    In some cases father walks bride and in some cases parents walk bride. I don't think I've seen mother walk down the aisle, generally she would already be seated but you can have a groomsman walk her down.

    Do you have ushers? If not, some people have the groomsmen do double duty for their VIP's.

    Do you have a brother, uncle or cousin who could escort your Mom? Your Dad could escort your Mom to her seat, then return for the rest of the processional.

    Whether your Mom and the groom's parents are considered part of the processional or not, someone should escort your Mom.

    I'll probably have my brother do it, or my mom will walk with my step-mom.

    Here was the order of our processional:

    (1) my brother (also officiant) escorted my mom;

    (2) DH escorted his mom with his dad walking behind;

    (3) bridesmaids escorted by groomsmen;

    (4) MOH escorted by BM;

    (5) me escorted by my step-dad

    Honestly I was wondering this myself, but I don't think there's a "rule" to it like i was thinking lol. I've seen many scenarios like the ones explained above, and I've also seen the groom walking both mothers down the aisle. Its whatever you feel comfortable with I guess. Unless you're doing a church wedding. In my fiance's sister's wedding, the ushers (the other groomsmen) had walked the mother of the bride to her seat. And by the time the processional started, the BestMan walked the mother of the groom down the aisle and the MOH walked down by herself

    I had my brother escort my mom in. If you have any ushers, they can walk her in. I've seen lots of different arrangements though, I've seen the mom already seated, I've seen the groom walk the MOB in, I've seen the MOB walk the bride. However you would like to arrange your processional is fine.

    H's parents walked together. My brother walked my mother down the aisle. My 12 yo niece (our ring bearer and chalice lighter) walked with our officiant. H and his BM walked together. My two BMs and 1 MOH walked in pairs with H's three GM. My 2 yo niece and 4 yo nephew (our flower children) walked in right before my dad and me.

    I gave my mom a choice, since I don't have a brother. I have a feeling she will pick my aunt/ godmother who is her sister. she is the type to feel "lonely" if not walked down!!

    A lot of people have an usher or groomsman walk the MOB down the aisle. We will have FFIL walk with my mom and FMIL will walk with her husband.

    Mom can be escorted by anyone she'd like to have escort her. In our case, my brother escorted our mom. He was also a GM, so after she was seated, he returned up the side of the ceremony area to join DH and the other GM and then walked in line with them from the side up to the front.

    DH's parents are divorced, so MIL was escorted by her husband and FIL actually escorted my Grandmom, as she is widowed and his girlfriend couldn't attend. DH's step-grandparents walked together.

    If you have a brother or if your mom has a brother, they could walk her down the aisle. Really though I think anyone could walk her down, but it's usually a guy from her family. I'm just having my mom and dad both walk me down the aisle, so I don't have to worry about who is escorting my mom.

    This is one part I am still unsure of. My father is deceased and FH parents are not together. The ushers I had backed out so I was going to have my mom and FMIL walk in alone.

    This is a hot topic in our family!! Smiley smile I'm the 5th one to get married in my family and we've followed the same rules at every wedding. We have step family involved too, which complicates things. My mom feels it's a sign of respect to have the Groom escort the moms - sort of the opposite of dad giving away the bride. I am breaking tradition a little bit and walking in alone but this is our processional:

    Groom (or usher or BM) escorts MOG (FOG follows behind)

    FOB escorts StepMOB

    Groom escorts MOB

    Groom stays at alter

    Bridal Party procession (BM GM, BM GM, MOH BM)

    Bride

    @LaTasha - don't let them walk-in alone. have the Groom walk them down, either together one make 2 trips. they are very special women in your lives and deserve an escort.

    @Amanda- thank you for your suggestion! I had not thought about that and I'm sure my groom wouldn't mind doing it.
