I guess if everyone is comfortable with that, then it would be ok.

I personally would not want to be one of the step-parents and have to walk down the aisle alone. I like the idea of the couples walking down together and then the groom. The couples can wait at the end of the aisle so everyone walks up to the chuppah together.

I guess you are getting married in a synagogue or else you could change the width of the aisle? Hmm..this is a tough one. Is he REALLY set on having his parents walk him down the aisle?? I know that my FIs parents want to walk him down because of tradition but Fiance could care less about it. Make sure it is what your Fiance wants! If he really wants his parents to walk him down maybe you could have him and his parents walking and then directly behind them have each of their spouses. Obviously the step mom would be on dads side and step dad would be on moms side. It might be a little awkward, but its the only other thing I can think of. I like the idea of the step parents walking and then meeting them up there, but it doesnt solve the whole problem. Sorry I hope you figure it out!

I like the rabbi’s suggestion. Even though he’d like each parent to walk with their spouse, it makes most sense for the groom to be escorted by both of his biological parents (in this case), especially since everyone is civil. It honors everybody without slighting either his mom or dad.

What if his bio parents walk him down and their respective spouses follow immediately behind?  Then nobody is waiting up front awkwardly, and every one gets down the aisle at one time.

Ok I have another idea. What is the step-parents weren’t really a part of the processional. they would be seated in the front row, and then when the processional was ready to start, they would get up to stand at the end of the aisle and wait for the groom, who is escorted down the aisle by his biological parents, and then they all meet and walk to the chuppah together.
