Hi all!! New bee here, although I’ve lurked for some time!
My fiancé and I are having a super small ceremony in a gazebo in our town. Just a few people attending. I have a logistics question about arriving I could use some help with.
Should my fiancé be waiting in the gazebo with the officiant and I walk up by myself or with my son? Note that I would need to drive my car to the site and park right near the gazebo
Or, does it make more sense to have my fiancé and I walk up together?
Because this is a super casual, Friday morning ceremony I wasn’t sure what made more sense
what do you bees think?

Casual or formal, this is still your wedding so you should do what feels right to you and your Fiance. I voted to have your Fiance waiting in the gazebo and walk down the aisle, because that moment where he sees you walking towards him is a really precious moment that I think you will both want to remember. I still remember the look on my husband’s face when he saw me walking towards him!

Whatever you want honestly. I love the idea of walking down the aisle with your Fiance, it really symbolizes becoming a family to me. But then IDK what you’d do with your kid, is he walking with your or is a grandparent holding him?

He would have someone there to stand with. So it could go either way and he would be fine.

I’d choose to walk together. We’re getting married at the courthouse but previous to that decision I had considered a small family only ceremony and always pictured us walking together. I feel like we’re already in this together and so that both of us walking is like the symbolism of coming into this deeper level of commitment together. As opposed to me walking to him.
