I have seen the ushers walk them, but I have also seen the bride or grooms brothers, I have seen cousins walk them in also.  If you are having Hosts, they can walk them in.  I think that my favorite was the last wedding I went to.  The groom walked his mother in, then went to the front with the pastor, then one of the Bridesmaid or Best Man (the grooms brother) walked in with their grandmother and then walked back to the back to walk with the Maid/Matron of Honor.  Really, anyone you want to minispotlight can do it.

There is no hard and fast RULE OF ETIQUETTE on this, except that the Moms as Guests of honour are the last ones seated before the Bridal Party makes their way down the aisle… MOG first then MOB

MOB is typically escorted by someone close… usually in the form of an Usher who is realted (sometimes the Bride’s Brother for example)

Hope this helps,

PS… (( HUGS )) cause I feel for your Girlfriend, Divorce sucks ANYTIME but most definitely so when one is in the midst of planning a Wedding !!

That’s how we do in Brazil.

The groom walks down the aisle with his mom. The bride walks down the aisle with her dad. And the bride’s mom walks down the aisle with the groom’s dad.

if you’re not having your dad at the wedding, why not have you walk down the aisle with your mom?

And your groom can do the same with his mom.

ETA: My dad chose not to come to my wedding so my mom walked me down (and DH’s mom has passed, so that wasn’t an issue).

Whoah, you won’t have your dad at the wedding?

Much as I hate divorce, and even though our dad was in the wrong for leaving my mum (just after my wedding) for a woman he’d been seeing on the side for years, my sister didn’t exclude him from her wedding because he is still our father.

I would advise against not inviting him.

my mom and dad were walking me down the aisle, but no lie, my dress is too big for all three of us to fit smh. so my cousin will be a honorary groomsmen, and will be walking her down.

Cheating was a part of my parent’s divorce and I’m obviously not familiar with your particular situation but make sure you will not regret something like not having your dad give you away:(

But agreed, usually ushers will walk mother’s down the aisle. But looking at your wedding date, you never know-your mom might have someone new in her life to walk her down by the time your date hits?
