This is totally about preference and how your wedding party is.

For us, we have uneven sides (3 girls, 4 guys). We’re also super untraditional. And we didn’t want any of our friends to feel awkwardly – they would have graciously dealt with it, but almost all of them are in relationships. Our Best Man an one of my Bridesmaids (not my MOH) are in a relationship.

Anyway, we’re having ours walk separately, so 4th guy walk first, then 3rd girl, 3rd guy, 2nd girl, 2nd guy, 1st girl (MOH) and then 1st guy (Best Man). Then Ring Bearer/Flower Girl.

Definitely a personal preference. I’ve only ever seen all boys, then all girls, but I like the idea of it rotating boy / girl / boy girl.

My MOH/FSIL and one of the BM/FBIL are actually married, and their sons (future nephews) are the ring bearers. We’ll probably have the two of them start things off together, then bridesmaid, second best man, bridesmaid, groomsman, bridesmaid, groomsman, ring bearers, flower girl (cousin/BM’s daughter) then me 🙂

A few of our wedding party are in serious relationships, so I don’t want to pair anyone together, either. (Except for MOH/BM that are already married, LOL!)

We are going to pair everyone up based on where they stand. Farthest GM/BM walk together, ect. Then have the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor walk last, then FG/RB then me 🙂 I have only ever seen it done this way.

Never made sense why groomsmen walk down the aisle.  Why would you have them come in after the Groom?  They are the Groom’s men not the BM’s escorts. The BMs lead up to the bride, not sure why groomsmen are part of that.

We are having our groomsmen escort the guests of honor down the aisle (mother of groom, grandmothers, my godmother, and mother of bride), so they technically will act as escorts, but not for the bridesmaids.  After they seat the mother of the bride, the actual processional will begin.

That’s your choice!  We had 6 BM/GM, and wanted to keep our ceremony as short as possible, so we sent them down together.  It’s totally up to you though!

It’s completely up to you! We’re having our BMs and GMs walk down together.

My groomsmen escorted the moms and grandmas down the aisle before the bridal processional, so they were all up by the altar when my bridesmaids started down the aisle.

It’s completely up to you, but every wedding I have been to has had the groomsmen come in from the back, near where they’re going to be standing, all at once.  The only time I’ve seen them walk down the aisle is if they’re seating the mothers, in which case they do that then join the other GMs who have already snuck in from the back.  In ceremony spaces where there is not an entrance in the back corner, they have come down the side of the room (on the guests’ right) instead of walking down the aisle, all at once.

We had them walk down together.  It was a completely last minute decision (seriously, we decided at the rehearsal the night before).  It’s completely up to you, though.
