I have three boys 12, 8 and 2. I am planning to get married next October and would love to have my oldest son walk me down the aisle. The problem is I don’t know how to have my other two boys come down. I don’t want it to seem as though I’m choosing one over the others but I can’t walk with all three and would like my 8yr old and my 2yr old to walk together right before me. My question is… Is it awkward to have my flower girls then my two boys, then me and my oldest? any suggestions about order would be greatly appreciated.

@AngE0522: I think what you mentioned, flower girls. younger boys, then you and your older son, is perfect!

@AngE0522: Why can’t all three walk you down? Is it physical space? I think the idea of going as a group, with your oldest having you on his arm is beautiful. And, at 12, I think he will really enjoy such an adult, yet basically idiot proof, role in the ceremony, and he will appreciate the special moment with you the most of the three of them.
Alternatively, the younger boys could escort the flower girls down the aisle, like bridesmaids and ushers normally do.

@AngE0522: I think it’s fine to have your younger two sons immediately before you. Assuming the FGs aren’t your daughters, that’s how it should be: your sons are more important in your life, so they take priority over the FGs and walk closer to you.
Another possibility is your two older sons walk you, and your 2 year old walk with the flower girls.

@Duncan: yes, the aisle isn’t wide enough for all four of us. I never thought about them walking down with the flower girl. That might be a possibility as well.
@paula1248: actually my two oldest are from a previous relationship and my youngest is with my fiancé. So having both walk me down and my youngest walk with the flower girl, might be the best idea if we can fit, my aisle is small… Flower Girl isn’t my daughter, she’s my best friends little girl.
