We are having a small DW comrpised of approximately 20 of our closest family and friends.

 

7 of the 20 are in our bridal party.

 

I dont know if we should have them standing beside us or sitting down. Or even walking down the aisle for that matter....

 

I feel like if 7 out of 20 people are standing up/ walking down the aisle -  it is going to make for a very small, sad audience.   :huh:

 

I am also letting them where whatever they want so no one is going to be matching.

 

Any suggestions or prior experience is greatly appreciated!!


One Love  ;)

Jenna

Hello and congratulations! Small weddings are so nice, it feels romantic and intimate and special, it's an amazing feeling that's for sure.

 

If you wanted to have your bridal party sit down and be a part of the audience, I think that's a nice idea, and this way the focus will really be on you and your hubby standing at the front! Personally, and this is just my opinion, I would still have the bridal party walk down the aisle. This a way to feature your party, and in a way, introduce that the wedding is starting and you will make your grand entrance soon. Especially if your bridal party is wearing whatever they want, if they aren't matching, you want them to stand out, right? Isn't that the point of a bridal party in the first place? If they are wearing whatever they want, and sit with your guests, you may as well not have a bridal party at all. Personally I think it's nice to feature those you chose to be close to you and stand with you on your day.  :)

@JennaMarie901 I completely agree with @jackshayne0123. I would have them walk down and then perhaps reserve the first row for the bridal party to sit in. I was in my friends catholic wedding and since it was a mass ceremony that's exactly what we did, because no one would want to stand for an hour. This is also what we did for my sisters wedding. We walked in and sat down in the "audience" and then walked out after her and her husband walked down the aisle.
