Talk to me about your processional!

Hey everyone!

What is your processional order? Are you having the parents walk down the aisle as part of the processional? Will your groomsmen/best man already be at the front? Are your bridesmaids walking in individually or with the groomsmen?

I would love to hear all about your processional!

    We haven't completely settled on an order but we are leaning towards FH walking the moms, groomsmen, BM, JB, MOH, ring bearer and flower girl, then my dad and myself.

    Officiant walked down first to announce to silence phones
    Then grooms parents
    My brother and his wife
    My parentsBridal party and grooms party

    I had my brother and his wife walk down too to acknowledge that they're a part of the wedding party but not necessarily a bridesmaid and groomsmen. And i opted for no kids at the ceremony.

    We only have a BM and MOH. So, the BM will be at the altar with my FH. The MOH will walk first, then her daughter the flower girl. That's it!

    Both sets of grandparents were escorted in by ushers. Then my husband escorted his mom and dad, then my mom escorted by my brother, then the groomsmen came down the stairs in a line, each bridesmaid descended the stairs individually met up with her groomsman and finished the aisle walk together finishing with MOH and BM. Then my dad descended the stairs and waited for me, I came down almost fell and then met up with my dad and walked down the aisle!

    My processional was:

    Stepdaughter as the candle lighter

    Groom's parents (no bride's parents)

    Pastor, groom and groomsman came in from the side

    3 bridesmaids individually

    2 flower girls individually

    We will not walk parents or grandparents down the aisle because most of them are part of our wedding party. Our processional is how we want it and not according to tradition.

    Officiant (FIL) welcomes everyone and asks them to silence/put away their phones
    Best Man (FOB)
    Matron of Honor (MOB)
    Maid of Honor
    Flower Girls
    Bride & Grandfather

    I believe my FH's brother (groomsman) and his BM will be walking the mothers down then will stand by FH. Then our JGM & JBM, the other 3 GM will walk with my 3 BMs, my MOH will walk by herself, FG & RB, then me and my father.

    My SIL made a suggestion about moving the flower girl in front of the maid of honor or in front of the bridesmaids. Someone had suggested it when she married my brother because sometimes people are wrapped up in adoring the kids and it could take away from the bride. So ours is:
    FIrst, groomsmen will assist guests to their seats and take their places up front. FH will walk his grandma in and take his place.
    His dad and stepmom
    His mom and stepdad
    My mom escorted by my uncles
    flower girls
    Me, escorted by my nieces (and yes, I totally see how this defeats the purpose of moving the other kids forward in the processional).

    Ours was
    Priest, groom and groomsmen entered from side.

    BIL & Groom's Godmother presenting the icons
    Bride's mom escorted by bride's brother
    Groom's mom and dad
    Matron of Honor
    Bride and father

    We were going to have my grandparents go before my mom and brother but grandma was having shoe issues lol
    And yes, we did the bridesmaids backwards because that's what the priest wanted us to do.
