In Jewish weddings the groom is walked down the aisle by both his parents just the bride is.  It’s completely up to you guys!  It may be tricky if you don’t want him to see you before you come down the aisle but other than that it’s no issue at all.  I would send him up first, before the moms and the bridesmaids.

Fiance is technically walking down the aisle. We’ll be playing Canon in D Celtic Mix while the offiant, Fiance, and the Groomsmen walk to the front of the room…

My groom (and all the groomsmen) will be walking down the aisle to line up before the bridesmaids – pk maybe the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen will go together…haven’t decided! – and then my father and I will walk.  I have heard that the “chicken” way for the groom to get to the front is just coming in the side and being there, as opposed to having to face all the people turned to stare at you…haha.  Silly, I know.  So I tell him – “you don’t get to take the chicken way in!  You get to walk in front of everyone just like I do!”  I think he should because it is “our” day, even though many people (and I am guilty of this too!) say “It’s MY day!” or “It’s the bride’s day!”.  Plus, my church has enough space that he won’t see me before I get to aisle and he is already up there waiting for me, so that helps this work too.

At the end of the day though, it really is a personal decision and I think you are good to go with either.

at my wedding, my groomsmen walked in first and then the groom.

 

after that my bridesmaids walked in and then it was my turn!

Our wedding is in Greece this July and the tradition there is that the Bride’s family walk her to the steps of the church where the Groom and his family are waiting. The Groom presents her with her bouquet and together they walk into the church, next their family members, and then all the guests.  Very different from here.

Sure!  Fiance is walking his mom in.  He deserves a moment, as far as I am concerned.

Sure! I’ve seen the groom walk down with the best man prior to the beginning of the ceremony.

We’re getting married in a Catholic mass, and I believe the groom processes down the aisle at the very beginning with the priest and the altar servers.

We have decided that FH will walk down the aisle with his parents (after the groomsmen) then bridesmaids, then me with my parents – when we decided this we didn’t actually know this is traditional in jewish weddings – we just thought it was a nice touch!
