    I think more than half an hour is pushin it. It’s pretty expected to stand for at least 20 minutes or so, though you should take into consideration your BM’s shoes.

    We had our whole bridal party stand for about 30 minutes during the ceremony. All in all they were really on their feet a lot longer because our ceremony started at 4:00pm and went until 4:30pm, but my girls had to walk from my room with me at about 3:30 and didn’t get off their feet until after photos when the reception started at 6:00pm. These are things to remember!

    Every wedding I’ve seen that was anything except for a full Catholic mass, the bridal party stood the whole time.  I think you’d be absolutely find for 30-35 minutes!

    I have been to catholic weddings where the wedding party did stand for most of the wedding which tend to run long.  So it is do-able but I would make sure the wedding party is in comfortable shoes in that case.

    I say that I would be comfortable standing for about 30 minutes or so, otherwise you’re party will start to tune out and just wonder when the wedding will be over.
