It has never occurred to me that moms are in included. The dad walks down th aisle, that’s it. if your fiancé escorts your mom I thInk that’s perfectly fair.

You could also have both of your parents walk you down the aisle, if you so wished. I’ve seen it at several weddings now. 

That said, I understand if you want to stick with just having your dad walk with you and think that your compromise solution works well, as long as your Future Mother-In-Law doesn’t resent sharing her son with your mom.

Good luck!

I would incorporate a mother daughter dance as well and make sure to step up and give her a hug at the end of the aisle. And if your minister is asking who gives this bride you could have mom step beside your dad and have them both say we do. it would be a nice touch. I have always wondered why when mom’s do so much for the wedding they get ignored. Just show her you appreciate her, that’s all most mom’s want!

We included both of our mothers in the ceremony. My dad walked me down the aisle and I wanted to include my mom somehow. So, since we had a secular ceremony and wrote it ourselves, we inserted a “mothers” part where the homily would be a religious story (where the priest tells some story about the couple or about marriage and what it means, etc). Both moms wrote out their wishes, advice, and stories about us, and I drafted it together. They each came up and stood with us while the officiant read their part aloud (neither wanted to do it themselves so they didn’t cry).

My mom, step-mom, and Future Mother-In-Law will be escorted in and will care the jars we are using for our unity sand ceremony in.  (Normally in our tradition, the moms are escorted in and light the unity candle)
