we had ours walk the mothers up to the front, the mother proceeded to light the candles, met the ushers in front of the altar and then the mothers were ushered to their seats. Then the 2 guys came back down the aisle to where the rest of the bridal party was waiting and each guy walked down the aisle w/ a bridesmaid.

My husband actually ushered the mothers in.  That gave the wedding a real "Officially starting" feel.  I know typically the groom enters from some side-door or something, but that worked out really nicely for us and didn’t make my husband feel like he was just standing there forever waiting for the wedding to start.  From there, you could have the groomsmen enter from the side, or escort the bridesmaids in.

The groom doesnt typically walk down the aisle I dont think… he comes in from some side entrance (or from the side) and is the first person up at the altar before the festivities begin.

As the groom I’d feel uncomfortable walking up the aisle by myself… thats why my Fiance walked our mothers up.  See what your Fiance thinks… if he is comfortable walking up the aisle by himself then you should go for it!

My husband walked both mothers… we had the situation where my groom’s father was remarried, so it worked out to where my Father-In-Law walked with my Step Mother-In-Law, right after the groom and both mothers.

Do you have a sister or brother that is not in the wedding party?  Or a guest of honor, like a grandmother/grandfather that could walk with him?
