Ceremony and Vow Ideas

Walk down the aisle?

My parents have been divorced since I was little. My dad has since remarried, however my mom has not.

What is the normal "waltz" down the aisle per say? I know the father of the bride usually walks the daughter down the aisle, but who escorts the moms prior and so forth? My fiances parents are still together, and I just don't want the "parent couples" walking down together, and then my mom being left out.

Re: Walk down the aisle?

  • The MOB and MOG are usually seated by ushers and the FOG follows behind his wife and the usher.  If the FOG is willing to escort his wife that is fine (my step-dad actually refused to seat my mother and insisted she walk with an usher).  So I doubt anyone will find it odd if you mother is seated by an usher or another family member if you aren't having ushers.

  • If you plan to walk with only your dad, your step mom could be seated by an usher, a groomsman, a step brother (if you have one) or any other relative. Same for your mom. There are no hard and fast rules for this.

    My in-laws are walking together at the start of our procession, and then my brother is escorting my Mom.  If bro wasn't an option, we likely would have had FIL escort both moms.   Failing that, it would have been one of the ushers (one of whom will be Mom's SIL).

    My brother is escorting my mom down the aisle. And my FI is escorting his mom. 

  • Anyone can escort your mother.  At daughter's wedding, I chose my son to escort me, and he was acting as one of the ushers, too.  My husband was waiting to escort our daughter.  Only in Jewish weddings do the MOG and FOG customarily walk together, and they both walk with the bride.

    I think you mean the groom's parents escort the groom?
  • I'm having my nephew escort my mother.
