    sarahbear22 :  I voted for self but what about your mom? Mr father passed away so my mom walked me down. Originally they both were going to. 

    But perhaps in your situation you could have your mom walk you down? Perhaps dad and step dad could both be at the end of the aisle (Like one on left and one on right. Then your mom could sit next to your stepdad after walking you down? Then you hug both dad’s and go to your husband to be?

    I think you and your fiance should walk down the aisle together. You can have a brief “ta da!” moment when you first walk out, but I think it would be sweet to walk towards marriage together.

    I vote for your Mom. I assume she’s been a constant presence, in your life?

    If both men would be uncomfortable, and you don’t want to walk yourself down the aisle, my vote is for your dad.  Your step-dad will understand.

    My parents divorced when I was 18, both are happily re-married now and I have good relationships with my parents and step parents. We are not having a traditional wedding ourselves, but if we were I would have my dad walk me down the aisle, even though I’m actually closer to my stepdad now because of geography.

    Maybe find a way that they can each make a toast or be involved some other way?

    FI is meeting me halfway. I LOVE the sentiment and actually dislike the tradition of giving women away as chattle, so this was something important for me.

    I sure AF wouldnt let someone walk me down the aisle who told me I was dead to them.

    My Dad died two months before I got married. My Mom wanted her and my sister to walk me down, but in my mind that was my Dad’s job. So I walked alone and then my Mom stood at the end to give me away.

    I cried during the rehersal, but didn’t regreat it for a second on the wedding day.

    Do what you feel is right. Who will meet you at the end to give you away?
