My (Clare) side of the bridal party is a little different. I was looking for a way to include my brothers in the whole deal, while still allowing Zac to have some friends on his side of the bridal party and making sure that there wouldn't be too many people standing with us when we say our vows (c'mon, someone has to be in the congregation!)
So, after little while of pitching a sneaky plot to Zac, we came up with an idea that allows to to include our 4 brothers and 4 of our friends.
Quite simply, we will both have our two brothers and two friends stand with us.
It will look something like this:
L-R: brother, brother, friend, friend, clare, zac, brother, brother, friend, friend
There are some logistical issues to work out, Phillip was particularly concerned about how the boys would walk back down the aisle.
We've never really been interested in hooking up my friends with Zac's friends, so the idea of them walking arm-in-arm out of the church was a bit weird for us anyway.
Who knows. Maybe single file? Maybe the boys can just give each other a handshake and a kiss on the cheek and still link arms and go down the aisle!
These sort of things should be fun to work out :)
