What is a Wedding Processional?
The wedding processional signifies the start of the ceremony when everyone walks down the aisle. The processional may include the officiant, the wedding party, parents, grandparents, the flower girl and ring bearer, the couple of honor, and whoever else the couple wishes to include.
If you're looking to make your wedding processional special, here are some unique processional ideas!

Walking down the aisle together is a trend that we are here for. Bryan met Heather halfway up the aisle and they walked the rest of the way together. Heather's father passed a year prior, so this was such a sweet, memorable moment for everyone.
