I thought about walking myself solo but decided against it, I will be walking down the aisle with my fiance. Since we are both encore’s I thought it was more appropriate to walk in together, after all, me made this decision together and we have been on our own for a while.

My parents both passed away years ago, so no Dad or Mom to walk me down the aisle. I have three brothers to choose from and I decided to have my youngest brother do this for me. I am very close to him, and consider him a best friend. He’s a gay guy with no children and he is actually looking forward to walking me down the aisle, as this is his only chance to have this opportunity, and I think it means a lot to him to do this on behalf of our parents. My advise is to ask someone who would consider it an honor. Otherwise, walking yourself down the aisle is also very symbolic and if it feels right to you, go for it.

My 14-year old son is walking me down the aisle.  I don’t see anything wrong with walking solo or having your hubby meet you halfway down.

I’m an encore bride and my father is actually going to walk me down again. In my particular situation, my first marriage wasn’t at all “the real one” and everyone but me realized it ( I was only 19 and wouldn’t listen to reason). So, it was a collective decision among all my family that this wedding for me will be done as if I never married before.

@dunlapsangel:  That’s exactly what happened to me, and my dad willl be walking me down the aisle again, too.  I have this wonderful picture of us the first time, and I really hope I get another opportunity to get another one like it

@dunlapsangel:  Sounds like me…I was 20 and didn’t have any of the typical wedding “bells and whistles”.  I hope that when the time comes, Dad’s okay with doing it again.

@FlutterbyBee: I actually had a good bit of the “bells and whistles” the first time around but it certainly wasn’t how it should have been. I am truely blessed to be getting a second and real chance at it this time!

I have seen solo brides and thought nothing was wrong with it. Unfortunately my parents have been dead for twenty years so I had my brother and my good friend and mentor escort me.

My ds, 12, walked me down the aisle and it was perfect.

In spirit, along with my ds were my grandparents and father.  I had tied onto my bouquet, a sterling silver angel charm signifying that.

You choose who you wish.  Or you also choose to walk yourself down the aisle.  This is the beauty of imho, being an encore bride!  You can do something quite original!

I figured I’d chime in.  My fiance (at the moment) and I walked down together and some of the best photos of the day are us kissing at the top of the stairs leading down to the beach. (kind of scandelous, kissing before the ceremony!)

We have 5 kids between us and neither of my 2 boys wanted to walk me so the kids went down before us and we just came together, hand in hand!
