    Do you have an uneven number of people? Just curious why you don’t have the groomsmen escorting the bridesmaids down the aisle?

    I prefer when the groomsmen enter together and not with the bridesmaids. 

    I think in your situation it is fine for the groomsmen to walk down the aisle. At my wedding, the officiant came first, then the groomsmen, then the groom.

    I want my FI to be waiting down at the bottom of the aisle for me, I don’t want him to have a chance of seeing me in my dress until I’m at the top of the aisle which I guess he’d be able to do if the whole bridal party were going to walk down the aisle.

    Actually, in the UK often the bridesmaids walk down behind the bride – I’m marrying a Canadian in the UK so we’re going to do the procession more the Canadian way with the bridesmaids walking down first, but I don’t think I’d want him doing that.

    At my FIs brothers wedding, my BIL was escorted down the aisle by my MIL – it worked, just wasn’t for me.

    I think that will be fine.

    I’m kinda having the same issue and trying to figure it out.  I think it’d be fine the way you described it but I also like them walking in from the side.  🙂  I may do the walking in from the side thing.  I dunno, we rehearse soon so our officiant can help us figure it out.

    @chickiebee:  In an ideal world, they would enter from the side. In churches, this is possible because side doors and often side wings exist, but this is not always possible in alternative locations. At my wedding, for example, we were on the beach and the runner went down the aisle. For the men to have come down the stairs and then walked around the side in the sand to not go down the aisle would’ve been more awkard than it was worth. Plus, we were already having guests walk down the aisle to be seated instead of making them come from the sides too. It’s really a situatonal issue, so if a side entrance is not practical, I wouldn’t worry about it. There will probably be a formal break in the music anyway between the men entering that the bridesmaids (and then again before the you).
