    @pinkbride2012: i dont think so! they are escorts – so kinda like ushers i guess. i would have them walk her down and get her seated then come back around and walk the flower girls down..most of the moms get seated prior the the procession anyway

    @pinkbride2012: I am in the exact same situation, but my future step-son is 7. I think we’re going to have him be a junior groomsman that way he gets to actually participate in the ceremony and stand up there with his Dad. It’s very important to me that he feels part of union. I love him and don’t want him to feel like I am coming between him and his father, but raher we are merging our family units.

    I think in your situation I agree with the previous post. The boys can walk the Mother-In-Law down the aisle prior to ceremony and then walk with their father during the precessional, But I think the junior groomsman is an excellent choice for both boys.
