Awww sweetie, *hugs* I’m so sorry to hear about your mom, I can’t even imagine 🙁 

As far as walking down the aisle, I don’t think it’s at all weird to do it alone, but if that makes you uncomfortable, you could have your groom meet you halfway down?  Or you could have your sister walk you down, so it’s still your family ‘giving you away’?

I’m so sorry, I can’t begin to imagine what you must be going through. I hope everything works out in the end for you.

I know it’s not nearly the same, but could you maybe wrap a favorite necklace of your mother’s around your bouquet or use a similar item of your father’s (tie)? That way a little peice of them will be going down the aisle with you.

@dptobe:  My heart goes out to you, I am so so sorry for your loss


It’s got to be very hard and just so many emotions, my best suggestion is being a girl who father wont be there either, walk your self. Just remember you are walking to the man who makes you whole 


You might be nervous but he will greet you with the most amazing smile, and all the nerves will melt away. 


I do think the fact his father wants to walk with you is really showing how they are welcoming you to their family its beautiful in some ways. 

also maybe put up a sign like one of those so you don’t feel like your side is to small it might make you feel less nervous knowing you have set the tone that way


another idea is if you have a deer friend who can walk you … I will likely be walking alone my self… i thought about walking with my uncle but I think my cousin his only daughter should get that honror 1st then i thought of my moms best friends husband he is like a father, but i dont want to offened my uncle so i think i will walk alone… we can do it totally we can 😀 just remember your walking to a bright future with the man you love no need to be nervous
