I would like to have jr. bride's maids in my ceremony, but where are they
placed in the processional? I have 4 brides maids, 2 jr brides maids, 5
groomsmen and flower girl and ring bearer. How do I line up the processional?
When you have junior bridesmaids in your
processional, they should stand the farthest away from the bride unless they are
quite short. They will enter first, then the bridesmaids, then the maid of
honor, ring bearer, and flower girl last.
Depending on the amount of room available at the
church and how the groom prefers to handle it, you can either have the
groomsmen walk in with the groom and minister (they go in first before any of
the ladies), or you can have the groomsmen escort the ladies in. In that
case, the minister and groom would enter first, then one of the groomsmen with
the two junior bridesmaids (or the first one can walk in alone and the second
one with an escort), then have the others walk in together in pairs. The ring
bearer and flower girl can also pair up.
For the recessional, people walk out in the
opposite order in which they entered: bride and groom; children; maid of
honor and best man; groomsmen and bridesmaids, with the junior bridesmaids
being the last to exit.
You may want to think about what it will look like
in the facility you are using, then decide how you want the wedding party to
enter. You can try out both scenarios at the rehearsal and decide which flows
