    I assume you have no ushers? If not, it’s typical for the groomsmen to double as ushers. I don’t see why it matters that they don’t know her. They simply escort the women in the family down the aisle (usually grandparents too, they groomsman or usher escorts the woman and the man walks behind) right before the ceremony and then exit around the side and go join the groom to enter or the bridesmaids if they are being escorted in as well.

    @michelle22214:  Then I think you answered your own question. A groomsmen escorts her down.

    i think having your cousin do it is totally fine. it’s not like he’s a random dude off the street; he’s close family, so i think he’s a good choice. my friend got married and since she doesn’t have any brothers, a close cousin of her’s escorted her mom down the aisle.

    You could walk down the aisle with both parents, which is common in some traditions.  Or your dad could walk with your mom, seat her and them come back and walk with you.

    What does your mother want?

    I’m so glad you asked this.  My mom and I were just talking about this smae thing this weekend.  My mom does not know any of the groomsmen either and she would feel more comfortable if she had someone she knew.  I have a very close male cousin who will be reading one of the passages during the wedding and I am considering asking him to walk my mom (she is his godmother).  Can’t wait to hear what others have to say.

    @michelle22214:  Ask your mom who she is comfortable with. The person doesn’t need to be a groomsman. A cousin or special friend is great – and it’s another person who can share in celebrating your wedding!
