- Wedding: August 2010
So my bridesmaids are my 16-year-old cousin and three close friends who are in their late twenties. I’m not officially having a Maid/Matron of Honor, but I wanted my cousin to be the one standing nearest to me since she’s the closest thing I have to a little sister!
My fiance does have a best man (late twenties), then another friend (also late twenties) and his two younger stepbrothers (17 and 20) will be the other groomsmen.
I just realized last night that if we paired everyone up for the recessional, this would leave my little cousin paired with the best man who is a good 13 years older than her. And my other girls would be paired with the younger brothers, who definitely look quite young. I know I’m probably over-thinking this, but wouldn’t that look kinda awkward?
The only solution I’ve thought of is to just have everyone go single-file, but I’ve always thought that it looks cute for everyone to have an escort. I also thought it would be cute to somehow have my cousin paired with the youngest brother, because they’d just look so adorable together (my family already has matchmaking plans for those two!). But I have no idea how we would do that without it obviously looking like we’re trying to pair them up a certain way. 🙂
So anyway, I guess I’m just looking for ideas here!
