Jewish Weddings

Order of Processional

What is the order of processional in Jewish wedding?
I am getting different responses from different sources.
I understand there is no "law", but what is the tradition?

Thank you!

    We did:

    His grandfather
    My grandparents
    His stepfamily (both his parents are remarried to people who have kids from a previous marriage, so we had the step-parents each walk with their kids)
    Groomsmen and Bridesmaids (traditionally they walk separately, but we had them walk together)
    Best Man
    Groom's Parents and Groom
    Maid of Honor
    Bride's Parents and Bride

    Basically, my advice would be to do whatever feels best to you.  Everyone's wedding party and family are different, so what worked for other people may not work for you and vice versa.  Like you said, there's no "law" of how to do it, so however you decide to do it is totally acceptable! Smile
