Jewish Weddings

any Jewish traditions for order of processional?

Getting down to the last details now that I'm less than 3 weeks out.  We're coming up with the order of the procesional now.  Are there any traditions of if the groom comes out before groomsmen, etc?

We're thinking of having
Cantor
grandparents
groomsmen (individually)
groom w/parents
bridesmaids (individually)
ring bearer & flower girl
MOH
bride w/parents

Does that look ok?

    In my mind, I always thought that flower girls should come down right before the bride because, in theory, they are laying a bed of flower petals for the bride to walk on.  But, your order seems just fine, too!

    I don't have it with me right now, but Amy Vanderbilt's Complete Guide to Etiquette lays out the order for a Jewish wedding processional. It's pretty common in libraries and available on google books.

    Our rabbi told us to do the following order:
    Rabbi
    Grandparents
    Groomsmen with Bridesmaids
    Groom with parents
    Bride with parents

    I originally had the groom before the groomsmen and he gave me a funny look about doing that.

    I did it exactly the way you did it, minus a ring bearer and grandparents, and I had a rabbi but no cantor.  I don't think there's any wrong or right way to do it, but looking at a book for ideas is also good.  I used the book The New Jewish Wedding by Anita Diamant as a guide.
