Alphabetical order makes more sense than height order.

I listed mine in walking order, but I think alphabetical order would work also. I don’t know how many people will really be following the program when people are walking in… They’re going to be announced at our reception as they walk in, so I think that will probably help people figure out who’s who better than in our program. ๐Ÿ™‚

I see the dilemma.  You definitely want to have the same order in your program as when they walk down the aisle.  The wedding I was just in did it by height, except for the Maid/Matron of Honor of course. You might want to ask them for their heights so you can figure out the order.

they should actually be in walking order.  if you dont know walking order yet, the dont order your programs quite yet!

Here’s how I did it –  Maid of Honor had her own listing, Best Man had his own listing, then the other two Bridesmaids were listed under “Bridesmaids”, then the other two Groomsmen were listed under “Groomsmen”.

I don’t think it really matters which bm gets listed first.  I think I just listed mine in the order of which friend I thought was closest to me.  But no one is really going to analyze this, so don’t worry about it.

Great question! I’m doing Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man listed first and the rest to follow alphabetically. :o) I think that’s a fairly common way of listing.

I’m going to do the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man first, and then the rest in order of who’s closest to me and my Fiance, ironically that is in alphabetical order as well.

I’d say alphabetical rather than how they walk down. For me, I’m having my sisters walk in (by age), then FI’s sister, then my best friend so it was easy to decide the order. I think other than that option… ABC’s are the way to go
