So I think having my fiance walks his mother down the aisle is super cute and sweet. His parents aren't together, his father can walk down with his long-term girlfriend, so it's not like he's going to get left out. The thing is usually the mother of the bride is last to be sat, correct? But having her come in after the groom seems weird, or is it just me? Here is the order I'm thinking: - grandparents - groom's dad and "step-mom"- my mom escorting by my brother- groom and his mom- wedding party- me and my dad
The order can be totally customized! In case having examples helps, the way we did it at my wedding was the groomsmen and officiant came out first from a different angle, then my father in law walked down the aisle with his mother first, then my mom with my brother, then my husband with his mom, followed by the bridesmaids, flower girl, and me. It worked out very nicely.
Processional orders are whatever you want. I'm not having any parents or grandparents in the processional (other than my dad, who is obviously my escort). It would be too many people and there will only be 60 people at my ceremony, so having 25 in the processional is ridiculous.
