Hi! I’m completely new here and about ready to ask 10,000 questions on all kinds of stuff that I’ve been turning over in my head and unable to determine an answer on.
My first questions is in regards to our processional and recessional. We have a large bridal party, 8 bridesmaids, 8 groomsmen, 2 junior bridesmaids, a flower girl and a ring bearer. I know it’s alot, it was originally just 5 and all family members… But I was really aching to add my three closest friends, and just this weekend decided I dont really care if people think my bridal party is big, I want my friends involved.
But our party is very… diverse. In height and size as well as age. I’ve been trying to figure out who to pair with who to walk down the aisle… My sister and my fiance’s brother are our maid of honor and best man, so they are paired up no matter what.
Aside from them we have three exceptionally tall guys and two of them are heavier set… We have my cousin who is extremely tall, although not as tall as the other three, and three other groomsmen are about average height for guys.
For my girls I have two who are around 5’1″-2″, next one is probably around 5’6″ ish, then my cousin who’s probably an inch or two taller, next is the same heigth as my groom around 5’8″-10″, next one is only a couple inches taller, then the last one is 6′?” but extremely tall for a girl and pretty heavy set.
So my first question (after this lengthy introduction) is… will people in the wedding party who are dating be offended if they dont walk with their significant others? I just thought it would look best to pair up based on height.
Next questions is specifcally for my tallest bridesmaid who’s a little heavier… Of course we would pair her with one of the tallest guys, and my fiance thought we should pair her either with the tallest/biggest groomsman so it would look best, or with the second tallest/biggest groomsman since they are friends. I personally am afraid that if we pair her with one of the heavier guys she might be insulted, as if we are pointing out that she is the heaviest girl. And she is truly gorgeous and wears her weight very well and is very confident with her own body. Do you think it would be wrong to pair her with one of the taller/heavier guys? I mean, we’re also pairing the shortest girls with the shortest guys.
I don’t know!!! LOL.
