go with that, or what? Im lost
How did you bees do it?

I picked the pair I considered most outgoing to go first, because I thought the rest might feel awkward. After that I went based on shoe colors, since I had 2 bridesmaids in each color (6 BMs total). I don’t think its like, in order of friendship or anything. Some people use height, depending on your ceremony layout.

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
Every wedding I’ve been in with multiple bridesmaids, the bridesmaids and groomsmen were ordered by height tallest inside, shortest outside.

I plan on doing tallest to shortest because my MOHs and I are pretty short and that way also when they are at the altar, the tallest will be more further down, allowing the shorter people to be closer and to have a better view.

I know Im going ti have 6, possibly 7. Obviously the Maid/Matron of Honor and best man are next to the groom and I, but he also has another best friend next to his best man whose girlfriend I used to work with, who introduced us. I want them next, for those reasons. Then after than I was mind boggled. Thanks for your help girls!
Edit: all of the girls are roughly the same height. give maybe 2 inches or so. I would have to look at the boys though.

On my side, I did it by order of closeness, but a) I’m in a situation where that won’t hurt anyone’s feelings and b) no one has asked me how I decided this, so it’s even less likely that anyone’s feelings will be hurt.
I’m having six attendants, including the Maid/Matron of Honor. From the inside out, it’ll be my Maid/Matron of Honor (my best friend), S (best friend), sister A, sister B, and the grooms’ two sisters, older then younger.
I’m fond of my sisters, but we aren’t close. I’m much closer with my best friends. And I’ve only met one of the groom’s sisters, and that for a weekend at their house. She’s a sweet girl, and I’m sure that the other one is too, but we’re not exactly close :P, at least not yet! I asked them because I liked the idea of the amalgamation of the families, and I wanted them to feel a part of the wedding, too.
