My hubby walked down the isle sorta. He walked his mother down during the seating of the parents and grandparents, then just stood there waiting. He didn’t have a song or anything though. Our officiant came in after the parents and walked down the isle. Some grooms just stand there the whole time I think and don’t walk at all, or come in through the side in back. If he really wants, then give him a song and let him walk :p You can really do anything you want. The two of you could even walk down together unless you were walking with your father.

It’s pretty much up to you.  A lot of ceremonies I’ve seen, the groom just goes up to the altar before the processional starts. 

My husband walked up the aisle, though, right before me.  Everyone else went down to one song, and then the music changed and my husband (escorted by both of his parents) walked down the aisle.  He hugged and kissed them, the music changed again, and I came down the aisle with both of my parents.  I thought it was kinda nice and it made the processional a little more symmetrical in my eyes.  πŸ™‚

Up to your Fiance, if it’s a catholic ceremony, it’s actually canonical for the groom as one of the last (e.g. just b4 the bride or with the bride) to walk down the aisle but nowadays, there are every variations imaginable….

I’ve been to weddings were the groom has "snuck" in on the side and I’ve been to weddings where the groom has come down the aisle with his parents. I think it should be whatever you guy prefer πŸ™‚

It’s really up to you.  In Jewish ceremonies the groom is escorted downt he aisle by both of his parents right before the bride is escorted down the aisle by both of her parents.

I don’t know. We’re having a small, Las Vegas Chapel ceremony, and I have no idea yet. I don’t know if Fiance should escort his mom and gram to their seats…with only 20 guests, does it matter? I don’t know.

I think moms often walk by themselves, or are escorted by a male relative or male bridal party member (son, grandson, brother, BIL, usher, etc…).

Our ceremony room had 2 doors, one at the front and one in the back.  Our guys came in from the front door, which happened to open into the room they were getting ready in.  They just walked in and then we started our processional.

My fiance insisted from the beginning that he wants to walk down the aisle. πŸ™‚ He will walk in with his Best Men – his big brothers. I think it will be cute.

My mom is being escorted to her seat by my dad, and then he will come back out to get me.
