Drop two bridesmaids? Some of them might be happy to drop out–being a bridesmaid is horrible.

Do you have 1 or 2 MOHs? (Or is that not finalized yet?) I you have two, then you can do:

MOH/BstM/MOH

BM/GM

BM/GM

BM/GM

JBM/GM/JBM

@indibee: that’s exactly what I was going to suggest.  Nothing wrong with having 1 groomsman or best man escort 2 maids of honor or jr. bridesmaids.

 @Jamie42003: I wouldn’t agree that being a bridesmaid is horrible.  Maybe if you’re a horrible bride it could be, but I’ve found it to be a very special and lovely honor.

@simplifiedbride I guess I didn’t mean that it’s horrible (I don’t like it). I guess I meant one or two bridesmaids might appreciate a chance to drop out. I dunno just a thought. 🙂

I had 6 bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen, and one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man was my sister. So I had her walk my mom down the aisle. People seemed to love that!

If the junior bridesmaids are quite young, I would not pair them with a groomsmen. They could easily walk alone. I am having my 9-year-old cousin as my junior bridesmaid and she is actually going to be pulling our miniature bride & groom (who are both 1 year old) in a wagon.

Yes I also agree not to pair the JBM with a grown man. Im having 6 girls total (4 BMs and 2 MOH) and 5 Groomsmen (possibly 6– 6th person is SUPPOSED to be my brother but he is having a 2 yr old temper tantrum about his NOW ex being in my wedding when me and her have been friends since before they even met). We are using 2 of our GMs as ushers also so they are going to escort and seat the Grandparents and then come back for the BMs. If my brother does fail to come to my wedding over some BS we are going to do the wedding as follows:

BM/GM

BM/GM

BM/GM

BM/GM

MOH/BM/MOH

 

This is the order of the recessional (wedding party leaving down the aisle). The order for the processional will be just the 2 Maid/Matron of Honor walking side by side.

I have 7 bridesmaids and 4 groomsme! Everyone is walking down the aisle solo because I lost my father and have chosen to walk solo so think the symmetry will be nice. I’m assuming you’re not in the same situation but I guess I don’t see why the bridal party has to walk in pairs?
