    We had such a small bridal party (2 groomsman, 1 bridesmaid, and 1 bridesman), so every one walked alone.

    Husband’s groomsmen walked in behind him. Bridesmaids walked in alone right before me. Everyone had a “partner” for the recessional

    @astuve812:  At mine the best man walked up with DH, the rest of the groomsmen walked in with a bridesmaid and my maid of honor walked by herself. For the recessional everyone walked out in pairs.

    @astuve812:  We have pretty uneven numbers in the bridal party – I have 2 and he has 4.  So I’m thinking of having the Groomsmen seat the mothers/grandmothers and then take their place up front while the girls walk in alone.  Walking out, the BM/MOH will walk together and the next BM/GM will walk together.  From there, I’ve toyed with the remaining guys walking alone or each escorting a flower girl – of which there are 2 so it would work.

    The guys are going to walk in by themselves with my H2B last then the the bridesmaids and finally me. We have an uneven amount of girls and guys so 2 of the grooms men will walk out with 2 bridesmaids each.

    @astuve812:  We have 6 and 6…so we’re planning on them walking in together…the hard part is that we have 2 couples in the bridal brother and his gf and my future B&SIL…so i’m completly clueless as how the order is gonna go. LOL I think BM’s are usually in order of who you are the closest with, and my future SIL in the one I’m least close with, while my FBIL would be first up behind the BM. lol. It might be easy having them walk in individually, but i’m sure that would feel like it takes forever with 12 in the bridal party, 2, ring bearers, and 2 flower girls lol

    @hazyleyedbeauty:  Ive heard that it depends on height after the MoH and BM. The attendants of honor are closest to you, then the rest go from tallest to shortest? Would that work for you? 

    We will probably have the men enter from the side and the maids walk alone.

    @astuve812:  Down the aisle? No, the groomsmen were standing there with my DH and the girls walked alone but the groomsmen did escourt them back up the aisle!

    Each walked down alone, and we staggered them so that one of my bridespeople walked down followed by one of his groomspeople until all eleven were up there.

    @astuve812:  Everybody does it differently.

    this is how we are doing it. 1)flower girls walk in with the page boys first. 2)then the MOH and bridesmaids walk in with the Bestman and groomsmen 3)then the FI with his mom 4)then me with my dad


    Hope this helps 🙂

    We will have the two best men walk in with the groom, and the bridesmaid and Maid of Honour will walk in front of me. I am not sure how we will have them walk out, probably alone and alternate, so Maid of Honour, Best Man, Bridesmaid, Best Man.

    Not sure exactly how we will have my FI and his Best Men walk in, we may have him walk with his parents up the aisle, just after the Best Men.

    I remember seeing an episode of Four Weddings where there were like 15 bridesmaids and 15 groomsmen. They each walked down the aisle alone and the other brides thought it took too long. I would’ve had them walk together if it were me, but it doesn’t matter that much either way. Whatever you feel like doing will be just fine.

    We’re having a small bridal party (2 of each, plus a flower girl) so they’ll all walk alone. We need to drag the music out as much as possible.
