Yes, my Fiance is actually walking down the aisle with his parents, follwed by my mom (and brother), the flower girl/ring bearer, bridesmaids and finally me and my dad.

Most of the weddings I have been too, the groom’s parents are usually the first down the aisle (while the groom and men are at the front).

We’re having his parents walk in first, I asked Fiance if he wanted to walk in with them but he thought that was “weird”

We did.

Hubby’s parents are divorced, mom is remarried, he has one sister.  His mom and stepfather escorted each other first, followed by my mom and my brother (my sister was in the bridal party), then his dad and his sister.  Once they were seated we started the actual wedding party.

We’re having his mother be first for the processional (his dad isn’t coming), followed by my parents, and then my son is walking me down the aisle.  I think you typically DO include both families in the processional.

His parents are actually divorced, and both remarried. Yes, they will be walking down, probably with each other if that’s acceptable. We haven’t actually planned that part out yet, I’m kind of just waiting for the rehearsal or close to it to think that deeply : )

I’m still undecided about this but I was thinking of having his mom and my mom walk down together and then go ahead and light the unity candles

I always thought it was pretty standard to have the groom’s parents walk down together. I still have to figure out who will be walking with my mom though, since dad is walking me down and my brother is a Groomsmen.

@Wonderstruck: My brothers a Groomsmen and we’re still having him walk in with my mom. He’ll just line up at the end after he drops her off.

Yes. FI’s parents are walking him downt he aisle first.  Then the rest of the bridal party and I’ll be escorted by both my parents last.

@Miss Smurf:

I’m doing the same.  FI is an only child, so I thought it would be cute if they could walk their son down the aisle.  Plus I just went to a wedding that did this and it was great.  The grooms parents even hugged him as they went to sit down.  I love fuzzy, warm weddings like this.

DHs parents walked with him down the aisle. They are Jewish and typically Jewish parents walk their daughter down the aisle, but his parents wanted to do it with their son too.

@Meowkers: That would be a good idea but I already have more Groomsmen than I do BMs, so I don’t know how I’d ever get them all down the aisle paired together if I did that.

His parents walked him down the aisle.
