SO Walking Down the Aisle

I haven't given too much thought to this but as I was reading the who is walking you down the aisle thread it made me think of my mom. When does she walk down to take her seat? My dad is walking me down the aisle, FI mom is walking him down (his dad passed away) but what about my mom?

    Mom's are usually the first ones down the aisle, escorted by an usher...
    but I have seen lots of people switch it up, or have them escorted by other significant males.

    What about if I have my two sisters walk down with her? My one sister is coming from Poland and we haven't seen her in 15 years, maybe it will be nice to have the three of them walk down together? Or would it be weird since both my sisters are married and their husbands would be already sitting down?

    We had:
    Maternal Grandma - Mom's Brother V
    Paternal Grandma - Her Son-In-Law M
    DH's Mom - Her Brother R
    My Mom - Her Brother V

    So my mom's brother did double duty and walked both my mom and my grandma. No one even noticed he seated my grandma walked around the front pew and down the side to the back everyone at that point was paying attention to the next person coming down the asile. If my mom's brother hadn't been able to get out of Italy (because of the Ash from the volcano) we would have used an usher.

    I think it would be nice to honor your sisters (assuming they are not BM's?) it would not be weird at all. They would walk your mom down the asile then they would take their seat next to their husbands. The uncle who walked my paternal grandma down the asile just joined his wife (my aunt) in the pew and it was fine.

    My grandparents have all passed away as well as my mom's brother, so I think I'm going to go with my sisters walking down with her (they're not my BM's)

    Women can absolutely be ushers, so having your mom walk with your sisters is a nice idea.

    The bride's mother is traditionally the last one seated before the attendants walk down the aisle. Although you don't HAVE to do it that way. Your FI could escort his mom and then take his place up front, then yuor sisters can escort your mother, and then the bridesmaids (and groomsmen, if they're coming in pairs) can come down the aisle with you and your dad as the last ones.

    DH and our Best Man waited in the sacristy with the priest before things got started. My brother, who was the other groomsman, hung out in the back of the church and I think he may have seated people, I'm not sure. FIL was already seated, since he didn't want to be part of the processional, and my grandmother (the only grandparent) was also in her seat already. Once I got into the church, the priest and BM and DH walked out and waited on the altar, my brother escorted our mom, the bridesmaid walked, the MOH walked and then my dad and I came down.

    My mom will actually be escorted in by my FI since I don't have any brothers, and my grandfather passed away when I was very little. FI's parents will enter in together.
