    The one I went to, the parents were just already sitting and stood up to give the bride/groom a kiss/hug whatever. I think it’s fine.

    We had a small wedding and everyone but my brother and I were already at the gazebo.  Our parents were already up there (I would say sitting but seeing as we had no chairs delivered – all but my mom who had a wheelchair were standing) and his two best men were already up there with him.

    I’d just pick whatever you and your parents want.  We let our parents sort of decide what they wanted to do.  I think any way will be fine!

    I would ask your parents.  I will be acknowledging parents but only my Maid/Matron of Honor and I will walk down the aisle.  No groomsmen cause Fiance doesn’t want one.

    My wedding is going to be about the same size as yours (also on the beach) and we plan to have our parents (mothers) sitting from the start. We do plan to acknowledge them, but I will be the only one actually walking down the aisle. We don’t have any bridesmaids/groomsmen either because if we did we wouldn’t have hardly anyone in the audience and we wanted everyone to enjoy the ceremony as a guest and keep it about the two of us.
