I'm not a detail person. I get overwhelmed by them and I like to look at the big picture. Unfortunately, wedding planning is ALL.ABOUT.DETAILS. Especially two months out. So, a few questions about the processional:
We have a daughter. She will be 20 months when we get married. She is full of spirit, sass, and wiggles. The only part we really wanted her to play in the wedding was walking FI down the aisle, and then she will sit with FI's parents for the ceremony. That's also about all we think she'll handle appropriately. There are no other children in the wedding party
We have an uneven party (horrors!) so one BM will walk with two GM
We're getting married in a Catholic ceremony
This is the order we wanted:
FI and daughter
BM and GM x6
MOH and BM
Me and my parents
Now Google tells me I'm doing it wrong, and that the priests, FI, and the BM should already be on the alter.
Does that mean my MOH has to walk alone? I really don't think she'd like that - she's a bit shy. She's our daughter's godmother and the BM is godfather so they already know and like each other and I think she'd prefer to walk with him.
Who will walk DD down if FI is already up there? I know this isn't a common issue in Catholic weddings, but it was something FI was looking forward to. He thinks he can walk him and someday he'll walk her.
FI has two (widowed) grandmothers, I have two (widowed) grandfathers, although one is remarried. Do our grandparents process? Does someone need to escort them? The grandmothers are both in pretty good health, but both my grandfathers and my grandfathers wife may need some help. Who would do that? Do they need to be listed in the program? Do they need to come to the rehearsal?
I'm so frazzled. I'm facepalming myself and suggesting elopement.
