My Fiance Will walk down by himself, I think. Then My FI’s parents will walk together. Since my Dad and my Step Dad are walking down the asile with me, that leaves my Mom alone. I don’t know what to do, there. Would it be weird to have my Future Brother-In-Law take her? Or Maybe have my Step Mom walk with her? Would that look weird, too? Gahhh! I guess I’m saying I’m not sure how it works, either!

i would ask a single male member of my family to walk the mum down, ie a brother, uncle or grandson of the MOB but im guessing they dont have to be part of the bridal party – just a warm body

I want my fiance’s parents to walk down together.  It seems so weird that one of the groomsmen is supposed to walk her down while her husband trails behind.  But everyone wants to do it the traditional way with him walking behind.

I like the concept of parents escorting each other…I know that it’s more traditional for an usher to bring in the Mom and the Dad to follow along, but I’ve always thought that it looked “off” somehow.  I don’t know.  Just my two cents. 

We’ll have the parents walk down together…and anyone needing to seat a grandmother (we’ve got one) the Dad will walk Grandma in and then circle back around.  While he’s circling around, another set of parents will walk in.  Then Dad that escorted Grandma will walk down with his wife. 

Does that sound too complicated?

At the wedding I was at last weekend, the usher took the arm of the mom or grandma and the dad or grandpa walked behind.  I thought it looked awkward, so I know we’re just going to have our moms escorted by our dads.
