I would really like to honor my Mother in a special way either at the ceremony or reception.
My parents are not together. Me and my Dad have a special bond… I’m a Daddy’s girl. My Mom and I have a great different bond. Basically though both of my parents have been amazing throughout my life. Where one parent lacked, the other made up for it in different ways. So in a way they are equal.
I would really like to honor my Mom in a special way. Traditionally Dad gets to walk me down the aisle and gets a dance. And… what does Mom get? Nothing… that I know of.
Our wedding isn’t very traditional. What can I do special for my Mommy?
I have thought about having both of my parents walk me down the aisle and have my dad still dance with me. I’m just not sure how my Dad would respond to it. If he would prefer to walk me down the aisle and still dance with me, what could I do to honor my mom?

I don’t see what the issue is with having both walk you down the aisle I think it symbolizes their equally important roles in your life! I’ve also seen rose ceremonys for both the grooms and brides mom, and the both read short statements about what their parent’s meant to them.

I’m interested in this, too. We’re considering doing a dance after the Mother of the Groom dance where I’ll dance with his dad and he’ll dance with my mom. I think it’s a nice way to honor everyone.

Both my parents are walking me down the isle and she is holding my fi ring. His mom is holding my ring. Then they both come up and give us the rings. It shows their approval. You could do a reading aout how moms are great when u do that. Then u can hug and it would be sweet.

I’m also walking down the aisle with both parents….. I’ve seen a few people do it, and I think it’s nice. I actually think it may even be traditional in a Jewish wedding, but I am not sure. Fiance is also walking down with both parents (both sets of parents are married still too – I don’t know if that might cause any drama for you, but i would think they would put their differences aside if it meant a lot to you). Good luck!

i’m walking down the aisle with both parents (tho if i had my way, it would just be my mom) and i’m dancing with my mom at the reception. some people might think it’s kinda weird, but i dance with my mom all the time and i never dance with my dad, so that’s going to be the weird one for me, lol

My mom walked me down the aisle. After all the toasts, I made a special toast to my mom and presented my bouquet to her…it was awesome
