Wedding Processional: Where Does the Bell Girl Fit In?

Q:

I am helping a friend with her wedding party setup. There's a maid of honor, a bridesmaid, two junior bridesmaids, two ring girls, one flower girl, and a bell girl, who will announce that the bride has arrived. I'd like your opinion on the bell girl: Where is she placed in the wedding processional?

A:

It sounds like your friend has found a great way to include children who are important to her in the wedding. If the bell girl's role is to announce that the bride has arrived, put her directly before the bride on the way in. So the order would be: junior bridesmaids, bridesmaid, MOH, ring girls, flower girl, bell girl, bride.
