    Im actually thinking of having FMIL do this because of her relationship with both FI and I.

      I have seen it quite a few times before too - I think it's kind of sweet for the groom to walk his Mom to her seat. She'll appreciate her inclusion in the ceremony and what does it hurt, really?

        I have seen the groom walk down with his Mom and take her to her seat and then the bridal party walks down. I think that the two of you need to do what you guys want, but it probably won't hurt to have your FI walk his mom to her seat.

          I agree with the other ladies. Have him walk her to her seat and definitely before the BM's walk.

            I agree...I don't think there's anything weird about it at all as long as it's before the bridal party. My aunt walked down the aisle with her son (my cousin) at his wedding. At my other cousin's wedding he was just standing up there waiting and his parents walked down the aisle, followed by the bridal party and then finally the bride.

            Actually, now that I think about it, the groom's parents have walked down the aisle in every single wedding I've ever been to - but it's always before the bridal party. My mom walked down the aisle in my brother's wedding but not with him. She just had ushers escort her down the aisle, followed by my grandmother, the bridal party and then the bride.

            It's all up to you honestly, because it's your & your FI's day but there's certainly nothing weird about it. I plan to have my FMIL walk down the aisle, followed by my mom and then the bridal party.

              I agree with everyone. He can escort her down the aisle to her seat prior to the bridesmaids entering. She does not need to walk down right before the bride.

                My FI plans on walking down the aisle with both of his parents. I don't think it's weird at all. Since its pretty common for the parents and the grandparents to walk down before the bridesmaids, I don't see the harm in your FI and MIL walking together. If she's single this might be why she wants him to walk her, so she doesn't have to walk alone. Last year at my FI's brother's wedding, my FI was the best man and had to walk down the aisle TWICE b/c his grandmother (who is recently a widow) wanted someone to escort her down the aisle. It was so cute, he led her to her seat and then did another lap to walk down the MOH.

                  I have been to several weddings where the groom walked down the aisle with his parents or his mom....but they did that as the very start of the whole ceremony....it was like a signal to everyone things were beginning. Then the rest of the wedding party came in. IMO that is okay, but it would seem weird to me to have the mom go up right before me in the processional. It is your day though and if you and FI don't want to do this, then you guys just have to be as nice about it as you can and tell her no. Good luck!

                    I don't think it's a bad idea really as long as the bridesmaids go after. It will be almost as if he's escorting her to her seat anyway. As long as you space it accordingly before you walk down the aisle it should be great.

                      I love the idea of my FI walking down the aisle with his mom. I think she would be really touched. I have to ask him if he would want to do that at our Wedding. My dad passed away so I am walking down with my mom as well.
