The big day is less than a month away!
Trying to settle on processional order and need help. We have six bridesmaids, five groomsmen, a pastor, my uncle escorting my grandmother, Fi’s grandparents, MOB, parents of groom, and obliviously the groom, me, and FOB.
So far I have this:
Pastor, groom and groomsmen walk out
parents of groom
MOB and ……
Maid/Matron of Honor
FOB and me
I need someone to walk down my mom. I have no siblings. I guess I could ask a cousin. Should I just pick a groomsmen or random usher? Or should I change the order? She definitely does not want to walk down alone.
Thanks for your help 🙂

Could your dad walk both of you? I was in a wedding where the FOB walked the MOB down the aisle and then turned around and went back for the bride. We just timed it so that he had time to turn around and come back before I stated walking down (I was MOH)

Is there a reason why your grandmother can’t walk out with your mother together?

I think yuo have several options and you need to figure out works best for you.
1. A siblilng not in the wedding party could walk down your mom
2. If wanted to included kids but wanted somene guiding them down the aisle h ere is your chance the mom can walk down with the ring bearer and flower girl killing to two birds with one stone.
3. Yes your dad could walk her down and then you but I think that is awkward though I have seen this done ditto for the mother of the groom -I have seen the groom walk her down or a groomsmen but it looks odd to “re walk or re enter.
4. Assuming the aisle is wide enouugh in our modern society the bride walksk down with both parents as both parents made and created you and both can give you away (well that may not be so modern but can release you to be free or bless you to enter a “new” family with your husband.
5. The oldest male cousin on the bride side could walk her down.
6. Father of the Groom can walk down mom of bride and mom of groom.
7. Walk down with grand mother

My parents both walked down with me. They’ve both supported me throughout my life, so I didn’t feel right just asking my dad to walk me down.

You may consider having parents and grandparents seated before the groom comes out. I’m sure his family would love to see his entrance. My mother would have been gravely disappointed to not see her son and best man/groomsmen come out.
Most weddings I’ve been to the FOB walks MOB down, then goes back for the bride.
