How is everyone doing their "ceremony". I was thinking about this but I was wondering if the grandparents should just walk in when they get there instead of right before the mother's. I don't have any men left in my family so my mom and FMIL is walking in together.
grandparents, each grandmother with an usher and grandfather walks behind?
then mother's, unity candle.
bridal party, each ushered by a groomsmen
AND when would the groom and BM enter the room? before the grandparents?

Well this is tentatively how we are going to do the procession, I'm still not really sure if this is exactly how it will go but we'll figure it all out at the rehearsal.
My grandpa will be seated already and then in will come the mothers ushered by each of our 2 ushers.
Then my FH and the groomsmen will enter through a side door up near the altar and wait on the floor, then proceeds:
to meet the groomsmen on the floor
Then the 2 ring bearers & flowergirl (my flowergirl is only a year and a half so the boys are going to walk her up the aisle, one carrying the pillow and the other holding her hand and helping her throw the petals (if she doesn't just dump them all out in one spot, lol) OR my MOH may walk up with her and help her throw the petals then.
Then the MOH either by herself or holding the flowergirl's hand (if we decide to go that route)
-with Canon in D playing throughout the whole thing up until I walk in.-
Then Trumpet Voluntary will begin playing and I will walk in with my dad, meet my FH and then the pastor will say "Who gives this woman to be married, etc etc" and my dad responds with "her mother and I, etc" then he will give me to my FH and my dad will sit down, and then all of us will all walk up the 5 stairs or to the altar, and each person in the bridal party will stand on a step.
Then after the ceremony, the bridesmaids will each be ushered out by a groomsmen.
Our pastor suggested each bridesmaid walking in with a groomsmen but we liked the idea of my FH and the guys coming out of a side door near the altar.
I've seen weddings before where the groom ushers in his mom when the moms are walking out and then waits at the altar, that might be an idea too.

My FH an groomsmen and pastor are walking out from the opposite side.
Then grandparents, each grandmother with an usher and grandfather walking behind.
Then mother's, doing sand ceremony.
Then bridesmaids, by theirselves.
Then me an my pop.
