New Trend: Walking Down the Aisle with Mom & Dad


As a little girl I grew up with the traditional notion that my Dad would walk me down the aisle on my Wedding Day. But in reality it ended up both my parents that stood by my side as I took that last walk as a single woman. And honestly, I wouldn't have had it any other way.


If you haven't already learned by now, being a destination bride means the concept of "tradition" kind of goes out the door and you should wholeheartedly embrace that!


Walking down the aisle with both of your parents creates such a special moment that you will always get to share with the two people who brought you into this world, and it also gives way for beautiful imagery filled with lots of emotion.


So if you plan to have both mom and dad walk you down the aisle, here are a few important things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure your wedding aisle is suitable for three people to walk down side-by-side together.
  • Make sure to practice with both your parents by your side during your Wedding Ceremony rehearsal
  • Make sure you give your photographer a heads up that you will have both your parents by your side. Your photographer will appreciate being able to plan for this moment ahead of time to ensure he/she is standing in the best location to get the perfect angle.
