How old is your Mother? Are you telling us that she is not well enough to stand up for the ceremony?

If she is healthy enough, I would have her walk in with the bridal party and stand beside you during the ceremony.

If she is truly not well enough to stand for the whole ceremony, I would still have her do the processional, then take a seat in the front row with your stepfather, or have a chair at the front for her to use during the ceremony.

You have two options for seating at the reception. She can sit at the head table and your stepfather could be seated at a table with other close family. (I’m presuming no other SO’s of the wedding party are going to be seated at the head table.)

Or, you could  seat her at a table with your stepfather to avoid the seating issues regarding the other parents. She can come up to the head table for her speech.

Why not do a sweetheart table for you and FI? Or- do a bridal party (and their SOs-please keep couples together) table, except for the parents. Have three parent tables- Mom, Dad, and FI’s.

My mom is also my matron of honor.  She’s only 50 so she’ll stand up there with me with the rest of the wedding party.  I think your mom can walk donwn the aisle after the bm’s and then instead of standing can take her reserevd spot in front.  Sfter the ceremony is over she can walk down the asile again after the last bm’s and right before you.

I am having a sweetheart/family table for just me, fi and our 3 kids.  The wedding party will be intermixed in with our guests (most will have families there they can sit with).
