I went down the aisle on my own. The mothers had decided at the rehearsal that they wanted to be the last to be seated and were going to walk each other down the aisle. In the end, DH ended up walking them down, him in the center. The fathers sat themselves beforehand.

My conservative, Christian friend had both her parents walk her down the aisle and it was beautiful! The parents of the groom sat themselves, no involvement in the processional.

ETA that if you want to sway your Fiance in your direction, just bring it up more than once. I don’t mean to poo-poo men, but once you give them some time to think it over… they’ll think it was their idea in the first place.

Both my parents are walking me down, as my biological dad passed years ago and my step dad and I are not that close enough were I felt comfortable walking alone. I think his parents walking him down is a lil strange IMO, he could walk down alone and then his parents can precede him. As for getting him on your side, have you tried giving him visuals. Being a man, my Fiance thought of the typical traditional wedding when we first started planning and all my ideas he was like, “You want to do what?” but once I started showing him my inspiration boards and pictures of how I wanted thing to work/look he slowly but surly came over to my side. The only thing I gave my Fiance complete control over was his suit and he groomsmens suits, which to be honest I was completely terrified of what he would pick. Luckly, he picked out exactly what I wanted.
