Typically (or in all the weddings I’ve been in and been to) it goes…
Bridesmaid or Best Man on the outside
othe BMs
Maid/Matron of Honor
Bride (And father) 

Are you having a rehearsal? This would let everyone get an idea of where they need to stand when they get up there to avoid a lot of shuffling.

I just read that it’s the farthest from you that walks first. Plus I see it as the closer the person is to you the more important. Ya know?

BMs and GMs are walking together, furthest from the center first.  Then Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man.  The me and my daddy-o.

We did what Frenchie described, although my brother walked me down the aisle not dad.  I’ve always seen it done this way, although that’s not to say you couldn’t try something else.

I’ve always seen the person furthest from the bride and groom go first, and Maid/Matron of Honor go last. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do it differently if you think it will look better!
