We are having a very small wedding, approximately 15 guests, and then myself, fiance, and daughter.
We are having a difficult time coming up with how to do the ceremony, entrances specifically. My best friend is my maid of honor, but my daughter is also playing a special role in the bridal party too. She’s 10, and will be standing up there with us as well (right next to me). My fiancés brother is his best man. That will leave 13 people who will be sitting (parents included).
Would it be silly to do the traditional parents walk down the aisle, with a guest list that small? I know it would be wrong to rob them of that, but Im just concerned about the aesthetics of it, and basically half of our guest list included in this walk.
Any suggestions on how the entrance should go? Or is this just a non-issue that I’m freaking out over for nothing? (Haha)

I think it’s a non-issue. No one will really think that much of it! So do what feels right for you.

We were thinking of having everyone standing in a line on either side to make a kind of human isle, with Fiance at one end, and my dad walks me up to him. Then we all take our spots for the ceremony. I think that makes it feel more intimate and less weird.
Your guests of honor could walk before you and join the end of the line closest toward your fiancé, so that then there’s still plenty of people lining the “isle” when it’s your turn to walk.

We are having a similarly sized wedding, and thought tge same thing about having half the guests walk in, so we’re skipping the bridal party altogether and just having our parents walk with us. My very young god daughter really wants to walk down the aisle too, so she’ll walk in first and then go sit with her parents.
