I am not sure if this will help you or not, but this link talks about some of the traditions, including a little blurb about the ceremony

I also googled mexican wedding ceremony processional and got this link that may or may not help you. There is a lot of information that also might help you wedding ceremony processional&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

In a Catholic ceremony (which many Mexican weddings are), the priest & the cross walk down first, followed by the men, then the women, then the fg, then the bride and her father/escort.
In a protestant wedding, the pastor & men either enter from the side or up the aisle, the women process up the aisle, then the fg, then the bride and her father/escort.

The best advise would be to ask your Priest, as there is no one specific answer. Generally the Priest or (as suggested previously) the Priest and the Cross walk down center aisle.

Thereafter the Groom and Best Man enter, followed by the four or fewer sets of Padrinos (Bible, Coins, Cord and kneeling pillow). The Padrinos de Biblia going first, followed by Arras, Lazo, etc. Then the Mother of the bride with her escort followed by the Mother of the Groom and her escort. (I have also seen this reversed with the Bride's Mother to walk in last.

Then the Bridesmaids followed by the Maid of Honor, Ring Bearer then Flower Girl (or Ring Bearer and Flower Girl walk together). Note: The Grooms men may escort Bridesmaids, except MOH.

Lastly, the Bride and Bride's Father/Escort.

If there are grandparents, they would enter following the last set of Padrinos.

Again, check with your Priest.

My best to you,
