    My sister was MOH, and her now FI was a GM, but not BM.  They walked together and nothing bad happened.
    Why do you have a problem with this?  What do you think it would hurt?
  • Ditto PP... why would it be bad for them to walk in together?

  • Why would you say no? it doesn't make sense for you to have them walk with other people.
  • You wedding won't be ruled invalid if they walk together... Promise...

    Or have everyone walk in alone! Nothing wrong with doing things that way either.

  • No I don't have a problem I just don't know how to make it work where they can walk together. He said he dosent want to be best man just because his wife isent the made of honor so how do I make them walk together when she would be the last bridesmaid all the way in the back?
  • My sister was MOH, her husband was a groomsman.  They walked in with other bridal party members and the world was fine.  I'm not sure why they are putting up a fight. . . . at the same time, I don't think it's something that you should really stress over, if they insist, just let them walk together and call it a day.
  • Yeah, this is something that nobody should be fussing over, on both sides.

    But he's already lobbed the fuss-ball in your court.  Just let it sail pass you while you gracefully and happily walk on your drama-free way.  Him walking with her doesn't ruin anything.

  • If it bugs you to have them out of order, have the bridesmaids walk in alone and the groomsmen either already up there or processing in before the bridesmaids. Then let them go out together for the recessional (no one really pays that much attention to the bridal party at that point, at all the weddings I've been to). He doesn't have to be pissy about not walking with her and you can still have her walk in last.

  • Sorry you have to deal with this, OP!

    DH was just BM in a wedding and I was "only" a bridesmaid. He walked with MOH, I walked with a GM...it wasn't the end of the world.

    BM could always escort his wife, but take the spot standing next to your FI at the altar and the bridesmaid takes her place at the end of the bridesmaid line. It'll be cool.
  • Agree with VonClancy.  Have the groomsmen walk up the side to the altar and not process in.  The bridesmaids process normally.  After the wedding, let the MOH and the next groomsmen to the BM's left go first.  I think that it would look less weird for the BM to stand there and go last with his wife than for his wife to cross the other bridesmaids to walk down with him.

    Also, I was MOH in my cousin's wedding and processed out with the BM who was married to one of the other bridesmaids.  NO ONE CARED.  In fact, a few other GMs and BMs were married to each other and I don't think that anyone lined up together.  Again, NO ONE CARED.  Your fiance's BM is being ridiculous, but if he wants to go last with his wife, that's up to him.

  • He's definitely being ridiculous on his end, but it's also definitely not worth the headache.  I'd go with what previous PPs said about having the groomsmen up at the alter already and having the BMs walk alone.  That or just have the Best Man up there already with the Groom and have everyone else walk in (with one Groomsman accompanying two BMs).

  • I was just in a wedding where the best man's wife was a BM and they walked in and out together. He just took his spot before the MOH and then at the end waited for her to walk to the center. The MOH walked with one of the GM and he just had to take a couple extra steps at either end. It worked out just fine and I doubt anyone noticed.
