Mother's Lighting Candles for Unity Candle Ceremony
Is it okay to just have the mothers walk down the isle together to light the candles and then be seated, rather than being escorted? My mother would not have an escort, as my one and only brother passed last year. Would not want her to feel uncomfortable by the other mother being escorted by one of her sons. Or I could use a nephew instead, although the only one is 11 years old that will be attending.

I have been to a few weddings where the mothers escorted one another to light the candles!! There is nothing wrong with that.

Is she walking you down the aisle?
If not, any groomsman can escort her, even the groom would be sweet. Once both moms have been seated, then they walk up together to light the individual candles.

If she is walking you down the aisle, the I would just have the candles lit in advance (before guests arrive)
