Our processional:

– FI’s mom is escorted in by usher

– Groomsmen, bridesmaids and flower girl enter to “Butterfly’s Day Out” by Yo Yo Ma

– My mom escorts me in to “Smile that Way” by Vitamin String Quartet


FI’s grandparents can’t attend and my father is deceased.  His father is his best man and his sister is a bridesmaid.  If your FI’s sisters are not bridesmaids there is no reason why you could not have the ushers escort them to their seats along with the grandparents and mothers.

Fiance, Officiant (one of his best friends) and the 3 groomsmen

FIs mom, escorted by FIs little half brother

My mom, escort by my cousin

Bridesmaid 1 (assuming she shows to wedding)

Bridesmaid 2

Flowergirls (hopefully on own, but if not, with Bridesmaid 2, their mom)

Me & my stepdad



Bridesmaid 2 (& flowergirls) if they want

Bridesmaid 1

3 guys (either together or on own)


Your FIs sisters could be the ‘start’ of the processional, before the moms are seated, assuming you have music that would make people realize it was the processional and you didn’t have them in the bridal party.

My aunt and uncle aren’t technically part of our bridal party but we’ve included them because they’ve always been a huge part of my life so yes, I think your FI’s sisters can definitely be apart of your processional. Do you have any ushers that can escort them?

Officiant will walk down first

Fiance will escort both my and his moms, give them hugs, seat them to Louis Armstrong’s “It’s A Wonderful World” and take his place at the front.

Bridesmaids will be escorted by Groomsmen, ending with Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man to “Hallelujah” (the Paramore version) done by Vitamin String Quartet

My dad and I will walk to “Sunrise” by Norah Jones.
