I have never heard of that, but I would think that it would be easier to do both on the way up.  Really, both ways kind of break up the flow.

I have seen where the bride and groom, right before the vows, give a rose and a kiss to their moms.  They give their last kiss as a single person to the person that gave them their first kiss.  I always thought that was super sweet.

I think it might look a little odd.  And to be honest, I likely would have forgotten in the process.  When I walked down the aisle, I walked toward my husband and really hardly noticed anyone else.  If I had stopped to hand out roses to one or more people, it would have taken away from our moment.

During the ceremony, I gave my Mother-In-Law a single rose (not from my bouquet) and Darling Husband gave one to my mother. I like the way we did it. Doing it at different times seems odd to me, and on the way up the aisle I just wanted to get to my man. Haha.

I went to a wedding once where the flower girls gave a single rose to each mother and grandmother. ADORABLE! I will say… when I was walking down the aisle, I just wanted to get to the front of the church where my husband was, and I wouldn’t have wanted any “tasks” to do on the way there! Haha.

I gave my mum, my step-mom and my partner’s mom a rose before i joined my husband. I loved it! I didn’t feel rushed at all and i was very clear-headed. 

I just love the look on my dad’s face in this picture. He was so happy i included his wife! LOL

I really like the idea. I think it’s less important to worry about the “flow” of events and more important to think about how that gesture will matter to the people themselves.

At the weddings I been to which have all been Catholic ones, usually the couple hands a bouquet to each mother before putting at the statue of Mary. This is part of the tradition.

At my friend’s wedding  there was a part before the vows where the bride and groom each gave a rose to their parents and grandparents. It was really nice.

@LissaBell86: Yup. You can score some major brownie points with this. All three mothers were beaming and clinging to their roses after the ceremony. 

Look at my cute little mumsie! 

Good luck with your planning!
