I’m thinking of having both of my parents walk down the aisle with me and give me away. For married bees who did this or engaged bees who plan to do this, how do you carry your bouquet if each of your arms are hooked on to each parent? Am I over thinking this? Do you have a pic?

My sister did this. You just hold your bouquet with both hands and hold your arms a bit away from your sides and have each of your parents tuck a hand on each arm. So you arent really linking arms, they’re just holding onto your arm in a way.
Or you hold your dads arm and your mom grips yours (photo below)
Here’s some pictures I found of other people doing it (thank you google)

I saw this at a Jewish wedding I attended. One word of advice, just make sure your aisle is wide enough for you, your parents and your dress!

This is done at most Jewish weddings (and it is what I’ll be doing). The above photos are great. I think you would situate your arms maybe slightly away from you and then your parents would just kind of hook in and adjust the way they are ‘attached’ to you so its comfortable and looks nice.

@LittleRedOwl: Thank you for the pics! This is awesome! (Why didn’t I think of googling this lol) I like the idea of the second one where I hook onto my dad and my mom hooks on to me.
@kerensa: Good point! It’s an outdoor ceremony so I’ll make sure to tell the chair vendor to make the aisle wide enough.
@RhubarbPie: I think it’s great to walk down with both parents. Just want to make sure it looks comfortable and not awkward =)

I did this, very similar to the 2nd picture posted above. My mom held my left elbow, I held my bouquet in my left hand. I held onto my dad’s hand with my right. My dad has trouble walking, so the hand to hand connection was more stable for him – that way he could get down the aisle without a walker.
Definitely agree on testing out the width of the aisle! 3 people take up a lot of room!
