(Closed) Exit

Not to worry, this should all be covered by your officiant at your rehearsal.

To ease your mind a little, typically the officiant will announce you and your husband to the guests. From there, you kiss and face the guests. They will clap and cheer! Then you will recess down the aisle with your husband. Followed by your bridal party (reverse order they walked in, so Maid of Honor and Best Man, then Bridesmaids and Groomsmen). Then typically your parents and his parents. Then the officiant. Then the guests. 

However, each ceremony is different and you can always make it unique to you! 

If you are doing photos in the ceremony space after, before your reception, I would recommend you and your husband – after walking down the aisle – turning down the side aisle to head back to the front of the church. Your bridal party and parents will follow. Then once your pictures are done it doesn’t really matter how you exit! 


Good luck and enjoy your beautiful day!

Something else to consider if you are doing pictures afterwards is that you might want to hide out somewhere while people leave.  I’ve seen couples that haven’t done that and of course everyone wants to wish them well, etc. and pictures can take awhile to get started.  I’ve hidden out in some choir lofts as a bridal party member before.
