What’s a “Junior Bride”? Sounds fun!

The weddings that I’ve been in, the order has always seemed to me to reflect the relationship to the bride: family closest to her, then oldest/closest friends, then other/newer friends. That means the other/newer friends come down the aisle first. I’ve always assumed that was kind of the unsaid assumption (I’m always trying to see how close I get!)

Also, I’ve seen the children in either place –before or after the adults. But my big suggestion is to let the kids sit down with their parents after they walk down the aisle. Either that or have them all the way at the end of the line-up. I’ve never seen kids in a wedding that didn’t distract me. I guess some people think that’s cute, but, um, not me. And in a worst case, they have a freak out or something. I guess it depends on the kid and the age, though.

Aw, that’s sweet that you created a position for your little sister.  I have the same people as you without the junior bridesmaids and junior bride, and I’m planning on the same thing- bridesmaids, then maid of honor, then matron (who is also my older sister).  Ring bearer is my nephew- so my sister needs to be up front first so he will walk to her!
