Most weddings I have been to, the groom normally is waiting at the front of the church and doesn’t process in. 

And if the groomsmen and best man aren’t escorting ladies, they tend not to process either. 

Also, three songs unless very well edited will either get cut off at weird times, or be far to long for what you want. 

Do you have parents?  Is anyone seating them?

smilestorm:  I wouldn’t call it weird, but it’s certainly different.

Customs vary with ethnicity, geography and religion, but in these parts the groom and the best man,would normally come in the side door at the front of the church with the officiant.  They stand at the front and watch the processional. The parents of the groom, then the bride are usually the last seated before the groom enters and before the processional. Some couples do include the seating of the parents in the processional.

Then the order would be :

bridesmaids

maid of honour

ring bearer

flower girls

bride

How about this;

Your groom seats grandma, goes back and gets your mom, and finally, goes again and gets his mom.  It can lead to a really touching moment with his mom (it has brought me to tears at more than one wedding.) He can then go stand at the front of the church.  If the song he wants is appropriate, he can do this to that song.

Start song 2 and have Bridesmaid 1 walk in.  And then Bridesmaid 2/3 on either side of groosmen, followed by Bestman and maid of honor.  Guys tend to have… hand and speed problems when they are left to walk alone.  They don’t have anything to hold, and their hands end up everywhere.   Their shoes are also more comfortable to walk in, so tend to take long steps.  Walking with the girls tends to slow them down.  🙂 

Start song 3. Then you can have the ring bearer, the flower girls, and then you. 

This is just an idea.
