It’s hard to pick just one favorite part of a wedding ceremony—aside from the kiss, the moment we love most is the bride’s grand entrance and walk down the aisle. But before she takes her first step, there are some pretty important people to kick off the ceremony processional.

So, who goes first? Our friends at BRIDES magazine shared their “Ultimate Guide to the Wedding Processional Order” and we just had to pass it along to you. Peek inside their guide…

The Bride’s Mother: The mother of the bride’s entrance signals that the processional is about to begin. Once she reaches the end of the aisle, she takes her seat to the left of the aisle in the first row. (In Jewish ceremonies, she and the bride’s father escort their daughter down the aisle together.)

The Groom: After the mother of the bride takes her seat, the groom will traditionally take his place at the head of the altar (coming in from the side of the venue). However, many couples these days choose to have the groom’s parents escort him down the aisle (then, his parents would sit to the right of the aisle in the front row).

The Best Man: The best man either walks in from the side and takes his place at the altar next to the groom, or he can walk in as the last groomsman. He may also hold the bride’s ring (or both rings).

The Groomsmen: The groomsmen open the processional as they walk down the aisle one by one. Some couples also choose to have the groomsmen and bridesmaid walk in together arm-in-arm.

The Bridesmaids: During the processional, the bridesmaids walk down the aisle before the maid or matron of honor.

The Maid or Matron of Honor: Before the ceremony, the maid (or matron) of honor assists the bride with her dress, veil, and train, making sure everything looks perfect before she walks down the aisle. She then stands by the bride’s side at the altar and holds her bouquet and sometimes the groom’s ring.

The Flower Girl(s) and Ring Bearer(s): The ring bearer and flower girl precede the bride down the aisle. Traditionally, the ring bearer carries the wedding rings (or decoys, if he’s too little to be trusted with the real things), tied to a small pillow. The flower girl may carry a basket of petals, which she scatters as she walks, or a posy of flowers. After the procession is over and the rings are handed off to the best man, the children’s work is done, and they can be seated with their parents.

The Father of the Bride and the Bride: The bride’s father traditionally escorts his daughter down the aisle, standing to her right. After he “gives her away” to the groom, he lifts her veil and kisses her, signifying his blessing, then takes his seat beside the bride’s mother.

You’re engaged… Congratulations! Now it’s time to start planning.

The Breakers’ destination wedding team is often asked if we recommend hiring a planner to help coordinate your wedding. This is an important decision, so we have compiled a list with our top five reasons why hiring a wedding or event planner is a great choice.

5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

1. Skilled Pros: Planning a wedding or event can be a full time job. From researching vendors, taking care of the details, and brainstorming creative ways to make your celebration amazing, a planner will save you hours of legwork. A professional keeps you updated, makes detailed itineraries for all involved—including other vendors—and assures you that everything will happen on time and on schedule. They will flawlessly execute your event.

2. Expert Advice: Your planner channels your tastes, taking into consideration your style and personality. They make sure that your special day surpasses all expectations and work directly with us to turn your dreams into a reality. Most importantly, your planner can offer ideas and etiquette tips along the way.

3. Loyal Partners: Great planners have built outstanding relationships with vendors in all categories. In turn, these creative partners want to work with professional planners because they know the event is going to run smoothly. You are assured to get the best prices from the finest, most reliable vendors in the industry.

4. Just in Case: A planner is educated in handling situations that involve any unforeseen circumstances relating to your event day with grace and ease. Their goal is to go above and beyond, and to devise solutions to make your day perfect, no matter what it takes.

5. In the Know: A savvy wedding planner will keep up with all the latest industry trends and stay ahead of the curve. They have the ability to suggest out of the box ideas that will add personalization and a “wow” factor to your event.
