I don’t think its a big deal. What candle are they lighting and why are your parents first? I’d think the groom’s parents would be first, where he could escort them and then stand to the side…then your parents and the rest of the processional…

My SIL walked up and greeted his Mom and walked them to their seats, then went to the gazebo and stood and waited.

I think its a nice idea, but why don’t they go before your parents? It sounds like a nice photo. 🙂

I think it’s sweet and I think my Future Mother-In-Law will want the same thing for her only child my Fiance.

It’s not something I would get bent out of shape about.

Darling Husband walked with the officiant and his mom was escorted by her husband. Father-In-Law excorted step-mother in law. Normally I would tell her to suck it up, it complicates things, but if your Fiance wants to do it for his mom let him and just have him step over to the side when they light the candle and then after they get to their seats he could take his place at the alter.

It seems like a big deal to your Mother-In-Law, so I would just let it go.  I think it seems like a nice moment for IL to remember.  I agree though that they should go first.  I don’t think anybody is supposed to be seated after the MOB.

it’ll all work out fine. we had a non mass catholic ceremony and Darling Husband (not a catholic) walked his mom & stepmom down the aisle at the same time and didn’t have any problem so your FH can handle walking one mom down. your church coordinator will help you with the logistics, don’t stress about it!

In the grand scheme of things its not that big of a deal. Dont let it ruin your day. If that is what will make her happy and keep her happy just do it so there is no drama 🙂 Although I dont get why his parents just cant walk down the aisle together..

My Uncle in a Catholic mass Ceremony in the late 70’s or 80’s was escorted down the ailse by both his parents (my grandparents).

I don’t think it’s a big deal. I can’t even remember how my husband got into our wedding (I was still in the bridal suite and that point and I didn’t see it). I think he walked in with the priest?!? If it would mean a lot to your Mother-In-Law then I’d say let it happen. 🙂
