Traditionally, grandpas don’t process down the aisle, only grandmas do so. It’s typically noted in the program as the “Seating of the Grandmothers and Mothers.” I can see that you’d want to involve your grandpas, though. If he’s able to walk by himself, it’s probably most appropriate for him to walk alone just behind your other grandparents. My Father-In-Law processed in that way, just behind my husband and Mother-In-Law (who were together, him escorting her).

I like the idea of another female family member escorting him.

I think the question is more who should *Grandpa* escort up the aisle, if anyone. He could possibly escort your mother, if your father is escorting you. But no, if you have male ushers, they shouldn’t escort another man.

I understand you won’t want your grandpa to walk alone, is he your maternal grandpa?  if so he could walk your mom?


if it’s the other side, then.. i am not sure

What will probably happen for me is: FH’s grandparents are seated, his parents are seated, my brother walks my father’s mother down the aisle and then if my mom isn’t walking me down her father willl walk her to her seat, otherwise he’s on his own to walk (but I am seating him because he was snubbed at the last family wedding and felt totally lost).

The topic ‘who walks Grandpa up the aisle?’ is closed to new replies.
