I need serious help with this arranging thing. Fiance is arranging the groomsmen by chronological order (they’re all brothers and about the same height 5’9″-6′). My bridesmaids on the other hand are another story, I have 5 bridesmaids, I am really short 5’3″ maybe 5’5 with heels and my Maid/Matron of Honor is 5’8″ plus heels, she’s the only the one standing next to me during the ceremony, the others will be in front to the side. I don’t know for the other bridesmaids whether to do it by height, as 2 are really short 5’2″-5″5 and the other two are like 5’8″ and 6′. My idea was to have it be the 6′, then 5’8, then 5’5, then 5’2 bridesmaids with tallest being closest to the center/ Maid/Matron of Honor so there’s less of a height difference and it doesn’t zig zag but that would mean my sister who’s shorter would be towards the outside and I think my mom might dislike that. The other option would probably be to do it by closeness which would be Maid/Matron of Honor, then sister 5’5″, 6′, 5’2, 5’8″ but I just feel that would look really weird, because it would be short, tall, short, tall or maybe switch the last two. Any ideas, I have no idea how to do this, but if I need to change, I need to do it now. I had planned on doing it by height, but my sister and more than likely mom will throw a fit about being towards the end and not first, so I wanted opinions.
