When you’re doing your rehearsal, you just tell people the order they are walking in.  She might not even think anything of it because she’ll also get to walk in first.  Honestly, I’ve been in two weddings and didn’t think anything of where I was standing.  I was just told “You are walking in at x time with x/alone” and that was that!  Even easier if you have a planner or someone running the rehearsal because you just have them do it.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much.  I based the order of my 5 girls on height.  My Maid/Matron of Honor was the shortest, so I went from shortest to tallest.  There are all sorts of reasons for the placement of our “girls”.

Mine are going in height order.. I really dont think they care either way. 

Also you may be suprised that the BMs that seem to not be doing much now, will be the ones who go the xtra mile on the actual day of the wedding.

I agree with PPs. She probably has no idea what “order” she fell in the first place, much less if it changed. And it’s not something that should be made a big deal of. If it makes you feel better having “number three” switch with “number two,” then by all means do it! Secretly. 🙂

I would switch it if it makes you feel better, and put the non-helper at the end! haha…but if it messes up the “look” of everyone for example, if one girl is really tall and the other really short then i wouldnt mess with it. Maybe give her a special brooch or bracelet to wear the day of to show your appreciation.
