My FI has 2 groomsmaids. During the processional, do you think I should have the “grooms people” walk in seperate from the bridesmaids? Or just have them partnered up and walk down the isle together? I’ve randomly asked several people, and I get a lot of mixed answers. Thoughts?

Another option is to have his groomsmaids stand up front with him, and then your bridesmaids walk in before you, then you. This is what we did with the groomsmen and bridesmaids at our wedding. Then in the recessional they paired up.
If you want everyone as a part of the processional, I’d say pair them up. 🙂 They’ll probably pair up on the way out, so why not on the way in.

You could just have everyone walk in seperately instead of the bridesmaids and groomsmen hand and hand. It would look far less strange.

I’m assuming the groomsmaid will have a bouquet, as will the bridesmaid. It would be fine for them to both walk in and out together, but they wouldn’t link arms (since they are holding bouquets). I have a bridesman, and my plan is to have the brides attendants walk in singularly, then on the recessional, he will just walk next to the corresponding groomsman. Maybe they’ll high-5 when they meet at the middle before walking out. Who knows. And no one really cares, anyway, they are just wondering where the food is at.

@CaliBeeBride0813: Have them walk down in pairs; they’re not couples, they’re just pairs of people. There’s no reason it has to go “boy girl, boy girl”
We’re doing all the groomsmen together, then all the bridesmaids together, because we just find processionals long and complicated.
It’s fine however you want to do it.

I like it better when each person walks down the aisle on their own, anyway.
Last wedding I was in (mixed gender groom’s party) they alternated bridesperson-groomsperson-bridesperson-etc. Looked great.

I vote to have them walk in pairs.
