So, this is something I’ve been thinking of lately- the mothers walk down the aisle. So far I have fiance walking his mother … where does his father go … behind? Confused, and than he comes back to take my mother down … my dad waits with me to walk me down. …
I have nobody to escort the mothers … and I know it’s very important.
Fiance said that he will do it … but he thinks he will look funny … I don’t think he will. It will be very special and the mothers will be honored.
What do the bees say about this?

My FI Will walk down by himself, I think. Then My FI’s parents will walk together. Since my Dad and my Step Dad are walking down the asile with me, that leaves my Mom alone. I don’t know what to do, there. Would it be weird to have my FBIL take her? Or Maybe have my Step Mom walk with her? Would that look weird, too? Gahhh! I guess I’m saying I’m not sure how it works, either!

i would ask a single male member of my family to walk the mum down, ie a brother, uncle or grandson of the MOB but im guessing they dont have to be part of the bridal party – just a warm body

I want my fiance’s parents to walk down together. It seems so weird that one of the groomsmen is supposed to walk her down while her husband trails behind. But everyone wants to do it the traditional way with him walking behind.

I like the concept of parents escorting each other…I know that it’s more traditional for an usher to bring in the Mom and the Dad to follow along, but I’ve always thought that it looked “off” somehow. I don’t know. Just my two cents.
We’ll have the parents walk down together…and anyone needing to seat a grandmother (we’ve got one) the Dad will walk Grandma in and then circle back around. While he’s circling around, another set of parents will walk in. Then Dad that escorted Grandma will walk down with his wife.
Does that sound too complicated?

At the wedding I was at last weekend, the usher took the arm of the mom or grandma and the dad or grandpa walked behind. I thought it looked awkward, so I know we’re just going to have our moms escorted by our dads.
