Just wondering what everyone is doing or has done about the ceremony processional? Will you have the bridesmaids and groomsmen walk down the isle together or separate. I know usually on the exit they do walk together.

    We had an even number so we had bridesmaids and groomsmen walk up in pairs. Then we had the ring bearer and ring security and the flower girl and “here comes the bride” sign carrier.

    My plan is for the groom's side to already be at the front (I won't be there yet so I'm not all that bothered by how they get to their spots) and then the following:

    - MOB escorted to her seat probably by my brother

    - Bridesman, followed by bridesmaid, followed by MOH

    - Me and my dad


    On the way out::

    - Me and the new hubby

    - MOH and Bestman

    - Bridesman, bridemaid and groomsman

    Our fusion wedding of Indian and Civil. We did have a wedding party plus kids with flower baskets. We did as a pattern:
    2 flower kids
    Husband's side MOH & BM ( Best Man)
    2 flower kids
    My side MOH & BM
    Husband walked down with his aunt
    I walked down with my mom

    He can maybe do a reading or another part of the ceremony, that way it's a completely different role.

    Odd numbers (5 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen) and the fact that i think its weird to pair people together when they arent a couple.

    Annnd logistics. We got married at a local park. The guys were out chatting with guests and stuff before the ceremony so they just walked up from a field behind the seating area... My girls and i walked in over a bridge that was off to the right. So the different entrances would have made it very complicated to pair up.

    What influenced your decision to have the bridesmaid and groomsmen single file?

    I have to find a way to make my dad feel special as my one brother and my mom will most likely walk me down the isle. I tried to make it work that my mom and brother would walk me down half way and then my dad would walk the other half. But my mom doesn’t like that idea as she feels it’s then her giving me to my dad to give me away. My parents were never married and my mom I believe has a lot of anger towards my dad because of how he in a way didn’t show me enough love and attention growing up. My relationship with my dad has been rocky, but it’s been improving.

    The bridesmaids will go first because one of our groomsmen is also our officiant! We like the idea of him going down first and escorting a bridesmaid. This way he can take his place with my FH. The rest of the bridesmaids and groomsmen will walk, then MOH and best man, then a junior bridesmaid will escort the ring bearer.

    and then to exit it went:

    I was thinking of having all the men walk down separately (except the groom will walk his mom down? And then the bridesmaids all single file followed by me with either my mom and dad or ?? Idk if I am walking alone or with my dad or with both parents.... I've got some time to decide though seeing as how I am over a year away!

    We’re going to have each bridesmaid paired with a groomsmen. My MOH will walk with the bestman and my junior bridesmaid will escort the ring bearer. Then I’m walking down with my dad!
