Ok, so here is the deal. FH parents are divorced, his dad is remarried. I always thought that normally the mothers were the last to be seated b/c they would usually light a candle for the unity candle. We are not having a unity candle (we are doing unity sand). He wants to walk his mom down the aisle, but is afraid that if his dad and stepmom get seated ahead of his mom it may upset her that his dad went before she did. Now what?

He could walk his mother down the aisle and have her seated. After their walk he could have his father walk his stepmother down the aisle, then the grandmothers or other women of importance.

Isn’t that the correct way anwyays? When are you seating the MOB?
We were going to have the grandmothers seated, then the MOG and then the MOB. I thought the person of "most importance" seats last… similar to the processional, BM’s, then MOH then Bride?
Am I wrong?

I’m with lara bee – most important last, same as processional.

That’s what I said also..but he’s afraid she won’t see it that way. My mom is deceased so his mom will be the only one seated. I think I’m going to have it that way b/c he is going to take his place at the altar after he seats his mother and he can’t be standing up there while his dad, etc walks down.

Why can’t he be standing up there when his dad walks down? It’s really up to you. If you think it’s going to cause drama, have his mom be the first one to enter, with the groom, she sits down, and he goes to stand at the front for the remainder of the processional. Many times, the groom is already standing at the front, with the offiiant, so it’s not that uncommon to have him there while honored guests are being seated.
