Hi Bees! – our wedding party is a little wacky, so I would like your opinion and feedback on our processional…. every time I look at it, I find something i think should be different, and I’m pretty sure what I’m doing is changing the same 3 things back and forth every time 🙂 so, all this back and forth is preventing me from printing my programs 🙂
we have 3 sets of parents, cuz mine are divorced and have new partners (for the last 12 years)
none of our grandparents will be escorted down the aisle, because they cannot wait to be seated due to health issues
we have six attendants for each of us (including MOH/Best Man), HOWEVER – adam’s best man is also his dad. one of my bridesmaids is a man
here is our proposed processional
for ease of understanding, i will GM#1, 2, etc for groomsmen and Bridesmaid or Best Man #1, 2, etc for bridesmaids, and Maid/Matron of Honor for maid of honor
- Groom and oficiant at front of aisle
- Groom’s Dad/best man and mom – mom sits, dad/best man stands with groom
- bride’s dad and stepmom – stepmom sits, dad loops back to bride
- BM#1 escorted by Groomsmen #1 and Groomsmen #2 – maybe I should have one of these GMs escort step mom instead of having dad loop back? not sure….
- Maid/Matron of Honor & maleBM#5
THANK YOU FOR ANY SUGGESTIONS!

I would have Male BM#5 escort your stepmom and take his place at the front. That way you dont have the two Groomsmen escorting one BM#1. Each person has just one partner.

Can I please get some more input on this? I have emailed my coordinator for her opinion but haven’t heard back yet….. I really want to get going on these programs… Thanks bees!

I agree that male Bridesmaid or Best Man should escort stepmom. That way itlooks neater and everyone has one partner. Other than that it looks great!
