There will likely just be my immediate family in attendance (max 8 people). No bridal party of any kind. If you did something similar, did you still walk down the aisle?
I thought about just having FI and I enter from opposite sides of the officiate and walk towards each other. Or just skip that and we all just show up and take our places/seats without any music or fanfare.

@DW82: We had 12 guests- including our MoH and BM. We walked down the aisle to music- the whole 9 yards! I walked down with my dad- wouldn’t have done it any other way.

Aww! I LOVE the idea of you two walking towards one another!

This is my second wedding. I don’t feel like I need to be walked down the aisle a second time and my dad doesn’t care either way.

I was at a tiny wedding once (10 people including the bride and groom) and the bride walked in between the few people who were standing. They left an “aisle” for her (only two people long!) but it was lovely.

I’ve been to a wedding that had about 25 guests, and the bride still walked down. I’d say do whatever you want!

We had 75 guests and we no one walked down the aisle. It just wasn’t our style, and we had a very relaxed outdoor farm wedding. So all involved, myself, groom, bridal parties, officiate, were standing at the front while we invited people to sit down after the cocktail reception we started with. I loved it!!!
But if you like the walking of the aisle, go for it for sure!!! Doesn’t matter how many are attending 😉

My wedding is about 60 and I am still not doing a walk down aisle – but because it isn’t important to me. If you want to do it, you should. If you don’t want to, don’t. We are just greeting people as the arrive, having everyone grab a beverage and settle in, then sort of get everyone’s attention and do the ceremony.
I think however you feel most comfortable and happy will be the thing that flows the best for you.

I had 13 people at my wedding (including DH, the photographers and me) and I walked down the “aisle” (beach) toward my husband. It was really beautiful and I wish I could live that day over again. It went soooooo fast.

I haven’t really made up my mind yet. I may not make up my mind until the day before for all I know lol

@Scintillante: Interesting. Did you still do the wedding dress and decorations and stuff, or were you low key about that too? I think I could really go both ways now that I know what the guest list is like and what their attitudes are (they’d prefer we just go to the courthouse).

Nope, we just figured out where we were going to stand like 5 minutes before starting, and then stayed put.

@DW82: we had 4 guests so everyone walked down the aisle! It was on the beach so it wasn’t an aisle per say, but a path with flower petals on the sides. The 4 guests went in couples before us, then DH & I walked down together. It worked out great for us despite the fact that we figured that out about 2 mins before the start of the ceremony!

Not me, but my sister is planning ~20 people family only. I think she is still going to walk down the aisle with our dad.
