our ushers walked the grandparents down.  and an usher walked my mom down (this usher was my brother!).  Then my Fiance walked down with both of his parents – one on each arm.  Followed by the Groomsmen paired up with the Bridesmaid or Best Man.  Then my dad walked me down.

My mom also wanted to absorb the moment of me walking down with my dad.  So it was important that she was already in her pew for that.

I don’t know what we will do with the grandparents. They are pretty slow, so they may not be a part of the processional. But if they decide they want to do it at the rehearsal, then they will walk down together if both grandparents are still living. We have two widowed grandmothers, who will be ushered by a male (probably a single male cousin on that side of the family).

I think my fiance’s parents will walk down together. I haven’t asked my parents what they want to do, but I figured my dad would walk my mom down the aisle and seat her and then wrap back around to walk me down the aisle. I don’t have any brothers, or else I would have a brother escort my mom like amariem25.

I’ve never seen or heard of the groom’s mom walking him down the aisle. Is she still married to his dad? Maybe she hasn’t thought about who will walk with him, but I suppose she could walk down with his dad and then wrap around to escort your fiance if she really wants to.

We’re completely skipping it.  Our parent’s will take their seats when the guests do (except my dad, cause he’ll be waiting to walk me).

You should p[robably tell Future Mother-In-Law what you’re planning so that she can absorb it before the big day.  I don’t see it as a huge deal though.
