How to walk down aisle pairings?

How do people walk down the isle? How are you doing yours? I was wondering if it would be weird to have my mom walk down twice? I would like her to walk me down the isle but I also would love for my stepdad to walk down too as he has raised me. This is the order I was thinking

-Groom & his grandmother (only living grandparent between either or us and she was a second mother to him)
-Grooms Mother & Grooms Stepfather (real father will not be there as there is no relationship)
-Brides Real Father & Step Mother
-Brides Mother & Step Father
-Ring Bearer & Flower Girl
-Jr Bridesmaid walking with our dog as a junior grooms man
-BM & GM
-BM & GM
Bride & Mother

I was thinking my mom can just tuck to the side and walk back to get me? or is that too much? so confused as to how to do this, thanks your advice Smiley smile

    Every wedding is different . In many areas it common for bridesmaids to enter alone as groomsmen enter with groom while guests are seated. Guests are seated. Parents are seated last. Then bridesmaids enter.

    The flowergirl and ring bearer generally enter between the MoH and the bride.

    Can you have your stepdad walk alone? I just feel like it would be weird as a guest if I saw someone walk down twice.

    You could have her walk down the aisle twice if you wanted to! My mom and brother both walked down the aisle twice at my sister's wedding. If I remember right (it was a few years ago), my brother walked with my mom at the beginning, and then both my mom and my brother looped around and went to the back, where my brother walked down the aisle with a bridesmaid (he was a groomsman), and my mom and dad both walked down the aisle with my sister.

    My brother and my husband's brother walked down the aisle twice. My brother was my bride's man and his brother was a groomsman. Since my dad walked me down the aisle, we had my brother walk down with my mom then looped back around to escort the groomswoman down the aisle. My mother-in-law is single so it made sense for my husband's brother/her son to walk her down the aisle so then he also looped back around to escort one of the bridesmaids down the aisle. We were nervous about how it would work so we practiced it several times at our rehearsal and it worked out perfectly. If anyone thought it was weird that didn't say anything to us.

    Have you thought about both your mother and stepfather walking you down together? Just a thought.

    Our nephew walked in twice. He escorted his grandparents and then went back and escorted my mom

    Does your venue only have one way up and down the aisle? My parents walked down together then my dad circled back around then walked me down.

    We had grandparents escorted first, then our bridal party walked individually, followed by my wife with both her mom and dad, then myself with my mom and dad. If you want your mom to be a part of walking you down the aisle, I wouldn't have her walk before that.
