another advice thread - no groomsman, one MOH, no bridesmaids, etc etc...
Posted 15 April 2010 - 08:37 AM
Our wedding is small. 10 people plus me and the fiance kind of small. I did ask my sister to be my MOH, and she is excited about it. FI will not have any groomsman standing up with him. So,
Question(s) #1: Does my sister walk down the isle before me? Stand up front or then sit down? Does my brother-in-law walk her down since there are no groomsman? And thoughts/experiences with this are much appreciated!!
Question #2: I personally would prefer walking down the isle by myself. It just seems lower key and more my style. Is this fairly normal? Have others had any issues with parents or family not liking the non-traditional walk? My dad is pretty tough and I don't *think* he will mind, but I do worry a little about hurting his feelings.
Any and all thoughts on how to make folks feel special while keeping it easy going and informal are appreciated!

I think having her walk before you or having her stand there would be fine. Maybe ask her what she would want to do.
I love being a Mrs.!

It was really OK even if she did not have anybody with her.
Question 2 : whatever feels good for you and does not hurt your dad's feeling is the right answer... there is no "must" or "must not do" there... it's YOUR wedding not anybody else's.

Regarding the Dad question. While I still lean towards preferring to walk by myself, my FI surprised me by answering he thought my Dad would really want to walk me down the isle when I asked him. He doesn't care either way, but I wonder if his male intuition picked up on signals from my Dad I didn't, and if so I certainly wouldn't want to leave Dad out and hurt his feelings.
Thanks for the thoughts. I will just have to see how details emerge as we continue planning, but it is so helpful to hear what other people do and bounce ideas off of folks here.

As for your sister, I would have her walk down the aisle and stand up at the front like you would normally do. The groomsmen don't always walk down the aisle so this will not appear odd.
In the end, it is your day so you need to do things the right way for you!
