My inlaws walked in together

My mother (divorced) was walked down the aisle by my nephew.

My brother-in-law (sister’s husband) walked my mom to her seat. She really appreciated it. My Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law walked together. It is very common to have someone walk the parents to their seats. Can an uncle or cousin do it?

@princess_r:  Most weddings I’ve been to the mothers were the first to come in before the BMs and GMs.

Does your mother have any brothers who could do it or a grandson or a special close cousin of hers?

My mother walked me down the aisle since my father is dead. During the recessional her two brothers escorted her up the aisle. It made for a great photo!

@princess_r:  Destination wedding at the beach and my groom and I will be the only ones walking up or down the aisle…and my mother isnt pleased.  I’m having trouble figuring out if your mom is a diva who wants the spotlight like MY mom of if she is just traditional. 

Either way, there is nothing wrong with your original plan.  I don’t think there is a “rule” on this one.

I’ve usually seen ushers do this.

When I was MOB, I had my Dad (bride’s Grandfather) escort me in. Traditional entry is parents of the groom and then MOB before the rest of the bridal party. Have any special Uncles that could do her the honor or is your Girlfriend going to be there?

can you have the two mothers walk down together? or could you have your maid of honor walk alone and have one of your brothers walk her down? the only other option I can think of is for an usher to do it which isn’t as formal

here is what I would do… I would have one of my brothers walk her in. Since she comes in before the bridal party I would just have it be like he was walking her in and ushering her to her seat. then he could loop around and take his place in the bridal party for the procession.

problem solved! at least it would be for me 🙂
