You shouldn’t have to make someone a Maid/Matron of Honor to appease them.

Like you said it’s only 3 minutes!

It’s your bridal party! what does your Fiance think?

I agree – the best man walks with the Maid/Matron of Honor.  Surely she can cope for that short amount of time.

He doesn’t even want to walk down with his woman? Yikes… that’s the most alarming part, not the actualy problem at hand. I’d vote they not walk together, only because I feel bad for the dude, who should have the balls to stand up for himself. But that’s another issue entirely.

so Rain will get her panties in a wad if her Boyfriend or Best Friend (the groomsman) is walking down the aisle with a Maid/Matron of Honor instead of her???

heheheh [insert evil laugh here] is Maid/Matron of Honor single? because im in a bad mood today so i would be imposing MOH/GM photos, dance and sitting together at the table and anything else i could to mess with Bridesmaid or Best Man – of course in a few hours i will feel terrible about these ideas

This is actually the exact time when it is appropriate to split up a couple.  Of course the Bridesmaid or Best Man is paired with the Maid/Matron of Honor.  It’s literally 30 seconds down the aisle.  It’s not like they are going to making out as they exit!  If she has a fit tell her she’s welcome to sit in the pews with the rest of the guests : )

I have a similar situation! I have 2 MOHs. FI’s best man’s wife is one of my BMs. What I’m going to do is have my 2 MOHs walk down together. Then the best man can walk down with his wife. They’re great about it and are fine with walking with other people but I figured this will work so why not?

I think in your situation you shouldn’t feel guilty for splitting them up! They can all be adults for just a few minutes of your wedding!

@eloping: lol

OP: Don’t even worry about it. It’s like a 5 second walk. If she has a problem with it, smack her and tell her to STFU and that it’s your day! ^_^

Oh for crying out loud, unless her guy gropes the Maid/Matron of Honor, she has absolutely no reason to be pissed off about this.

I don’t think it’s a big deal. We have a couple in our bridal party – he’s the best man but she’s not my Maid/Matron of Honor. They’re grown-ups, they can handle spending a few minutes walking with someone else. Just my opinion.

Do you have a lot of people in your bridal party? If you want to keep the peace, you could have everyone walk separately.  I’ve seen this done at a lot of weddings with smaller bridal parties- one person goes down the aisle at a time.

I agree that it’s 2 minutes and a few photos. I think that they can manage spending that time apart. If she flips out, you can just let her know that it’s your decision, and it’s not up for discussion!

@eloping: That cracked me up!
