As same-sex couples prepare for their wedding ceremonies, the question often arises about the processional. Traditionally, a groom may enter from the side while a bride may walk down a center aisle. But what if there are two brides or two grooms? Who walks where and when?
A recent trend involves creating two aisles for the couple to process down simultaneously.
If you are marrying in an outdoor space with lots of room to play with, the two partners could walk in from the sides to meet in the middle.
Or, create two sections of chairs rather than two, creating two aisles from back to front.
If escorts will be walking the couple down the aisle(s), consider having an extra-wide aisle for both pairs to walk down together. This is a great symbol of families uniting together.
The great thing about personalizing your wedding ceremony is that it can be a true reflection of your relationship. There are no strict rules - get creative!
