May 2012 Weddings

Who is escorting you mom???

I don't have any brothers, and there aren't any men from my side of the family in the wedding party.  Anyone else with a similar scenario?  Who is escorting your mom down the aisle?  I was thinking to have the best man do it, but he's my FI's brother-in-law, and I'm not sure if that's weird or what......I was thinking maybe my dad should do it, but the more I think about it the more I don't want anyone walking down the aisle more than once, just my opinion that I've seen it done and I don't like the way it looks.  Plus, with out set-up it would be difficult to do without going back down the aisle or going through a door that will be behind the "alter" area.

    I have been wondering the same thing.  I think we are having FI's uncle escort my mom.  UNLESS my BM cancels out or doesn't show up for the wedding, if that happens then the GM that would be escorting her will escort my mom.

    We're having the two best men escort my mom & FMIL. One best man is FI's brother, & the other is a best friend.

    I think we're going to have my mom and FMIL escort each other for similar reasons.  Then my 2 younger cousins will each escort our grandmothers.  We're just keep the procession to the women to avoid family issues & because guys don't usually care about that anyways =]

    You could have her walk alone or have an usher escort her.  You could also have your dad escort her, then walk around and back > my friend did this in her wedding and it turned out nicely.  My Mom's SO of 12 years is escorting her.

    Good question! I'm in a similar situation as you, no brothers or anything. At my sister's wedding a few years ago, my mom's father escorted her, however now my grandfather has a long term girlfriend so I think it's more appropriate if they walk together. The best man and my mom don't really know each other...hmmmm

    I believe the Best Man will be escorting my mom down the aisle, but I don't think she'll mind because he's a hottie! LOL

    My FI's mom probably will be escorted by her other two sons (groomsmen).

    Hmm. Now there is one groomsman who isn't escorting anyone...I guess that's why we do a rehearsal!
