I hate it when people do “left, together, right, together”.

I think you should just walk slowly enough to take it all in and let everyone see you, but not so slow that it is awkward.

I never thought about this before! I think it is a good question. I would think you would walk right and left to the pace of the music being played. Not too slow, not too fast, whatever makes you feel comfortable. But that is just MOH. 🙂

I practiced with my dad a bunch! Not silly at all 🙂 I was nervous about the left, together, right, together so we walked normally.  It was a comfortable pace and I didn’t have to think about what to do with my feet while concentrating on everything else!

I never thought about this. The only part I think about is the sheer horror of having everyone starring at me!! I most definitely won’t do the right foot together, left foot together thing though.

 All you do is walk normally. Maybe a bit slower than normal, but definitely not that two step thing.

I’d just walk normally, none of the left together, right together business. I think it looks a little awkward and since you don’t normally walk that way, you’ll have to concentrate really hard so you don’t trip!

Be sure to be conscious about walking slow, though. I’ve definitely seen brides charge down the aisle at warp speed and they don’t realize how fast they went until they see the video later!

Do any of you know about this “kicking out” thing? I had my last fitting last week and the seamstress told me I had to kick out a little with each foot as I walk (due to floor length gown). What?? I don’t get it…I tried it and she said, “Nope-not right!” and proceeded to show me again…does this even matter? I have no clue. I don’t want to look like I’m marching! LOL

I was a Rainbow Girl (daughter organization of Masons and Eastern Star) and we were taught to “square our corners”. Once in a while I demo this for someone and they practically die laughing. No, not doing that OR step together step at wedding!

Um ok.. so I was going to do the elegant walk. Slow and thoughtful, take it all in. Dude the moment those doors opened. I couldn’t breathe I was so freaking happy! I remember looking around at my friends and family. Looking up and seeing my husband and instantly crying. I remember just wanting to race down the aisle to him, I didn’t care about graceful or elegant. I do remember thinking, Oh my god.. I am so happy. Oh dear I am about to cry, please don’t do awful ugly crying face. Keep it together.. fuck! I am crying…

I think the right foot together left foot together thing was tought up just so people would walk slowly.  There is no specific rules, I think just take your time with it.

@rday Yep, it felt very awkward..I was just curious if others are doing that, because nobody mentioned it here on this thread. I seriously don’t want to look funny walking! I think I’ll just walk super slow. 🙂

This is really funny — my Dad and I were joking around (in Home Depot of all places) last weekend and I looped my arm through his and said that we should practice walking and I started doing the right foot/left foot together thing and he just stared at me and said, “please tell me you aren’t going to walk down the aisle like that”…

It was really funny…Laughing
