Parents/grandparents should be seated first. Then groomsmen could come with or without the bridesmaids. Maid of honor would be last of the ladies, then the kids. Then you (dead last).

You do it however you want!


The groom came in from the side and was up there by himself. (His parents walked down the aisle to give the go ahead “goom and rev get in your places)


walking down the aisle our order was:


-BMs escorted by Gms


-Moh + best man


-ring bearer


-my parents and I

Our Pastor, Groom and Groomsmen all walked down the aisle in order of standing at the front…

Then my grandma was ushered in, followed by groom’s parents and then my mom.

Then the BMs went next one by one from farthest standing to center.

then the ring bearer and flower girls.

then me and my dad!

You can do whatever you want and it depends on the tradition you follow.

We were pretty random.  This was our order:


Groom with his mom

Best man

Groomsman (we did it this way because it is easier to position.  Best man stood next to groom, then groomsman a little further away).

Maid of Honor

Bridesman with his daughter the Flower Girl.

Me with my mom.  My dad passed away the year before but if I had both my parents I would have walked with them both (which is what I see a lot of brides do now).

What ever order you do, make sure everyone knows it, and where they are supose to line up.  That it looks smooth is almost more important as who walks in when.  If you don’t have a DOC, have a bridal attendent or aunt to be on hand to line people up and tell them when to go.  This is even more important if you have a RB or FG, as the children will need some guidence.
