I picked the pair I considered most outgoing to go first, because I thought the rest might feel awkward.  After that I went based on shoe colors, since I had 2 bridesmaids in each color (6 BMs total).  I don’t think its like, in order of friendship or anything.  Some people use height, depending on your ceremony layout.

Every wedding I’ve been in with multiple bridesmaids, the bridesmaids and groomsmen were ordered by height tallest inside, shortest outside.

I plan on doing tallest to shortest because my MOHs and I are pretty short and that way also when they are at the altar, the tallest will be more further down, allowing the shorter people to be closer and to have a better view.

On my side, I did it by order of closeness, but a) I’m in a situation where that won’t hurt anyone’s feelings and b) no one has asked me how I decided this, so it’s even less likely that anyone’s feelings will be hurt.

I’m having six attendants, including the Maid/Matron of Honor.  From the inside out, it’ll be my Maid/Matron of Honor (my best friend), S (best friend), sister A, sister B, and the grooms’ two sisters, older then younger.

I’m fond of my sisters, but we aren’t close.  I’m much closer with my best friends.  And I’ve only met one of the groom’s sisters, and that for a weekend at their house.  She’s a sweet girl, and I’m sure that the other one is too, but we’re not exactly close :P, at least not yet!  I asked them because I liked the idea of the amalgamation of the families, and I wanted them to feel a part of the wedding, too.
