We had 2 maids of honor, 4 bridesmaids, 1 best man and 4 groomsmen…. so 6 girls in total and 5 guys.  We simply had them exit the church in pairs of two and the best man escorted both maids of honor (same thing when they were introduced at our reception).  You could just have one of your bridesmaids walk with two guys. 

We didn’t do a bridal party dance (they don’t all know each other and most are married or in relationships, so we felt this was unnecessary and would be awkward) so we avoided that problem altogether 🙂

ddnove12,

here’s what I suggest for leaving the church:

Flower Girls

MOH/Best Man

BM/GM

GM/BM/GM

GM/BM/GM

Alternative: have the GM walk the flower girls out

For the first dance, have them pair up with each other and anyone left over have them dance with their significant other (if they have one) or tell them to grab a friend. There’s no rule that says the bridal party much dance with each other. In fact, you can invite all your guests to join you at the end of the song. That’s what we’re doing, it really helps get the party started.

Yeah, I think most bridal party dances can be really awkward.  If you’re not really attached to it I would skip it altogether.

However, walking down the aisle, it would be fine for one bridesmaid to be escorted by two groomsman on either side.

Yeah I wouldn’t worry about it. Ours may be uneven as well (maybe not, but we’ll see), and I’ve always thought it was cute when a GM took on 2 BM or a BM had 2 GM.

we are letting the men stand up there and letting the women parade down the aisle one by one. It makes for a pretty processional.

Ours is going to be uneven too.  Plan is that my bridesmaid will walk with both groomsmen out of the church.  She’s excited she gets two guys to walk out with.

mine is uneven too. we have a extra bm (all pretty short like 5’3") and my little Bro is 6’8", so he gets to walk with two girls. I think it will look great!
