  • Wedding: September 2011

Our groomsmen will be arriving via a snazzy golf cart transformed to look like a 1930s car, and our BMs will just walk down the aisle by themselves.

We have 8 gm and 4 bm, so when we recess, we’re going to just do it by how Fiance and I have arranged them and not worry about height.

I really like the idea of them being escorted down the aisle…. I prefer that to the groosmen waiting at the end. I don’t think I would do it in order of height though..I picture the Bridesmaid or Best Man walking down with the Maid/Matron of Honor, and then pairing the rest off randomly.

@Mrs. Meowerson: I’m not sure on this yet. I’m thinking on having them process in together and out together (with Fiance processing in by himself first).

As far as pairings, I cannot pair by height because the shortest bridesmaid is married to the tallest groomsman and I’d be a total bridezilla for splitting them up.

I think the other pairings will go by height as well as not putting the two people who once dated together (not that there is any bad feelings, just don’t want them to feel awkward).

aggh!I am having the same debate with myself at the moment,and losing(against myself,I know)I think Im goin to have my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man walk down together (theyre married) and then just the bridesmaids,and the rest of the GMs at the front waiting.

But Im still not sure……..Undecided

Groomsmen are only walking with the BMs during the recessional. There is one Bridesmaid or Best Man and one Groomsmen who are significantly taller than the others so they’re being paired up. No one in our bridal party is related in any way to anyone else so there are no obvious pairings outside of height. We kinda have a weird situation (2 Best Men, 1 Gm, 1 Maid/Matron of Honor, 3 BMs and a doggie ring bearer)

My GMs are standing at the altar and the girls will walk in separately. I have an uneven wedding party so it just makes sense to have them come in alone.

The GMs escorted the BMs down the aisle.  We matched them according to age/relationship (ie: my brother escorted one of my oldest friends since he is best friends with her younger brother).

They are walking down together with 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man escorted by 1 Groomsmen at the end (4 Groomsmen and 5 BM)

They will be paird 

Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man

Then by personalities in combination with height

I havent figured out what to do for order. I want to do alphabetical or something because I dont want people to think its ranked… Of course the 3 person party will walk last.

We are having the GMs escort the BMs. My mom thinks this is weird, but I don’t care; it’s how every wedding my Fiance has been in has been done. We will probably do it by height because my girls have no connection to the guys. However, the Maid/Matron of Honor and best man will walk in together and they are couple who should be getting engaged any day now so that will work out well.

We’re going to have the groomsmen escort the bridesmaids. We sort of have a secret agenda–it’s still 9 months away and we’ve already paired them up because we kind of want to fix up a Bridesmaid or Best Man with a Groomsmen 🙂

Our Maid/Matron of Honor and best man will walk together, and otherwise we just sort of paired people up by who we thought made sense.

our GMs are standing at the altar with Fiance, and the girls will walk alone up to the altar before me.

We had the gm’s standing at the alter with my husband and my bm’s walked down the aisle in order of who was standing furthest to closest.  🙂

We have an uneven wedding party, so we’re trying to avoid pairing them up as much as possible. The Groomsmen don’t know my BMs either, so it seems silly to make them walk together. The Groomsmen will be up at the alter with my Fiance and the BMs will walk before me.

I am pairing a Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen based on height. The Groomsmen is 6’5 and the Bridesmaid or Best Man is 4’10.  The other Groomsmen is 5’8 which makes my Bridesmaid or Best Man more comfortable 🙂
