okay so we have a cousin of my HTB who totally thinks hes going to walk down the isle with my cousin…once we sat down and discussed all OPTIONS we were thinking with him, he laughed at us and said its either THIS GIRL or THIS GIRL… both girls don’t like my cousin to be, how do i politely tell him this without making him think that im some sort of BRIDEZILLA!?!
hes already told me that i am PLANNING to much and that he is going to walk down the ISLE with my said cousin NO matter what! ….. i don’t wanna let macking mack down but i totally need to get it thru his head its not happening

I’d tell him that he really has no say in the matter and that he’ll walk with whoever the hell you want him to walk with. Another option would be to have the BMs walk alone and the GMs walk in with the groom. Then they would only have to walk back up the aisle with each other. This seems like not wanting to be reading partners with some one in like 6th grade lol. You’re not asking them to get married, just to walk together.

holy smokes what is his problem?! you get to choose the order, he gets to listen. That’s just how it works. He doesn’t get to pick his hottie for 5 minutes, sheesh!
Shoot, we had an engaged couple in our wedding and it didn’t work out for them to be paired up! and they WERE getting married! It’s not about him, it’s about you and your Fiance =]

I agree with EAQ, tell him its this way or no way and have your Fiance back you up in this. If it comes down to a fight and you don’t want to deal with it, just have them walk in alone. It seems like this guy might be a bigger hassle than walking down the aisle so try to get some support from the Fiance or Future Mother-In-Law on how to handle him in future situations.

You make the rules and set the pairing, don’t let him give you a hard time about it! Yes it is only a walk but it is also a dance. I was paired with the bride’S sister (MOH)’s husband last time I was in the wedding so the dance part was a bit awkard but the couple did it that way because the Maid/Matron of Honor was paired with the best man and then they based everything else on age so the 17 year old was not paired with the 40 year old. You get to decide what ever criteria you want to use, no matter how random.

Yeah, My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor and my BIL is a groomsmen. I don’t hear them complaining about not walking together. I’d just not tell him until the day of when you tell them face to face who they are walking with if that’s going to be his attitude.
