I don’t think it matters.

So when they’re standing with you up front they’ll be in a different order than when they walk down the aisle?  That may look weird to have them walking around trying to find their spot.

As far as the program goes, I’m doing Maid/Matron of Honor, FI’s sis (BM), then Bridesmaid or Best Man 3 & 4 in alphabetical order.

I don’t understand how the two orders would be any different. Assuming you have the girls walk down the aisle as follows: Bridesmaid or Best Man1, BM2, Bridesmaid or Best Man3, Maid/Matron of Honor, Flower Girl, YOU, and they all take their traditional place (left of the bride), at the altar it would look like:

Bridesmaid or Best Man1-BM2-BM3-MOH-FG-Bride

Which would be the same order they walked down the aisle. 

Are you asking because you wanted to list them in the order they’d be walking in the recessional? Am I making this more complicated than it should be? I am so confused!

Nevermind, I am an idiot. I think I understand what you are asking. A quick google search led me here:

It says to list the Maid/Matron of Honor first and then the bridesmaids in the order they walk in. I have cross-confirmed this on a few sites; but it’s spelled out the most professionally at the one I linked above.

At my wedding, my BMs stood in this order:

*left* Shannon – Diane – Danielle – Allison – Samantha (MOH) *right*

 

In the program they were listed:

Samantha
Allison
Danielle
Diane
Shannon

 

And for some reason, they walked down in this order:

Allison
Danielle
Diane
Shannon
Samantha

(I would have expected Shannon to walk down first.)

 

Does this confuse you even more?  lol

@BrookieCookie9:  Wow, you have amazing picture-doctoring skillz! haha. I don’t know… I’m sure you can do whatever order you want. Clearly there’s not one “right” answer or you wouldn’t be having trouble deciding!!

I do like the alternate wording you supplied, if you choose to go in that order!
