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.
