aiko161:  Can two of your bridesmaids walk as your crutches?  I wouldn’t think the groomsmen are giving you away, personally.  But friends or family would work as well.  

This is a totally different situation, but my cousin in law has a rare muscular disease.  She was nearly confined to a wheel chair leading up to her wedding and the last steps she took were down the aisle to get married.  She walked with her dad supporting her.  My cousin carried her back down the aisle once they were married.  She switched to her wheelchair after that.

Do you think you may be walking in a boot in a couple of weeks?

That sucks girl…… one of my BMs is in a boot and will be in a boot by the time the wedding comes around. The way she broke her foot was kind of silly though so we are all having fun with it

I’d opt for the bridesmaids to help you down the aisle if you think that’ll be easier than crutches. 

Just remember, you won’t be the first and to have fun with it. Decorate that cast! Use it for a guest book? haha.

As long as the groomsmen don’t hug/shake hands with your FI at the front of the aisle and no one says anything about “who gives this woman?” – I highly doubt people will think that they are giving you away. Everyone will know that you broke your foot and need the help. 

In order to really minimise this, your FI could meet you much eaier down the aisle than normal and take over with one of the other guys. Or, just before the aisle he and one bridesmaid could come down and help you the rest of the way. 

OR

Any chance you can get one of these? 😛

aiko161:  I would not use people as crutches.  That’s not only more of a fall risk than crutches, but you’d be taking them down with you.  I think using people would look tremendously awkward. They would literally have to carry you every other step. Even more awkward if they arn’t the same height. How is that better than crutches?  Practice using them a few days before in your dress and go slow.  You’ll do fine.  You can decorate them in your wedding colors too, attach flowers to them, they can be an accessory, not something to hide.

Maybe rethink the ceremony. Have him walk to you.

I like the idea of decorating the crutches. It’ll be fun and two nervous groomsmen won’t have to coordinate their walking / carrying with yours to the sound of the music. Plus it sends the message: hell yeah, I can get this done myself!

This reminds me of the BCBS commerical.

 

I would say see if you can get a cast/boot that you can walk in without crutches. And I like the idea of decorating your cast and/or crutches 🙂

aiko161:  I dont think it will look like they are giving you away. It will look like they are helping you to walk. lol.

 

Any chance of FI carrying you all the way down the isle? Why dont you walk with him? I know some ppl are set on the groom waiting there, but some choose to walk down together? Any father/brother figure in your life? I would walk with my bro (no dad) and FI, if fi could not carry me. But would be so super awesome to be carried lol.
