Divorced sister walking brother down the wedding aisle

Question:

Is it problematic if a divorced sister walks her brother down the wedding aisle since their mother cannot attend?

Answer:

The custom is that a married couple walk the chosson and kallah down to the chuppah, as a good siman. Therefore it should be a couple that walks them down. The divorced sister can walk in back of them, or there should be another couple walking down together with the father.

Best wishes
