I don’t think there’s a hard-and-fast rule. At a recent wedding, the Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man (who was 11 and the bride’s daughter) walked with a groomsman (he was 19 and her cousin). I also think it’ fine to have them walk solo, or the two of them could walk together.

We had 5 BM’s & GM’s, 2 RB’s, 1 JR, and 1 Flower Girl.  The JR walked down alone after the BM’s, then the two RB’s together (they’re brother’s), and then the Flower Girl.  I think you can chat with their parents and the kiddos to see what they’re comfortable with.

@jackie_t4701: It would depend on their relationship with them. Maybe if they can walk down with an uncle or another Groomsmen that they are comfortable with. Personally, I like the idea of the two of them walking down together. Especially, since they are so close in age.

I would probably have the girls walk alone or together.  IMO, I think it would look a bit “odd” to have grown men paired with young girls.

I honestly think it would depend a LOT on the guys – there are some guys that age who I know who are great with kids and would do a great job. There are others who I know who would feel awkward, and still others (not my friends!) who might even make inappropriate comments and would NOT be okay walking with a preteen girl.

Oh, just another thought, the two girls could walk together, might be less nerve wracking for them!

@jackie – Don’t stress so much, just ask us to help!  Wink  My BM’s walked up to meet the Groomsmen, then the JR, the RB’s, and then the Flower Girl.  The Flower Girl (if you have one) should always be last to spread the petals before YOU walk down the aisle.
