Who does groom walk down aisle with?

Answered by John Hunt

Traditionally, the groom walks down the aisle solo, symbolizing his independence and readiness to enter into marriage. However, wedding customs have evolved, and there are now a few different options for how the groom can make his entrance.

One option is for the groom to be escorted down the aisle by both of his parents. This can be a meaningful and inclusive choice, emphasizing the importance of both sides of the family in the union. It can also be a way to honor and involve the groom’s parents in the ceremony. This approach can create a touching and heartfelt moment as the groom is accompanied by his loved ones to the altar.

On the other hand, some grooms prefer a more subtle approach. In this case, the groom may choose to enter the ceremony from the side of the venue, following the officiant and followed by his groomsmen. This allows for a more low-key entrance, and the groom can simply take his place at the altar without any formal escort. This option is often favored by grooms who prefer a less traditional or formal ceremony.

Ultimately, the decision of who the groom walks down the aisle with is a personal one and should be based on the couple’s preferences and values. It’s important for the groom to discuss this with his partner and consider what feels most comfortable and meaningful to both of them.

In my own wedding, my husband chose to walk down the aisle with both of his parents. It was a beautiful moment that brought tears to our eyes. Seeing him surrounded by his loved ones as he made his way towards me symbolized the merging of our families and the support we had from both sides. It was a small but significant detail that added an extra touch of love and unity to our ceremony.

The groom can choose to walk down the aisle solo, with both parents, or take a more subtle approach by entering from the side of the venue. The decision should be based on the couple’s preferences and the atmosphere they wish to create for their wedding.
