We’re getting married outside in a park. There’s a long set of stairs that we are going to walk down to get to the aisle. Since my dad is deceased, I was planning on having my mom walk me down the staircase and to the beggining of the aisle, where my fiance would be waiting and him and I would walk down the aisle together. My question is, what does my mom do after she “gives me” to my fiance? I know she wants to see us walk down the aisle, but I think it would be weird if she walks down the aisle to the front row right before we do. I can’t have her sit in the last row either. The only thing I can think of is she goes around the outside of all the rows and sits up front, but then we have to pause and wait for her to do that before we walk, which isn’t ideal. I love the idea of having her walk me to him, but I can’t figure out the logistics of it. Any suggestions?

Leah257: Would it be possible to walk with both of them down the aisle and have her sit when she gets to the front row? My brother was walked down by my mom and dad. I thought it was cute. I know it’s not traditional, but it’s an idea.

This was a possible scenario for me as well. (Mom has since decided that she is emotionally up for the whole walk) Is there someone who could be waiting to escort your mom when she reaches the top of the aisle? Had we gone this way, one of my cousins would have joined my mom so she wasn’t alone and then we would have followed.

MechEBee: Thanks for your response! I like that idea, but I always envisioned just him and I walking down the aisle together, hand in hand.
pinksandals: This is probably what’s going to have to happen. My brother is an usher, so I might have him walk her to her seat. I just don’t know if it will be odd to have her and him walk down the aisle together right before the bride and groom.
