Sorry, I just don’t know the answer, but I can bump the thread for you. Try to bump it again around 6-8pm Eastern–you’ll get more responses.

Hmm, I think i’d go with this order but I don’t think it matters all that much.  Go with whatever flow makes sense to you. I’m not really sure what a bell ringer does but I’ll give it a shot.

The bible carrier can hand off the bible to officiant and then sits, then the ring barriers , then the bell ringer and then the flower girl should absolutely be last for me.  You don’t want all the flowers she throws to be pushed around.

I just put everyone in “how long ive known them order”  with the newest going out first and ending with the Maid/Matron of Honor.  Most weddings I have been to, if you are doing the ring bearer the guys get up to the front first, then all of the girls. So the ring bearer would either go out with the best man or right after.  Then all of the girls.  You could always have the Maid/Matron of Honor pull the flower girl in the wagon.  Most every wedding I have seen with a flower girl, she goes out right before you do.

Just get one of the wooden ones and paint it white and put some tulle bows on it.  That can be her gift for being in your wedding.
