    I think what we are doing is..

    Groom and Best Man already up front…

    Bridesmaid or Best Man 1 and Groomsmen 1…

    Bridesmaid or Best Man 2 and Groomsmen 2…

    Maid/Matron of Honor alone…

    2 Ring Bearers

    Flower Girl

    Me and Dad

    Not sure if this is right…Maid/Matron of Honor might be right before me.

    in the wedding i was in as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, we walked in ‘alone’ w. the guys already up there, but exited in pairs.  i liked how that looked…in our wedding, we’ll have 1 Maid/Matron of Honor, 1 Best Man, 2 Bridesmaids and 1 Groomsman, so I think when they exit, the bridesmaids will be on either side of Groomsmen and Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man will exit together.

    I have been to both also, and do not have a preference. I have not decided myself. Let your Fiance know that no one at your wedding will notice the Minuit details, and it is something you want.

    We did Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen in couples, Maid/Matron of Honor alone.  I liked it because it made the Maid/Matron of Honor pop more, otherwise she just looked like another Bridesmaid or Best Man.

    I prefer the bridesmaids and groomsmen to process in seperately rather than in pairs.  We had all the men process, though.  Our order was priest, groomsmen, Bridesmaid or Best Man, groom+parents, bridesmaids, Maid/Matron of Honor, Flower Girl, bride+parents.  I never really understood why the groom would sneak up front before anyone was looking.

    In real life, I’ve always seen the bridesmaids walk in by themselves and the groom and his attendants walk in with the minister. I don’t have a preference but I personally feel that it would be lopsided to have the maid of honor walk in alone if the other bridesmaids are being escorted by groomsmen. For example, the Youtube entrance video had a mixture of guys and girls walking in together and it didn’t look strange at all, dancing aside. It boils down to personal preference. Your attendants will be happy to go along with whatever you decide.

    I prefer to have the groom and groomen in front with the bridesmaids walking alone and then of course the bride.  All would pair off during the recessional.  I think I prefer it this way because it reflects the fact that the bride is walking alone and then leaves with her partner.

    Mr. Arboretum and I just had this conversation today. We’ve had friends do it both ways. He thinks that all the guys up front with BMs coing in alone is very appropriate for a church ceremony. But since we’re outdoors he likes the couples thing. So I’m not sure..I think it would be cute if he walked his parents down, and then our couples started. Then the flower girl and ring bearer followed by me and my dad.

    Our BMs and GMs are walking up together — but then, the mister is processing, as well.  Our church is just a bit goofy 🙂 and like to do things a bit differently.

    I have actually seen a lot of times where all the groomsmen walk in first and stand up front. Followed by all the bridesmaids. But I kinda like the idea of them walking in together for some reason.

    I would rather all the attention be on the girls since most would much rather look at a beautiful girl and their hair and makeup and dress and all the time they invested on getting beautiful for the wedding, than have them paired witht the Groomsmen. I don’t like having the Maid/Matron of Honor walk by herself if you are doing couples because to me that seems like you are making her “extra special” when the bride is the special one.
