So it’s a catholic ceremony, the groomsmen will be seating people until the wedding starts. I think I’m going to have the best man, his brother, escort my mom down the aisle as part of the processional, but what about the other four groomsman? Should they walk two by two down to the altar. Or somehow after seating everyone, magically appear at the altar without coming down the aisle? Or something else. The groom will escort his mom down the aisle.

I think you can do it either way. Sometimes the groomsmen walk down the aisle by themselves/in pairs, or escort the bridesmaids down the aisle. Sometimes, they just go stand up at the altar right before the processional begins. I think the second option is a good choice if you want a shorter processional.
It’s really up to you, and how you want the processional to look. If you can’t make a decision, though, I would just ask your priest what he prefers. My priest would have been happy to direct the processional if we didn’t have a plan already written up at the rehearsal. 🙂

I think it might look nicer if they escort a bridesmaid instead of walking down two by two.

In our processional (also a Catholic ceremony), the groomsmen escorted the bridesmaids, and the Maid/Matron of Honor walked on her own.

My processional, also Catholic, was exactly like Johnsbride09.
