This is my second wedding (first religious) and my fiancee’s first. My oldest daughter is from my first marriage and is 6 years old, my youngest is my fiancée’s and I, and is 18 months old.
My dad has passed away and I don’t have any male relatives that are close enough to fit the role of walking me down the isle, my mom doesn’t feel comfortable escorting me. So, I am considering these two options:
1) Walking down with my two kids. Me on the left, left hand holding my bouquet and right hand to daughter and she will hold my son on her other hand. I thought this would be better than me being in the middle of both as I would be a me to hold my bouquet and won’t have to slouch down to reach my toddler boys hand.
2) Have my 2 kids walk in front of me holding hands and carrying the rings. Me walk alone and have fiancée meet me somewhere half way down the aisle and walk together to the altar.
I would really appreciate some opinions please 🙂

@vale007: I walked my mom down the aisle for her second marriage when I was 16. She wanted everyone to know that I approved of the marriage to my stepdad.

I don’t know how suceesful you’ll be in having an 18 month old walk down the aisle. You might have to carry.
