The Wedding Processional Order
There are various options on how the wedding processional order should go. But rememeber, it’s your wedding and at the end of the day, you are the one who needs to be happy with what you have created. So, whether you choose to have a traditional religious ceremony in a church or a non- traditional ceremony in a reception hall or on a beach in Hawaii, most weddings will have a processional. These days, people have many important people in their lives that they want to inclue in their wedding. You may want to be given away by your sons or walked down the aisle by you biological father and step father… it’s is your choice to decide how you want this to flow. As long as you are happy with it, thats all that counts.
Below, we have included a traditional Christian processional order, used commonly at LeSoiree, for you to use as a guide. But, again, remember to be creative and think outside the box.
