What order did you/are you doing it?
I’m tempted to do:
flower girls (because they’re super cute and deserve the attention)
me and my dad
But I’m also wondering about sending the bridesmaids before me (kind of American style)
What do you think?

@RainStorm: I like the American way. I found the vicar gives a lot of guidance for anything that happens in the church. We did it the traditional way.

I prefer the traditional way, bride and father, then bridesmaids. Easier for bridesmaids to sort your dress if they are behind too! My little bridesmaids were not scattering petals or anything so they also walked in after me too.

We’re doing it kind of the American way, bridesmaids will walk in with groomsmen, then a ring bearer, if we have any because we don’t really have any young kids in our family so we might have our MOH and BM to carry the rings, then me and my dad and then a train bearer. 🙂

I think I’m going to go with:
My mom with my paige boy (3 year old nephew) as we have to walk down a staircase
My 3 bridesmaids
Then me and my dad
Groom and Groomsmen already at the front

If we were having a WP (we aren’t) they would walk behind us something about them walking in first sticks in my throat.

I had not even thought about it.
But I presume it will be Me and Dad followed by my two bridesmaids.

We had flower girl/page boy first, then the two bridesmaids, then me with my dad. The venue co-ordinator sorted out my dress before I walked down the aisle.

It will be me and my Dad followed by my bridesmaids. Sending the bridesmaids first would just seem wierd to me!

@RainStorm: I thought I’d be doing bridesmaids first, because I thought that’s what we do. This is ridiculous, actually. I was a bridesmaid for my cousin a few years ago and I’ve totally blanked on what order it normally happens in, and what order my cousin did it in.

The groom and best man were already waiting at the front when I entered. As is traditional for church ceremonies, the priest enters first. There may also be assistants with him if you are having the Eucharist with the ceremony, but we didn’t.
So, it was the priest, then me, then my bridesmaids.
As far as I’m aware, the traditional British order of procession is:
– The priest or officiant, if appropriate
– The flower girl/page boy/little kiddy roles, if you are having them
– The bride and, if appropriate, someone to accopany her (eg her father)
– The bridesmaids, who help to carry the bride’s train/stop it catching on things, arrange her dress, and hold her flowers
