Thoughts on processional order?
Hi, I could use some input on our processional order... Here's who we've got: grandmother of bride (divorced/single), mother of groom (recently widowed, also amicably divorced from FI's dad), father of groom, father of groom's long-term girlfriend (FI cares for her a lot but does not consider her a parental figure really), mother of bride (divorced/single), stepmother of bride. My dad is walking me down the aisle. Here's what I was thinking:
Officiant, groom & best man will enter through front side door & stand near altar
Grandmother of bride (escorted by a groomsman)
Mother of groom (escorted by a groomsman, or FI's dad, or FI)
FI's dad & his long-term girlfriend
Stepmother of bride (escorted by a groomsman or my dad)
Mother of bride (escorted by a groomsman or my brother)
Bridesmaids (one at a time, met halfway & escorted by groomsmen, other than MOH who will walk alone)
Flower girl & ring bearer
Does that sound okay from an etiquette standpoint? Also, couple questions. If FI's mom wants FI's dad to walk her down the aisle, where does that leave FI's dad's girlfriend? If FI's mom instead wants FI to walk her - does he just leave his post at the front and walk around to the back of the church to walk her, then head back up there? If either FI or a groomsman walks her down the aisle, would FI's dad process down the aisle (in this case, with his girlfriend) separately from FI's mom, and would that be before or after his mom? So many questions!
