Why doesn’t Fiance walk alone, and his parents walk down together? That’s what we are doing. I was set on having Fiance walk, but always wanted him to be alone, as it was his moment to shine 🙂

OR you could have FI’s mom in the middle, with Fiance and his dad flanking her on each side.

We will probably just have the mothers be walked down by ushers, in our case they are both single.  The fathers will just be seated (he’s not walking me down the aisle) before the actual processional starts.  Or if you want him to be a part of it he could walk behind your Fiance and his Mom, I’ve seen that done in certain circumstances as well.  I think it would be strange for him to walk with FI’s sister.

@Ms. Sparkles: My husband’s parents didn’t walk down the aisle at all. We had my brother (an usher) walk my mom down the aisle after escorting the ringbearers (my nephews) down the aisle. My husband walked up (or on side) of the aisle himself. It’s how he wanted to do it, so that’s what we did.

We are having the Fiance walk his Mom down the aisle, and his Dad will follow right behind them.  Then the Fiance will join the officiant at the front of the church while the rest of the processional proceeds.

Darling Husband walked his mother down the aisle and his dad walked right behind them.  For the recessional, since Darling Husband had already exited with me, his childhood friend/GM walked his mother out.

We are having Fiance walked down the aisle by both his parents.  They’ll be the first ones down the aisle after the officiant.

I’ve seen it done two ways. 1) FI’s dad is already seated, and a sibling or usher walks his mom down the aisle. 2) Sibling or usher walks FI’s mom down the aisle, and dad is following right behind them. I’ve seen number 2 done more often.

@Ms. Sparkles: You are right in that there isn’t really a tradition to follow if you don’t have a religious guideline, but for your Fiance if he wants to stick to tradition.  What I have seen more often is the Groom escorting his mother with his father following right behind, and then joining the officiant at the front of the church.

I think both your scenarios sould perfectly fine.

I thought the parents walked down together, but could be wrong.  My FH is going down with both parents.  That’s what the Jewish usually do.  Maybe you could ask your officiant?
