you can do whatever you want.  some people walk down in pairs, others walk down alone.

we are sending in groom and his mother,

all groomsman alone, (4)

all bridesmaids alone (3)


bride and mom

we are going to be playing instrumental music, haven’t decided exactly what yet, or just ask our DJ to play romantic instrumental music.  you just want music while everyone walks down.  once the ceremony starts, the music stops.  then you want some music for the recessional.  but that will be a much shorter time.

Your order sounds just fine.  I’ve been a bridesmaid 5 times, of which 2 I walked with a groomsman and 3 all the bridesmaids walked alone.  There really is no standard, whatever you like.  This is our order:


My paternal grandmother with escort (maybe my brother), followed by grandfather alone

My maternal grandmother with escort (maybe an uncle), (no grandfather)

[FI has no grandparents left]

His mother with his dad


Groom with best man

Bridesmaids/Groomsmen – I haven’t decided on this one (walk together or alone)

Maid/Matron of Honor (which is my mother, hence you don’t see her earlier)

Me with dad

I’m using one song (instrumental of Only Time by Enya) for the grandmothers, mother, officiant, groom, and best man walks).  I’m using another (instrumental of Slipping Through my Fingers by Abba) for the bridesmaids and Maid/Matron of Honor.  Then one for me (instrumental of A Moment Like This by Kelly Clarkson).  You do need some sort of transition between the bridal party and you, to denote to your guests that this is the big moment.  We are then using an insturmental version of Colbie Calliat’s Brighter than the Sun for our recessional, something peppy we can sorta bounce back up the aisle to.  Hope this helps!
