Did/are your groomsmen walking in with the groom or did they walk down with the bridesmaids?
We’re having a very small intimate wedding (50 ppl) and the ceremony and reception are at the same place. We’re doing a first look at a friends home where I will be getting ready.
Just wondering if the bridesmaids should head to the venue at the same time as the groomsmen to greet guests, or if they should just come with me? I personally like the idea of the girls walking into the ceremony by themselves rather than with groomsmen.
How many songs in total did you have for your processional?
Groomsmen + Groom

artdeco: Our groomsmen did not walk in the processional. We did it the traditional way with the groomsmen coming in with the officiant and the groom as they entered from the side door at the front of the church.
The bridesmaids entered ahead of the bride, and were escorted out of the church by the groomsmen.

julies1949: That’s great. I don’t want the groomsmen walking down with the bridesmaids. I’d prefer them entering with the officiant and the groom. Did they enter with their own music?

artdeco: Not really. We had soft easy listening music playing, which switched to specific songs at the start of the bridesmaids processional.

Our Best Man wil enter with the Groom, but the other two Groomsmen are his two adult sons and they will be processing in a single file line along with my two kids and Matron of Honor. There is no right or wrong answer OP. Just do what feels right to you.
