Wedding Processional: Divorced Parents

Recommended Posts

FI's parents are divorced; his father has a new significant other however his mother doesn't (at least she's not admitting..lol). 

 

How does the wedding processional work with this dynamic? 

 

Who walks his mother down the aisle? 

 

Where does his father (with his significant other) fall into the processional?

I would seat his father & his SO first. Then his mother. Will there be another (close) relative of hers/your FI's who could walk her down the aisle? If not, maybe he can do it?

 

My husband walked his mom (and his sister) down the aisle, even though she is remarried. We had his step dad simply take his seat at the front with the rest of the guests. Once my FI escorted his mother, he took his position at the front of the aisle. Then my mom was escorted by my brother, and then my father walked me down the aisle (we didn't have a wedding party).

 

We chose not to include his father in the processional, as my FI is not very close to him.

 

hope that helps with some ideas! I would do whatever works best for you guys vs. worry about perfect wedding etiquette/order.

Thanks for the reply.  I think we will kindly ask the father's SO to sit on the second row when she arrives.  I don't really want her walking down the aisle.  She's kind of new to us. 

 

Good idea about having a close relative walk his mom down.  I will see if one of her brothers can walk her down to her seat.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
