What order are people having their bridal party enter? Bridesmaids before or after the bride? I’m so confused!
I’m having my page boy walk down, then my flower girls then maid of honour then bridesmaids then il follow
Bridesmaids before is American, bride first is British. It's just aesthetic, and whatever you want. I'm going last because I prefer how that looks
In the UK it's traditional for the bride to enter first. In America the bride enters last. So unless it a church where they will say the bride enters first. So it's entirely up to you how you want to make your entrance! Xx
Bridesmaids are walking first. I think otherwise they barely get looked at and I want them to have their moment as well.
My wedding is in 13 days
My maid of honour goes in first , then bridesmaid and flower girl and I'm going in last want them to have their moment x

in British weddings it is tradition for the bride to go first. in American weddings the bride goes last but seems loads of people do that now. (I did it the traditional way).
My wedding is in 11 days. My bridesmaids are walking in front of me x
My flower girls are each paired with a page boy, they will go in first. Then my adult brides maid, then my MOH, then my three child bridesmaids (my daughter & step daughters) & then me last with my dad x

I got married on Saturday and had my bridesmaids walk first. You need those extra few seconds to compose yourself!!!
We all walked together, holding hands, my mum, my 3 year old daughter and myself.
Bridesmaids walking in front, even my photographer recommended it that way.... x
Bridesmaids before me
Before - Want the build up before I come in lol
I'm doing bridesmaids then maid of honour then me :) xxx
I was going traditional and having my bridesmaids walk in after me right up until the last minute when it all got changed. I got married on a terrace in the garden outside of a country house and our aisle was a lawn on a hill. We had to walk down a driveway behind some bushes to get to the bottom of the lawn for our grand entrance. It wasn’t until we got to the bottom of the bushes and the music started playing that the man who owned the venue panicked and told me that there would not be a lot of room for my bridesmaids to get past my dress to take their seats once we were on the terrace. I’m terrible at making decisions but had to quickly turn round and say “Right! Off you go girls!” This was just after our conversation about them being glad to be following me because they didn’t want to be the centre of attention 😂. What I’m trying to say here is that I was quite certain that I was sticking to tradition but then it didn’t matter in the slightest on the day. Do it whichever way you prefer.
I had bridesmaids go first, then me
Very American to have bridesmaids first
We had ours before, first was my page boy with 2 little flower girls, next was my 2 older flower girls and then my 2 bridesmaids followed by me and my dad
I had my sister (bridesmaid) walk down with my children (flower girl and page boy) then my 2 other bridesmaids and then me and my dad zx
Speak to your venue and photographer as I was going to walk 1st with bridal party following until my photographer pointed out she may not be able to capture everyone walking in as her priority would be capturing me meeting the groom and the maids may still be walking in at this point. Other than that I really don't think it matters either way.
My flower girl went in with my MOH and then my two bridesmaids went it, me and my dad last. I needed those extra few seconds to compose my trembling hands, also feel like the bridal party get the bit of recognition too.. also builds the suspense for you! However it’s your wedding and you should do whatever you want to do!
I'm sending the bridesmaids first so that I can shuffle on behind them!
I'm not having bridesmaids but I would go last x
Bridesmaids first. I was at a wedding where I was one of the bridesmaids, there was also a page boy and flower girl. The church beedle insisted that the bride went first even though we were adamant that we should go in before the bride with the two little ones. The page boy was a horror who would not behave himself, bride had on a long veil and said horror stood on the veil and pulled it and the brides head dress off. Fortunately my sister who was also bridesmaid was quick and managed to sort everything out but we had an upset bride as a result. So bridesmaids first, it is safer.
Bridesmaids before me
We are having three child bridesmaids first and then my sister and best friend together to ensure the 3 girls get there and then i am walking with my daughter as i may have to carry her as she still isn't walking and then my dad is following behind me with my son and nephew, son will only be a few months old and nephew will be ring bearer x
Ann Webb 🙂
I'm going to have flower girl then bridesmaids, MOH and then myself and my Dad. Although that may change as the flower girl will still be quite young then x
I had bridesmaids first then MOH then me and my Dad
I was going to go first, but then I got this for my daughter, so decided to have my maid of honour walk in with my daughter and page boy, then my flower girls with my other bridesmaid following to keep them going, then finally me and my dad.
When I was a bridesmaid last time, we were told by the vicar (quite rudely) that it’s American custom to send the bridesmaids first and that the British way is for the bride to go in first. He wouldn’t let us go in before her, which messed up her idea for her entrance music...😡x.
I'm having bridesmaids walk 1st with both my parents giving me away
I had both, flower girl and page boy walked together to set the pace and start off the ceremony, then my two little bridesmaids, me and my dad then I had my two older bridesmaids behind me. This was in a church xxx
You can do it however you want! Your choice! I’m walking in after my bridesmaid
I had my flower girl, 2 bridesmaids and man of honour walk down together then I walked down with my uncle as I needed that extra moment and I wanted the smaller ones to feel special.
Do what’s right for you, I didn’t figure it out till an hour before.
my bridesmaids are coming in before me xx
When my sister got married she had her bridesmaids first, down a staircase entrance, then myself as MOH. I didn't actually know this was the American way but reflecting on it, it doesn't make much sense to me to have the bridesmaids last. You've already made your entrance everyone should be looking at you!!! Haha. I do think it looks nice when the bridesmaids follow the bride holding a train etc. It's really personal preference but I think I'll be sending mine first in case I change my mind 😂😂
I got married in may. I went first then my bridesmaids after. You don’t get to see your husband to be’s face if it’s the other way around. I guess it depends on how nervous and confident you might feel. Whatever it should be your choice, it’s your special day xx
Flower girls, bridesmaid, Maid of Honour, then me :) personal preference though 😊
My Maid of honour/bridesmaid are going first. I want them to have their moment as well.
