Stupid Question.......Mom and Dad walking me down the aisle

Both of my parents are escorting me down the aisle at my wedding. I know it's a stupid question, but I am unsure how this is done. Do I link my arms through one of theirs on both sides? Do we just walk side by side without touching?  I am trying to picture it, but having a hard time. Thanks for your help.

Re: Stupid Question.......Mom and Dad walking me down the aisle

  • It's hard to walk three abreast with linked arms and holding your bouquet.   What you can do is perhaps put your arm thru your dad's and your mom can hold your elbow or put her arm around your waist.  Or you can walk with both hands holding your bouquet, and your parents can be gently holding your elbows.  Hold your bouquet low, a good way to remember is keep your thumb close to your belly button, so people can see your dress and face.

    I would only link arms with your dad. Three people with linked arms is a walking disaster. Like a three legged race, but with 4 people. A four legged race.
    Your mom can hold your elbow so you can hold your bouquet (or what ever you carry, if anything) or she can even hold your hand and carry your bouquet for you until you get to the alter.
    This isn't somethng to overthink because once you start walking, you'll figure out how to do it.

  • I just had to look at my pictures to see what I did. Honestly, we just did what felt natural at the moment.

    I have dad on the right, bouquet and mom on the left. I am linking arms with both and only held onto my bouquet with my left hand. It looks fine.
  • I've been wondering the same thing!
  • Do what feels comfortable! Give it a few practice tries during rehearsal and go with whatever works best. In my head, it would make sense to link arms with your dad and hold your bouquet with the same arm your using to link, then hold hands with your mom. Just a thought :)

  • Also, make sure aisle is wide enough.  I was at a church wedding where dad, bride, and mom kept bumping into pomanders hung on outside of pews.
