Absolutely not – it’s completely up to you to decide who (if anyone) walks you down the aisle. I’ve seen plenty of brides go it alone. There is no right or wrong…only what works best for YOU! Don’t feel bad for doing something different!!

Walk yourself down the aisle!  I was strongly considering it myself, but I ended up having both my mom and dad walk me, and then I walked the last little bit by myself.  Do what feels right to you.

My dad isn’t in the picture at all and it would be weird for me to have my mom walk me down the aisle so I’ll be walking alone too!

Walk yourself!!  I’d originally planned to walk myself down but then decided my faithful dog could walk with me and also stand in as the ring bearer 🙂

You can do whatever you want!!

Walk yourself! I’d do it if I wasn’t 99% sure I’d trip and/or faint.

Go with your gut here, if your initial instinct is for your little brother to share in that moment, you owe no explanations! Especially if you’re not even sure the other family members are going to be attending, you should be putting what makes you feel special first. Of course, your compromise is good too, if they DO end up attending and you feel uneasy about having him walk you the whole way.
