So I don’t have a great relationship with my dad (and to be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of the whole “giving away” sentiment), so walking down the aisle with just him is not an option for me.
Both culturally and sentimentally, my FI wants to walk down the aisle with both his parents.
I always thought it was a little awkward walking down an aisle three across. Not to mention, I kinda feel like this hides the bride/dress in photos and for guests.
Would it be weird to have my parents walk down the aisle just ahead of me and then walk down solo? Anyone else do this? Any regrets one way or another?

@RexManningDay: I don’t think it sounds weird at all, they ca walk in front of you if that’s what you want. But if you feel like walking alone for whatever reason, I def think you should, it’s your choice.. as you said, you don’t really like the idea of solely your dad giving you away, maybe you should just this one go? Do you think their feelings would be hurt, let them know this gently

You should do what you’re comfortable with. FI is walking in with both his parents (Jewish tradition) and I am only walking in with my dad, while my mom will be escorted in by my brother just prior to the wedding party entrance.
