hssweethearts2013 :  My parents walked me down the aisle. That was my preference from the time I got engaged. I was close to both of them and I wanted them to both have that honor. Logistically, it was a non-issue because we got married outside, so we just stood how we would walking and they marked where the chairs should go from that so the aisle was wide enough.

Mom and dad will walk me. It’s a tradition in Jewish culture to have both parents walk both the bride and groom down the isle.

Both my parents walked me down the aisle! We’re very tight knit and it was the only thing that made sense for us 🙂 My dad held my arm, and my mom walked beside us! Wouldn’t have had it any other way!

teacher-bee-in-the-sea :  Thanks, I was!! Right around the time that picture was taken I was saying to my parents, “Is it normal that I’m not nervous, that I’m just SO HAPPY?!”

My cousin had her biological dad and step-dad walk her down the aisle. It was a very sweet gesture on her part because both men played important roles in her life and she didn’t want either one to feel excluded. Her bio dad was on her right side and her step-dad was on her left side, their arms were locked, and she held her bouquet in the middle.

hssweethearts2013 :  I haven’t done this, but have been to a few weddings where it has happened. I always thought it was very sweet and eliminated having to choose anyone. I don’t think I have any pics though. The only extra consideration I would keep in mind is to make sure the aisle is plenty wide for three people 🙂

I had my dad and step dad walk with me! I just made sure to tell the venue coordinator so they could set up a wide-enough aisle.

panda_bear3 :  Can I ask – did they wear the same suit? Did you make anything different between the two suits?

My best friend’s parents divorced and remarried when she was very young. She had both her bio and step fathers walk her down the aisle. It was very sweet.

sandy87 :  Hard to see in the picture but they are actually different. Navy on the left and dark grey on the right. 🙂

We will be having two walk us each down the aisle.  We’re Catholic and the official wedding rule book prefers us to walk down the aisle together, but their second preference is for each to come down the aisle escorted by both parents.  We went back and forth several times because we really, really like the idea of coming down together, and in the end decided to leave it to our folks, because we also liked the idea of both parents escorting us.

Whatever we were going to do, one thing that was never on the table was having poor FH standing in the front with everyone staring at him all alone with nothing to do with his hands.

My parents don’t emote and have on every issue fallen on the flat “Whatever you want to do is fine with us” spiel, but FH’s mom and step-dad both started crying at the idea, his mom because she’s a crier in general and his step-dad because he’s a big beefy butch guy, but goes all to pieces on the few occasions that FH really addresses him as a father.

So yes.  We’ll both be going down the aisle escorted by two people.
