- Wedding: September 2012
So bees I have an issue with getting everyone down the aisle for our wedding.
Basically over the weekend I was visiting my mom who wanted to know what we are planning on doing. Now the wedding is not until September, so I know there is lots of time to figure things out, but she wanted to know like now.
The issue for me is that my Fiance has a mother and a Step-mom. Both women have been in his life for a very long time, so we can’t just say only one of you gets to walk….(one birthed him and raised him until 14 and the step mom raised him until he moved out).
I told my mom that we had a few thoughts:
1) Fiance walks with his moms down the aisle and best man walks my mom
2) Fiance walks his mom and my mom down the aisle and bestman walks step mom
3) Fiance moms are already sitting (this is fine with Fiance as he was married once and both his mom and step mom walked down the aisle for that so he does see a problem with them not walking cause they already got to do it once) and the best man walks my mom down.
4) All the moms are already sitting.
I do not want both my parent sto wak me down the aisle. My mom knows this and respects it. However, she is against anyone in my FI’s family walking her down the aisle ( best man might end up being his father). And she wants someone from our family to walk her down. Problem with this is that I have no brothers, no uncles, no grandparents that can fill this. We have two cousins that are coming from my side of the family and they aren’t even related to my mom other than by marriage.
How do I explain to her that she it’s ok to have one of these options? I really don’t want to just have all the moms sitting, I feel that they deserve to be recognized as important and walk down the aisle….. it just my mom grrrrrr
Or is there another way to get them all down the aisle? (only having a Maid/Matron of Honor and bestman)
