Our rough draft goes…

Bride’s Grandmother/Grandfather

Groom’s Mother/Father

Bride’s Mother/Brother (not groomsman)

Groom & Best Man come in from the side up front?

Bridesmaid/Groomsman

Bridesmaid/Groomsman

Bridesmaid/Groomsman

Maid/Matron of Honor

Bride/Father

Hmm…I didn’t think anyone but my Darling Husband would walk my Mother-In-Law down the aisle. He happily did that, and my brothers walked my mom down the aisle.

I will have my Brother-In-Law do this.

Darling Husband escorted my Mother-In-Law down, and then my Father-In-Law escorted both my mother and stepmother down (one on each arm). A little odd, but it worked well.

FIL’s are walking in together.  The order will probably be something like this:

Fiance, Bridesmaid or Best Man and Pastor come onto the alter from the side of the alter (traditional for my church).

Down the aisle:

Brother of Groom walking Sister in Law of Groom (Who is married to Best Man)

My sister and Brother-In-Law together

My other sister and Brother-In-Law together (if they come, and if they don’t sit first – they have 3 kids and one is autistic)

Future In Laws together

Nephews walk my mom

Maid of Honor

Dad & Me.

I hope everything works out for you and you can get t the bottom of this but I have to say that i’m so happy i have a laid back family. my mom said she’ll escort her self to the front isle and sit her own self down LOL people in my family say the only one who needs escorting is the bride and that is because my dad wants to give me away I love that fact that i have such an easy going wedding with out all the extra stuff to think about.

My Dad’s Mom will walk with my Mom. (My Grandpa has passed) I agree, find a male or female relative that is close and have them escort your mother.

You could even ask your Fiance to walk both your mothers down the aisle if he’s walking his mom down.

Both sets of parents are divorced, none of our grandparents are living, and I have no brothers…so,

Fiance will walk my mom, circle back and get his mom

then the flowerchildren will go in pairs of two

then MOH/Best Man

bridesmaids/groomsmen

me/mydad.

My mom is not happy that she can’t walk down the aisle with me and my dad but I put my foot down.

@Nellie-pie-Congrats on your upcoming wedding. Whoever your mom feels comfortable with or she can walk in alone. I hope you found a solution. @SherylAAMy family is the same and my mom / family is the same very easy going   Smile,

As far as I am concerned whatever makes you all happy will work out. My FI can walk his mom down if he likes or both his and mine doesn’t matter really…I do not really think there are “standards” so much as it is a matter of preference, and for some its due to tradition.

This feels like that old riddle: “A man has to get a fox, a chicken, and a sack of corn across a river…”

It’s funny how each wedding has its own idiosyncrasies that make it an impossible thing to Google. For mine, we don’t have ushers and the groom’s father is part of the wedding party, as are the fiance and I’s only siblings, making the “who seats the mothers?” question one about looping back (I have a very long aisle) or cutting the processional by 2.

Can there be a gap between seating the mothers and the beginning of the ceremony? (Like, say, 3 minutes?) Or should I just have the mothers be part of the processional?

We had one of our ushers walk my mom down the aisle to her seat, but I think there would honestly have been more than enough time for my dad to walk her down and then just come down the side aisle to get back to me.  Guess it just depends on your and your parents’ preference and who you want in the walk down the aisle pictures with her.
