In alphabetical order would probably be the easiest

Honestly its whatever you want! I ended up just putting them in order that they walked down the aisle. Its as simple as that! Just relax and realize you are the only one paying THAT close attention!

I did it by how long I’ve known them, so Maid/Matron of Honor, SIL, DH’s friend, girl I babysat for 3 years.

We also had the couples walk together, even though there’s a 1′ difference between SIL and her SO.

southernmc:  We basically did ours in the order in which they were going to stand in the front of the room (starting from closest to the couple). I didn’t even realize that’s what we did until you asked. See a screenshot of the inside of our program from when I was designing it with Wedding Paper Divas.

I’ll most likely be doing our in the order that they’re walking down the aisle. That way, friends and family looking at the program can see who is who as they come down.

It would be weird to me if my husband/FI was in the wedding party and I wasn’t able to walk with him. I promise OP, no one will care about the varying heights. I vote let the couples walk together, and list them in the order they walk down the aisle.

southernmc:  I wouldn’t list it alphabetically. That would confuse me as a guest and I wouldn’t be able to match names to faces I didn’t know, so what’s the point of even printing the names?

Yea…. this is wayyyy over thinking. 

We each have two and i have a junior. 

I havent decided if i will have programs but if i did I’d do it in order of who is standing beside us. 

Height has no impact on us as everyone is all over the shop. However  i dont think it should have any impact as its about who is your closest.  (Sorry, symmetry in photos isnt a big deal to me.)

We listed them in order that they walked down. DH didn’t care what order the guys were in, so we paired everybody up and the girls stood in order of how long I’ve known them and the guys just stood across from their partner. The way I looked at it is, when I’m at a wedding and the girls are walking down the aisle I look in the program to see who they are. 

And if you have some married couples, I would pair them together. I’d be a little irritated if my DH and I were both in the bridal party and were not paired together.
