Hehe that could be fun depending on if you had some people in the wedding party you were forced into having.

At the one’s i’ve been in they seem to line you up in height order with the groomsmen.  but i’m sure you can do it anyway you like

Well I decided in advance on the pairings of bridesmaids and groomsmen (based on who knew each other and who I thought would get along well.. and general height guidelines since I had some super short bridesmaids).  And then I actually decided the order based on the groomsmen.  My brother and my husband’s cousin had to be the last two to join the groomsmen at the front because they were walking our mothers down the aisle.  So their partners walked up first (making them farthest from me once they all lined up just like their partners were farthest from hubs).  And then obviously the Maid/Matron of Honor and the Bridesmaid or Best Man were closest to us.  For the few in the middle I actually did line them up in order of who my husband was closest too.  Because boys don’t figure stuff like that out.

We’re doing it by height.  Shortest will walk down the aisle first.

We went by height (although they stood on different stair steps so it didn’t really matter – just makes it very easy and non-partial).  Besides my Maid/Matron of Honor being closest to me, they went tallest to shortest.

My wedding coordinator (sounds fancy, but it’s really just my aunt, lol) says she organizes everyone by height unless we have a specific preference.  I’m all for easy, so it will be by height. Tongue out

I am going with height. It is the most arbitrary way I could think of to do it. I didn’t want them to think that I like any one of them more or less, plus it will look nice in pictures. It does work out that they will also be in line by order longest I have known them too.
