Hi Bees 🙂
My mom and step father just got a divorce. Ive never been very close with my step dad and after the divorce proceedings I definately dont feel close. We have a weird split family. I have 5 half sisters and 2 half brothers. Im really close with all my sisters, not so much with my brothers. I am hesitant to have my mom walk me down the aisle because we dont have a tight knot relationship either and Im afraid of her/I/us becoming overly emotional. So as I was tossing all these things around in my head…I thought it seemed somewhat fitting to have my twin sister give me away. She is my Matron of Honor, but we have been together through it all. Is this weird? I figured the best man could accompany my fiance to the front of the church and my twin can walk me and then go to her position. What do you think?

I think that is a wonderful idea but, I think overall it may hurt your mom. Could both your twin and your mom walk you down?

I think you need to make sure your mom wouldn’t be overly hurt by it, but overall I think it’s an fabulous idea.

I think its a great idea as well! are the rest of your Groomsmen escorting BMs down the aisle?

Yes, I think the rest of the groomsman would escort the bridesmaids down the aisle. The other idea was for me to walk alone and my fiance meet me halfway up the aisle to walk me down. Im really not that touchy feely close to my mom, so thats why I am not super enthused on asking her. Of course I dont want any hurt feelings, but…..

Unless my dad asks, I plan to walk myself down the aisle. But I have already been married before so I feel weird having anybody “give me away” when I am a grown adult.

the person to walk you down the aisle, is your own awesome decision and it def should be someone you feel close too.

I love that idea & think it would be really special if she gave you away. If that’s what you want, that’s what you should have!

i think it is a wonderful idea. my adult son walked me down the aisle. he was also my man of honour so he just took his place after giving me away.
it was very special and i think in your case it will be too.
now, how do you think your mother will feel about this? is there something else that she can be in charge of that day so she doesn’t feel left out? greeting guests, read a poem, say grace, etc.
