Wedding Processional - What's Your Order?

Recommended Posts

What order are you using for your processional? I have 1 more groomsman than bridesmaid, so I don't really want them to walk down arm and arm. Is your groom seating the moms? Are his parents escorting him down? And how many songs?

Whew. So. Many. Questions.

I've been wondering about this myself. I have a male MOH and a best woman, so I'm not entirely sure how that will work. And my parents are divorced and my mother is remarried, so I imagine she'd get escorted down the aisle by her husband and my dad would just... sit? And where does the groom's mother fit in? She's big on tradition and a very emotional person, so I'm sure she'd like to be involved, even if we just send his parents down the aisle before the bridal party... so many decisions!

I also have no idea.

 

In my mind I had saw this - guests show up first, then groom and his men. They 'hang out' with everyone until we arrive and then usher everyone to their seats.  Groom will stand at the 'alter' by himself.  The ring bearer/flower girl will come down the isle (unless they go just before the bride??), then the groomsmen will escort the BM's down the isle, then me and my dad!

 

Honestly, I never thought about fiance escorting his mom!

I guess I should ask him/here what they think, but in all our discussions on this it hasn't come up!

 

I think you can do whatever you want - depending if you are traditional or not.

Yes. In all the weddings I have been to the flower girl and ring bearer always go before.. depends on the wedding I guess.

 

Funny story about that actually... we didn't have really any kids coming at first, but we wanted to include a few people. SO we totally asked our 18 year old nephew and our 30 year old friend to be the ring bearer & flower girl LOL. I can't wait to see peoples reactions. It's going to be funny.

LOL!! I think that's awesome and I can't wait to hear about it.

Will she toss petals for you?

I am actually really excited about this for my daughter... and love the petals on the isle!

My son is also the ring bearer. I wasn't sure if they were supposed to stand with the bridal party or sit down.  I can just see them fidgeting, picking their nose (ok not really), and getting restless so we chose to have them sit down when they get to the front.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
