Mine was pretty traditional, however we had some small tweaks.  

Letseee… it went along the lines of….  Groom’s Mom & Nephew #1, Groom’s Dad & Nephew #2, My Mom & My Brother, Bridesmaid #1, Maid of Honor, My adorable flower girls, and then taaadaaaahhh… *trumpets blare*…. ME! 

My dad was waiting for me at the end of the aisle to do the “hand-off” to my groom.  It worked out really well!!    We basically decided the processional order the day before during the rehearsal, lol.   Somethings are just NOT worth stressing about!

I think we had a pretty traditional processional though I wanted the BMs and Groomsmen to walk out individually because they were walking down a short aisle to a 4-5 minute song (the parents and my grandma were also walking down to this song so I guess it worked out okay). Also the Darling Husband and best man wanted to walk down the aisle together but stupid wedding planner said no. I mean, who is paying who??

Mine is fairly normal/traditional:

The grooms parents will get escorted out, and then my little bro is escorting my mom.

Then the best man will walk with Fiance behind the pastor to the front. Then bridesmaids and groomsmen together, and my Maid/Matron of Honor will walk alone, sort of “leading” me in.

Differences, we aren’t having any flower girl or ring bearer, and I have both my dad and stepdad walking me up the aisle. 🙂

Mine will be pretty normal. Best man will walk my Maid/Matron of Honor though.
Also, not sure if we’ll have a flowergirl. My sister is TO-ed at me and is boycotting the wedding right now, so unlikly my niece will make it.
However, I was thinking of haveing my middle school girls that i teach at church walk down the isle. I love those ladies and they mean sooo much to me.
Yet to be determined

I plan to have my fiancé walk in (maybe with my mom?), his parents, the bridesmaids, then the flower girl and ringbearer. I’m last of course.

We haven’t really spoken about it, but I’ve given it a lot of thought. If FH wants to walk up the aisle too I’ll see if his parents (they’re divorced) want to walk him up there. I’ve paired each BM/GM with someone closest in age.

20yo Bridesmaid or Best Man – 18yo Groomsmen
21yo Bridesmaid or Best Man – 23yo Groomsmen
24yo Bridesmaid or Best Man – 27yo Groomsmen
30yo Bridesmaid or Best Man – 39yo Groomsmen
28yo Maid/Matron of Honor – 23yo Bridesmaid or Best Man

3yo Flower Girl – 5yo Ring Bearer
11yo Flower Girl – 1yo Ring Bearer

My grandfather – Me – FH’s stepdad

@inky_1:  Here’s how mine went:

Officiant
Groom
Parents of the Groom
Mother of the Bride & Grandmother of the Bride
Groomsman & Bridesmaid
Groomsman & Bridesmaid
Best Man & Maid of Honor
Bride & Bride’s Father

Pretty standard. It all worked out.

We’re having the GMs and BMs walk down together but otherwise it’s pretty traditional

@LemonLavender:  How is the groom getting there? My Fiance really wants to process and we’re trying to figure out a good way to do it

We’re doing a slight twist on tradition.  Family seating, with Future Mother-In-Law last to be seated (my mother has passed away) . Groomsmen enter from side door, groom last. 

Flower girls down the aisle first, then Ring Bearer, then Bridesmaid or Best Man, then MoH, then me (escorted by my brother and aunt).

I’m sending the Flower Girl & Ring Bearer first because they are very young (and very cute) and may have issues. My Bridesmaid or Best Man will be able to compensate for lost time/Timing issues. I also don’t want the little ones to panic being separated from their parents for too long in the little waiting room.

@luluvohn:  My Fiance doesn’t want to process so not a big deal. 

I did just go to a wedding where the parents were escorted to their seats and then the officiant and groom walked down.  It wasn’t a true processional but better than nothing.
