wedding precession??
What is the order of the wedding precession? Does the ring bearer and flower girl go first, followed by wedding party ? Or do they go after the wedding party, right before the bride? What about the mothers, when do they walk and with who?

From providing music for the ceremony this is what I have experienced.
1)Ushers escort mom and grooms parents to their seats.
2)Officiant, groom and groomsmen all approach the alter.
3)Bridesmaids walk down isle seperatly next.
4)Ring bearer walks down the isle
5)Flower girl the walks down the isle.
6)Then the bride is escorted down the isle.
Sometimes I have seen the ring bearer and flower girl walk down before the bridesmaids.
Good Luck!

YOU CAN ALSO HAVE THE GROOMSMEN WALK DOWN THE AISLE WITH THE BRIDESMAIDS. BUT ALMOST UNIFORMLY, THE MAID OF HONOR WALKS DOWN BY HERSELF NEXT TO LAST (THE BEST MAN IS ALREADY STANDING UP FRONT WITH THE GROOM), THEN THE FLOWER GIRL (WHO FLOWERS YOUR PATH), THEN YOU AS THE BRIDE.

I honestly thinks that it depends on what works best for you. I have been to several weddings and they have never been the same.

Wedding processionals mainly begin with the bridal party, the bridesmaid and groomsman that stand furthest away from the bride go first, then the next few, then the maid of honor, then the flower girl and ring bearer and then the bride with her father, or special person that is giving her away. The majority of the time the bride is on the left hand side of the person giving her away.

There is 2 different ways in which you can have your wedding processional.

If the groomsmen will be up front with the groom you will have it as follows:

Minister,Groom and Groomsmen come forward to signify the start of the ceremony.

Ushers will escort Grandmothers 1st and then the Moms.

Bridesmaids

Maid of Honor

Ring Bearer

Flower Girl

Now The Bride and her Father

The second way you can have this done is by having the groomsmen walking your bridesmaids down the aisle. So to signify the start of the ceremony The Minister, Groom and his Best Man will stand at the front and your maid of honor will walk alone.
