Hello hive. Fiance wants to walk down the aisle with his mom. I’ve got a couple of questions. How does the processional for the guys normally happen? Is there music?
If he is walking with his mom, do the officiant and Groomsmen come out together as it’s normally done and then Fiance walks with mom?
I’m just trying to iron some things out and I’ve never seen it done. Thanks!

You can arrange it basically however you want. What we did was have the priest walk down the side aisle before the processional began. Then, our families and wedding party walked down the aisle. Finally, my husband walked down with his parents, and then I walked down with my parents. Each group of people (family/wedding party, groom and parents, bride and parents) had a different song. I just arranged the order how it made sense to me, since I had never been to wedding either where the groom walks down the aisle.

Ours is going to be:
Fiance walks his mother down the aisle and seats her. Fiance goes to the altar
Best Man walks Grandmother of the Groom, seats her, goes to altar
Groomsman #1 walks Grandmother of the Bride, seats her, goes to altar
Groomsman # 2 walks Godmother of the Bride, seats her, goes to altar
Groomsman #3 walks Mother of the Bride (traditionally seated last; this is also my brother walking her), seats her, goes to the altar
Then 1 Bridesmaids, flower girl, and my two MOHs (sister and SIL), then me and my dad.
They will all walk with the same song, and then I’ll walk in to the traditional “here comes the bride”

Traditionally, the officiant and groom begin at the front. That’s how I wanted it, but my FH wants to walk his mother down. Here’s our order:
Officiant is at the front from the beginning/walks down
Groom walks his mother to her seat, hug, she sits. Bride’s mother and grooms father walk down together. Both hug the groom.
Middle bridesmaid (in order of standing) and middle groomsmen
Maid/Matron of Honor and Best man
Flower girl and ring bearer (adult friends)
Bride and bride’s father.
The exit will be bride and groom, Maid/Matron of Honor and best man, middle bridesmaid and groomsmen, flower girl and ring bearer, parents escorting each other.
