I like the idea of your mom joining you and your brother at the altar. It seems like a very fair compromise, and your mom is still included. In the end, it is your choice, and you want to be happy with it! 

@gpiglet:  I had my mom and dad walk me down the aisle – I don’t think anyone thought it was too out there at all. Also, too bad if they did, because that was what I wanted! 🙂

@TrueToSelf:  Have you thought about maybe having your brother walk down the aisle, as you had always imagined, and then giving your mum the other important role of witnessing your marriage (i.e. signing the certificate)?

Either way. I always think it is endearing when multiple people walk the bride down the aisle. It shows that there are many people important to the bride!!

I like the idea of your mom meeting you and your brother at the end and giving you away. It sounds like a great compromise and that way your mom can enjoy being able to actually see you walking down the aisle and you’ll get to appreciate the pride and love in her face when she does (if you can take your eyes off your FI). 🙂

First skip the veil.  Second have your mom escorted down the aisle- this is her moment.  Create a wedding program so everyone knows it’s your mom amd the escort name.  Third let your brother walk you down the aisle.  When it comes time for the officiant to ask who gives you away your brother can responds “her mother and I do” or your mother can rise and in unison with your brother say “we do” or the officiant can ask your entire side to give you away. 

My dad choose not to come to my wedding and my mom thought she would walk me down the aisle.  For awhile I liked the idea, but nixed it when it just all seemed silly to me. My brother even thought he was going to do it at one point.  I walked by myself. Our officiant asked the communal/ my side to give me away.
