Do you have another family member that you would entrust to do it? Uncle, brother, cousin, grandfather?  If not maybe someone special to you and your SO?  Maybe even your mom or another close supportive female family member.  Pick someone meaningful, someone who you expect to support your marriage and you in life.  I am sorry he is not receptive to your life, I think that someday he will look back and regret that decision.  ((HUGS))

Personally I think you shouldn’t even be giving that honor to someome who dosent seem to support  you, in addition to him not being thrilled about your marriage which is the purpose of the whole day.

I perosnally don’t feel I need my dad to give , but I know it really important to others, so consider another family member like an uncle or brother or grandfather or perhaps even your mom. Good luck!

I know it might be hard to hear and obviously you love your father very much but he isnt comfortable doing the deed, you really need to find someone with 3 traits… someone who respects you and you relationship, someone who has been there for you, and someone who will be there for you forever and for always. Walking someone down the aisle is an important job and not just anyone is fit for the job. 

My step dad was never really a great dad to me at all and i dont know my real dad so i plan to ask my grandpa… if he’s ill and cannot, then i plan to ask my twin uncles. these men have always been there for me and would do anything for me and my well being.

Good luck!

Siblings, friends, grandparents, uncles … it can be really anyone, doesn’t even have to be male! Pick someone who you care about and who cares about you. It’ll be your day, and don’t let anyone else ruin it for you.

Mother, grandparent, sibling, friend, or go it yourself because you don’t need anyone but you and your love to make this thing happen.

When my sister marries her fiancee the Fiance is in a similar situation. My parents have really taken her into our family as well, so, my sister will walk with our parents first, then my parents will go back up the aisle and walk back down this time escorting the fiancee (eee my future SIL!)
