So, early in the planning process I’ve come to a confused point. There are 2 couples in our bridal party. We thought it would be great if they walk down the aisle together, but, unfortunately, they’re standing order is different (as in, one member of the couple is the best man and the other is a bridesmaid).
We have a few options. My Fiance suggested us having them walk down the aisle together and just go to separate assigned positions. I’m afraid this will look disorganized, could get confused on the day of, and I wanted my MOHs to be the last to walk down the aisle.
Another way would be to just have the girls walk alone. This would work, but it would be nice to have them walk in pairs down the aisle…especially with their significant others.
A third option is to just have them walk with whoever’s most convenient standing wise and line up in order.
No matter what, we’ll introduce them in their couples, so I know they’ll enjoy that.
What do you girls think? Did any of you have a similar problem?

oops, i was confused. i retract my vote! i think they could just walk down with whoever — no big deal.

Well, one of my bridesmaids is engaged to one of my FI’s groomsmen. Our standing order is not conducive to this, and one of my FI’s attendants is his pregnant sister.
So we thought that would look weird.
We’re going to have the men and the sister lined up on the grooms’ side but let my bridesmaids walk out one at a time. I’ve seen this done a few times and it looks really nice. I don’t think it is a big deal if they aren’t paired up with their SO’s, but I think if you planned it accordingly so that they knew they would be standing in which order, they would just take that place. That’s what your rehearsal is for, so it would probably be fine and the only way it’d look disorganized is, for example, if somebody stands in spot #2 when they should be in spot #3, then some bumping might ensue.

I have a couple in my bridal party, the the guy is my Fiance best man. We’re just having them walk down in height order.

I’m confused I thought Groomsmen always stood next to the Groom and only the BMs walk in w/FGs & RBs?
Either which way we have a couple in our wedding party too but the female is my Maid/Matron of Honor and the male is the 3rd Groomsmen so they will just stand differently. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal for the few minutes at the ceremony and the couple minutes during the announcement and first dance (if your asking Bridal Party to join you). And they are getting introduced as they are because the female is my Maid/Matron of Honor so she should get introduced with the Best Man. So if we bumped her Boyfriend or Best Friend up to get introduced with her I think that will be a little weird. But I think if they are just bridesmaid and groomsmen then that is probably not a big deal?

Ok we have a potential couple in our party (both people are interested) and we’re planning on putting them together (unless things don’t go well). If it was the best man and a bridesmaid and another couple, I’d put that couple together, and then the BM/BM couple I’d put with Maid/Matron of Honor and whoever.
