Selecting and managing your bridal party can be a stressful process. That's why we're here to answer all of your wedding party etiquette questions!

During the procession, in what order do the kids in the bridal party walk down the aisle?

In most ceremonies, the ring bearer and flower girl make their entrance (either single file or together) right after the groomsmen and bridesmaids. Then it's your turn. If you feel they're mature enough to stay still for the whole ceremony, they can stand directly in front of the wedding party at the altar. Otherwise, have them sit with their parents after their duties are completed. Just be sure that Mom and Dad are seated up front for easy access!
