When leaving the church would the one groomsman walk with both bridesmaids (one on each side) and the same thing for walking into the reception?

Yes.

Also we have two ushers and one flower girl do we incorporate them into the walk in for the reception also or can we just make it the bridesmaids etc..

It depends. The flower girl should probably be introduced during the reception. I’d have a parent escort her in. If she is very shy, it might be best to skip it. As for the ushers, most people do not involve them in the reception part, but you could have one walk in one of the BMs and the other the flowergirl if you want.

I’ve never seen ushers, flower girls, or ring bearers included into the walk into the reception.

I’ve seen mismatched numbers for the bridal party and they either walk in alone or there’s two girls for a guy or two guys for a girl.

We have mismatched #s, and my Brother-In-Law is just going to walk with one of my cousins on each arm. He’s gallant, he’ll pull it off. πŸ™‚

@BetterSherm:  I’ve never seen them not included. 

 

Also, the parents are usually introduced as well as the grandparents are acknowledged at their tables.

Yes, have the two BMs walk with the one Groomsmen for both ceremony and reception.  If the flowergirl is really shy you can have her go in with others or just acknowledge her at her table.

I had two groomsmen walk with one bridesmaid, into the ceremony as well as into the reception.

@Vegas Pug:  Interesting. I’ve been to my fair share of weddings, and the children are never included. I honestly love finding out what’s regional or not, by me at least. It puts things in perspective.

I have been to more than my fair share of weddings (16 in a 6 month period one year) and, yep, they (children, if part of the wedding party) are always included.

I have never seen anyone officially “walk in” to a reception other than the bride and groom. I think it’s okay to skip a formal entry πŸ™‚

As for them walking out, I think what you suggests works well πŸ™‚
