Neither Darling Husband or I had a religious affiliation or model to follow, so we kind of just went with the Norm. Though because we had 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man 5 Groomsmen and 1 officiant who was Groomsmen #6 it ended up a little different as well! Here’swhat we did:

  1. MOG and FOG
  2. MOB escorted by my sister (BM #6)
  3. Groom & Officiant (GM #6)
  4. Entrance of 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man escorted by 5 Groomsmen
  5. Bride escorted by FOB

Hope this helps!

I guess I never realized that the parents were supposed to be part of the processional? They aren’t in our wedding.

I think we’re doing:

– Officiant
– Groom
– 4 BMs/GMs
– Maid/Matron of Honor and best man
– ME

Oops I hadn’t even really thought about this other than what order each bridesmaid goes in. I’m going to have to use this page for suggestions! Thanks OP! lol

We have an uneven number of groomsmen and bridesmaids, so we’re doing it a little differently–

1. Officiant, best man, and 3 groomsmen will enter from the side and take their places at the front.

2. Groom with parents process down the aisle

3. Grandmothers with ushers process

4. 5 Bridesmaids, followed by Maid/Matron of Honor, and then kids (2FGs, 1 RB)

5. Me with both of my parents. 


For the recessional, 2 of the groomsman will each escort 2 bridesmaids (a lady on each arm)
