Dealing with Divorced Parents for the Processional

As I head into the last two weeks before a clients Newport, RI wedding I am now putting together a processional plan.  My client has a small number of attendants- three maids, three groomsmen- but we have three sets of parents due to a divorce and remarriage. The ceremony will be at the King Park Gazebo, in Newport, RI which has a semi-circular aisle and offers a few optons for processing and recessing.
In case you have a similar situation with divorced parents in your wedding party, here is a brief snapshot of the processional:
The bride will have her mother and stepfather, her father and stepmother, and her fiance's parents walking down the aisle.
The grooms parents would walk down the aisle first, followed by her father's wife and an escort.  The entrance of the mother of the bride always signals that the wedding is about to start; in this case she will be escorted by her husband (my clients stepfather).  The bridesmaids then would process either walking alone or partnered with a groomsman; they can be in any order the bride wishes ( shortest to tallest is often used) with the Maid/Matron of Honor walking last.  If there are any ringbearers/flower girls they would walk next, right before the entrance of the bride and her escort.
Hope this helps!

If you follow a few simple steps, you will find that the essay almost writes itself. You will be responsible only for supplying ideas, which are the important part of the essay anyway. !!

When you go for this way, make sure to use good quality products because in the places where many people are gathered and different machinery is being used, there could be disturbance in the communicating object and you can’t afford to use a noisy object in such event.
