Who walks mom down the aisle?

With less than 2 weeks to go, my mom asked me who walked her down the aisle and I had no answer. My dad (her husband) is walking me and we don't have ushers as just the groomsmen will be doing that. My FH's parents will walk down together. I haven't been to many weddings so I'm not for sure what's common. Any advice is appreciated!

    I have twin brothers who are walking my grandparents down the aisle but I am leaning towards my sisters husband my brother in law walk her down the aisle. He is in the wedding but I can't choice between twins! Haha and he's been a part of my life for over 13 years now and I think this is acceptable.

    Your Dad can escort his wife, then return for you.

    A brother, an uncle, your dad. Or you could walk up with both of them.

    I've been thinking about this too! I think I'm going to have my dad escort mom in then come back and walk me in.

    Thank you everyone! I think I will have my dad walk her down and then come back to walk me in. I wasn't sure if that was normal to do, but because I don't have any uncles and my brother is a groomsman, that seems like the only option! That's what she wanted anyway.

    My brother is seating my mom. Or if that's not an option maybe an uncle or someone else close to her?

    I walked down the aisle with both my parents. I wouldn't have had it any other way. My mother has been an instrumental figure, in my life.

    My brother escorted my mom, then returned to the back so he could enter again with the rest of the GM.

    I'd choose your brother or uncle if you have one. Apparently it's a big deal that the moms are accompanied by men, not women, so don't choose a woman or all hell might break loose.... (based on experience, not my personal view. I think it's stupid a f)

    Either my brother (if he decides to come) or my uncle.

    I think usually a brother would, but I'm an only child and a cousin whom we are very close with escorted my mother.

    My brother is- he is also a groomsman hell just be turning around back after my mom is seated to walk as a groomsman as well.

    I'm walking with both parents. But if you aren't walking with your mom and she isn't in the wedding party she can just take her seat along with anyone else who doesn't have a role to play.

    At my daughters wedding, the Best Man walked me down the aisle. One groomsman escorted by ex's wife (affectionately known as my wife-in-law) and another escorted the grooms mother.
