    We had a mother of bride, mother of groom, and stepmother of groom. We had the groomsman seat the stepMOG, the best man seat MOG, and my brother seat my mom. 🙂

    I’ve seen MOB’s be seated by all sorts of people … I think it would be sweet for your brother to do it and a way for him to participate in the service.

    We had my Husband’s Brother-In-Law seat my Mother-In-Law then stand at the front of the church… Then my Brother sat my Mom, stood at the front… then the rest of the guys came in the back of the church to stand at the front.

    I think it would be nice for your brother to walk your mom down the aisle.  At other weddings I’ve been in, everyone walking congregates in the back waiting for their turn and I think you might lose some anticipation of waiting to see your groom at the end of the aisle if he walks your mom down.

    Both of my brothers sat my mom – they sat my mom right before Darling Husband and his parents walked down the aisle. They walked up, sat her, then returned to the back so they could go with their processional partners. I loved having my brothers escort my mom and I think my mom did too!

    I have no brothers, so I gave my mom the pick of groomsmen/ushers.  She picked an usher because, “he’s cute.”

    I’d let your mom pick her escort.  If she prefers your brother, then have your brother do it.

    What if the brother is one of the groomsmen ? In my case he is…. would he still be able to seat my mother? Not sure of other duties they might have at that time.

    FI’s Mom by her husband- they will just sit

    Nannie by the grooms brother (best man) and then will return to the back to escort Maid/Matron of Honor

    My mom- by my brother (not in the wedding)- will just sit

    Dad is escorting me.

    My brother is walking my mom down the aisle. He will be the only groomsmen walking down the aisle so he will be lined up the furthest away from the groom once he drops our mom off. FIs mom is walking in with FIs dad.

    My brother escorted my mom down the aisle and then like PitBulLover: mentioned, he returned to the back so he could escort the bridesmaid down.

    It’s funny you mention that you envisioned your Fiance seating your mother and his mother – when we were going over our details, the coordinator for the venue asked about this.  I totally freaked out – it was visceral and I had no control over it, but stated, very loudly that Fiance would not be walking his mom down the aisle.  I had no idea I was so adverse to the idea (I hadn’t thought about it at all), but it creeped me out to no end.  She walked down the aisle with her husband, a much better choice in my opinion.

    My dad walked my mom down the aisle, but that was so they could head up to light the unity candle.  Then he escorted her to her seat and walked back down the aisle to escort me.  🙂
