I don’t believe I have ever seen a processional where the groom and groomsmen walk down the aisle.  I believe they typically enter from the side before the processional begins.  ETA:  I think basically once the guests are seated they take their place at the front (with the officiant) and wait for the processional to begin.

Ooh, I’m going to subscribe to this thread because I’m wondering the same thing. Our venue is set up so that there is nowhere for FH to “hide” and just step out but he doesn’t want to walk down the aisle either.

This is actually the more traditional way to do things. Most churches have an entrance at that end of the church that the guys (and the officiant) can use. If it’s not at a church look around to see if there is an entrance down at that end. Or they can just come in awhile before the procession starts and sit in the front row until it’s time for everything to start.

I agree with Jengirl, have in the front, I guess mingling a little, and have them take their places when ready. 

Wll they be walking down the aisle with the bridesmaids?

I’ve seen a lot of weddings where the BMs and Groomsmen were paired walking up, but I didn’t want that. We ended up having a back entrance, basically, and the men came through there… they were supposed to come in first, before the music started, but they ended up coming in after the parents and grandparents and right before the BMs… oh well 😛 Darling Husband escorted his only living grandparent up the aisle, which everyone thought was adorable, otherwise he would’ve come in from the side too.

I originally thought there was no side entrance, so I was planning on just having the Groomsmen walk up first in the processional. Otherwise I think you’d have to have them walk up front at least 15 minutes beforehand, so they aren’t just walking up randomly, but that could work too.

I have never seen a groom or groomsmen walk down the aisle. They usually enter from the side and stand there and then the wedding processional begins.
