Step Parent Roles

I am getting married in November of this year. I am having both my mom and dad walk me down the aisle since they divorced when i was young and they both raised me quite equally and both have played a HUGE part in my life.

But my dilemma is how are my step parents escorted in? Do i have them walk in together to their seats? They will all be sitting in the front row as they are all civil together but i just don't know how they are to walk in. I do not have ushers for my wedding so their really isnt anyone to "escort" my step mom down the aisle. I only have 1 grandparent (my step-mom's mom). I just need help!

    Your step parents can be seated prior to the processional.  They will sit down in the row your parents would be in, so that they can sit with their spouse after you are excorted down the aisle.  If your steps are civil with each other, perhaps they can walk together down the aisle.  If that would be weird or uncomfortable with either of them, they can be escorted by anyone: a sibling, cousin, GM, etc.

    A groomsman can escort your stepdad, then your stepmom, and then your stepmom's mom. They can all sit in the front row with your parents or one family can be in the second row. Your groom's parents can be escorted by a groomsman as well. Then the groomsmen go back down the aisle and either process in, or they find the groom and officiant and enter the front from the side with them.
