I hope this makes sense. I am planning to do the “wolfpack program”
The GMs will walk in the front with Fiance and BMs will walk by themselves down the aisle. So the program mentions the GMs, then the parents. After when listing the bridal party it says: “Shortly after, Wonderful Tonight by Vitamin String Quartet will start, and you will see our stunning Bridesmaids” then list Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid or Best Man2, BM3, Bridesmaid or Best Man4, BM5
Well I have them listed in the order they will be up front, not the order they will be walking down the aisle (does that makes sense?)
So should I change the program?
See below for the program example

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.

I have only been to weddings where the Bridesmaid or Best Man walk in the opposite order as they stand during the ceremony. Maybe a picture would explain better

@LillyLover: Grr… i know that is probably how i SHOULD do it
so I could list the Bridesmaids “walking in are our beautiful bridesmaid”
and then say “following them will be the MOH”
… see with the wolfpack program being like sentences, that is what is bugging me. But i think that works!!

At my wedding, my BMs stood in this order:
*left* Shannon – Diane – Danielle – Allison – Samantha (MOH) *right*
In the program they were listed:
And for some reason, they walked down in this order:
(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!

@LillyLover: It sounds like you’ve got it figured out but what a great link! There’s so much program info in one place! Thanks for sharing.
