- Wedding: May 2011
A bit of background: We don’t have a formal “wedding party” no best man or maid of honor.. just me and my Fiance. It’s going to be an outdoor ceremony in a garden and will also be pretty informal so we will not have ushers either. In fact I plan on having a sign like Mrs. Hippos that says something along the lines of “don’t select a side, just select a seat” I am reserving the first 2 rows of each side for close family and I have actual reserved seat signs for (FI grandparents, Fiance parents, my parents and my stepmother.)
So here is what I had planned so far:
After all the guests have been seated. Officiant and Fiance will walk in from the side.
Processional music starts and FI’s grandparents walk down the aisle together and take their seat, then FI’s parents walk down together and then take their seat. After that song I am walking down the aisle with both my mother and father. So here is the issue: what do I do with my stepmother..Have her just sit in the front row(which will be fairly empty until grandparents and such get done walking)? I would like to include her, but I think it would be weird for her to just walk by herself. And since we are not having ushers and neither of us have a brother I’m not really sure what to do.
