Understanding Your Wedding Processional Order

Planning for your wedding day means learning a lot about traditions and practices you may never have known before. One common question we get is what the proper processional order is for the ceremony. Let us start by saying, this can be impacted by several things like your religious affiliations and venue. It is best to talk with your venue or officiant prior to your wedding day.

Are you having a traditional or religious ceremony? If you are, each religion typically has its own unique guidelines. Plan on discussing this beforehand with your officiant to learn what your specific religious tradition is. Your officiant will be the expert on this, and they’ll also be able to help you customize it where you are able to.

For a Traditional (Christian) Wedding Ceremony

Grandparents: Traditionally, if you’re wanting to honor your grandparents they will enter first.

Groom’s Parents: It’s up to you if you want to honor the groom’s parents by having them walk down the aisle. They can be seated after all the guests and before the mother of the bride.

Mother of the Bride: The mother of the bride is the last person seated before the officiant, groom and best man take their places at the altar. She can walk alone or be escorted by her son, son-in-law or another relative. She is seated on the left side in the first row.

Officiant, Groom & Best Man: Enter the ceremony venue and stand at the altar.

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen: Walk down the aisle in pairs. You can also have them enter individually if you prefer.

Maid/Matron of Honor: Walks down the aisle alone.

The Ring Bearer(s) and Flower Girl(s): Your little ones can either walk together or the ring bearer can enter before the flower girl(s).

The Bride and Father of the Bride: The bride walks on her father’s right side, traditionally.

If you are not having a religious ceremony or are getting married at a non-church venue, feel free to take what you like and change what you don’t. Ultimately, your wedding day is up to you. In the end, you’re getting married and that is what matters the most.

Updated: Mar 7, 2020

January marked the beginning of a new year, new decade, and new style of wedding. And we’ve never been more excited! As couples begin planning their perfect day and peak wedding season quickly approaches there are a few trends that we can be sure to see in 2020.

  • Showing off the bridal party’s unique style and personality. The days of your girls in matching, ill-fitting dresses that scream “BRIDESMAID” are GONE. These days, we're seeing a new wave of unique and personalized styles that give your bridesmaids the chance to feel comfortable, and look beautiful. These are the girls you love the most! Each of them is different, so let their dresses represent that! Our personal favorite for spring and summer weddings is an all white bridal party! Which also looks amazing for our second trend of 2020… bright, beautiful and locally grown flowers!

  • The whimsical bouquet has become the norm for weddings over the past couple years. But the movement has shifted from a soft, muted, blush and cream palate and we’re now seeing bright beautiful blooms filling the bouquets of our 2020 brides! Whether you choose flowers that are meaningful to your relationship, spark memories of summers spent outdoors, or just love the pop of color, these arrangements are sure to bring excitement and splendor to your perfect day!

  • Locally sourced and sustainable options. Along with the bright floral arrangements we’re also seeing couples opt for locally grown and in season flowers! What a beautiful testament for the love of the area you’ve chosen for your wedding. Flowers aren’t the only locally sourced options to enjoy. Farm to table food makes for a fresh, delicious and memorable menu that your guests are sure to enjoy! Favors (and flavors) from the local area- apples, peaches, homemade jams, or soaps made at a local farm are all wonderful favors that your guests will actually enjoy! They add a special touch to your wedding and are a beautiful way to say thank you to guests and pay homage to resources in your area.

  • Incorporate meaningful and fun aspects into your wedding! It can be a favorite song while you walk down the aisle, a special aspect in your ceremony, like taking communion, handfasting or having a guest read a beloved poem.  Pick a signature drink for cocktail hour, or sneak in your favorite hors d’oeuvres. During the reception, invite guests to join you in a fun dance, or pass your rings around and ask for blessings from your guests. Remember, this day is about you as a couple! Invite the people you love the most, and enjoy those precious moments as they come to celebrate and support you as you begin your life together as Mr. and Mrs.

  • Most importantly, your wedding day should be your own! Often times brides get bogged down with feeling like they need to check every box on the traditional list of wedding to-dos. Or worse, they need to please or change their dream to fulfill the desires of loved ones and friends. Please don’t! Your wedding day is meant for celebrating the beautiful love between you and your partner! Out of everyone in the entire universe, you found each other! You’ve spent time growing, learning and falling deeply in love with one another! Your relationship is unique, and precious and your wedding should be a radiant display of who you are and what your love means.
