    Phew, That’s a long post! I can only imagine how you feel. You did not mention how you think your father would reacr if your mother walks you instead of him? What about having both of them walk you?

    ya I’m there.. sorta. My dad suddenly up and left my mom after 30 years of marriage for a woman who left him almost right away. He has done and said anything he could to make himself look good(we know better) and her look like sh*t. My mom is my rock too, she has been there through everything no matter what it took. Slowly I started talking to my dad again but still the thought of him waking down the isle bothered me. So my fiance and I chose that we will go down the isle together. We do everything else together now why wouldnt we go to get married together. I realize my solution is very untraditional but it suits us. I can only suggest that you choose the situation that works best for you. Could they both walk you down the isle? I think a parent earns the right to walk you down and it soulds like that right is more leaning towards your mom, but thats just my 2cents..

    I’m having my friend walk me down the aisle… he always used to joke around and tell people he was my dad because he looked out for me (even though he is 4 years younger than I am)… well now he gets to prove it! hehe

    The way you describe your mom, it sounds like you would be happiest if she walked you.  I could go either way with having your Dad join you two.  Ultimately, you get to choose!  Whichever decision you make, some people might say “huh, that’s not quite expected or traditional”  but if they really love and support you, they really shouldn’t say anything harsher than that.

    @MsBryt: While my situation is a bit different since my father is not invited, I still have to decide between my mom, going alone, or having my grandpa, uncle, or very close family friend walk me down. My Maid/Matron of Honor put it well (as did @barndance:) stating that: those who think it’s a bit strange will know that they’re probably not privy to the whole story, and that I made the best choice for myself. Those who weren’t selected to walk me down the aisle will not be offended, they will love and support me and just be glad that I’m making the choice to marry my Fiance and celebrate with them all.

    I’d take some time to think of what it means to YOU. Don’t do it for someone else, or choose A over B because if you didn’t then A would be more upset than B would be. It’s a time to celebrate your love and your future, and everyone will likely be supportive of you and harbor no hurt feelings. Go with your heart and what you envision on your big day.
