Lgbt- walking down the aisle

Hey everyone!

So I’m getting married next April to the love of my life. On small thing, we’re both girls. By no means are we a traditional couple (obviously) but I don’t really know who should go down first or if we should come in together etc. Our venue isn’t really set up for us to both walk in at the same time nor would we have a photographer to take pictures of both us walking down the aisle simultaneously.
Any advice?

    Congratulations!!! Totally up to you and your partner, but it may be a nice special moment have each of you come down the aisle. You could flip a coin on who comes down first, or if one of you is more nervous they can go second down the aisle. My brother and his husband walked down together which was really cute!! I love as a guest watching each person have “their moment” 🥰

    My female co worker is married to a female. For their wedding they each had their parents walk them down the aisle at separate times!

    So my sister said that if she and her wife had a “real” wedding (they had a court house wedding) she (my sister) would have stood at the alter because she would have been in a suit and her wife would be in a dress and walk down the aisle. That’s how they personally would do it
    I don’t think there’s a right or wrong way to do
    It (okay maybe zip-lining in would be wrong😂) If you want to be “traditional” and one of y’all are in a suit, then that person could stand at the alter.

    Not LGBT but my FH and I were discussing this. For our commitment ceremony we just got ready together and walked in together. However for our Minimony we will have a musician so I would like for us to enter separately so the musician has time to play. But I’m not sure who will enter first, I guess traditionally him. For our vow renewal everything is going to be a complete surprise and we will not be seeing each other at all until the entrances so...

    Maybe you could each enter from a side rather than coming down a center aisle and meet each other at the altar?

    My wife and I just discussed who would walk first and decided that way. Our bridal party members walked down first in an alternating order. Then, both of her parents walked her down the aisle, followed by both of my parents walking me down the aisle.

    Have either of you been dreaming of walking down the aisle since you were a little girl? If only one of you has, that person should walk down the aisle second, so you are/she is walking toward your/her person. If neither of you has been dreaming of this, or if both of you have, are you doing a first look? I think if I was in your position and neither of us felt strongly about walking down the aisle, I'd want do a first look in front of the photographer and then walk down the aisle together.

    My FW and I are walking down the aisle together. It’s a fairly small wedding so only our two Maids of Honor and flower girls are walking down before us. It would really depend who wants to go last. For us, I would go last because it would matter more to me and she doesn’t care.

    I would have one of you walk down the isle then once you are in place have the other bride walk down the isle to you. Then you each get your moments. Or you can totally switch it up and have a 360 set up and have chairs all around with two isles and you can each walk to the center at the same time.

    Same boat! We had the same discussion and we are both walking down the isle just a different times. It was more important to her that she got to watch me walk down the isle so she is going first then the WP and then I will come down. We will both be walking ourselves down.
