I had posted previously about deciding on whom to include in my wedding party and we have finally made the decision. There is still one issue to work out…
My Fiance is having a best man and four groomsmen & I am choosing not to have a Maid/Matron of Honor (because my mom declined and that is who I wanted) so I am just having 5 bridesmaids.
Is it okay for the best man to walk a bridesmaid down the isle? I do not wish to make any of the bridesmaids my Maid/Matron of Honor because that position is what I wanted for my mom and honestly she is the only one I would want to have as my Maid/Matron of Honor.
What do I do bees? What are your opinions? I don’t know the proper etiquette is here…

I think its ok but I don’t know the proper etiquette. I almost feel that there would be more questions if both your best man and bridesmaid walked themselves down the aisle.

Yup, you can do whatever you want with the bridal party. I think that it is perfectly ok to have the best man to walk a bridesmaid down the aisle. Also, you could only have the ladies walk down the aisle and have alll the guys standing up at the alter waiting.

I think it’s totally okay! You can do whatever you want, both processing in and recessing out, whether that means the guys wait up front like ETwedding suggested, or whether they all walk in together and then all walk out together.

I have decided to have the guys standing at the alter and the girls just walk in alone, but I was more worried about the exit. Does that even matter?

i think that’s fine. i would just put them in height order so you don’t have to pick who you want to stand where.

I don’t think it matters at all. I can’t imagine anyone would notice the difference. I think a Bridesmaid or Best Man should walk down the aisle with the best man if everyone else is exiting together, arm in arm or however you want them to.

I’d have them pair off as they walk back down the aisle, which is pretty traditional for the exit. I don’t think anyone will notice that there’s a best man but no Maid/Matron of Honor, I don’t know if anyone pays attention to the status like that if they’re not knee deep in their own planning.
