OMG me neither!!!! The minute our officiant mentioned this in our consult I said no waaay…He said he could say something else like “Who presents this woman to this man” or “Who brings this bride today”…Those sound better, IMO.

We used… “Who presents Catalina to Gerald today?” Response: “Her mother and I do”

We had a Catholic wedding and they don’t ever use that line apparently, so it wasn’t an issue for us.  I don’t like that line either though!  I think you can skip it altogether if you want, but I’ve also heard things like “who gives their blessing for this marriage” (or something similar, can’t remember the exact wording) and then both sets of parents would say “we do”.

@Jen51287:  My fiance and I will be walking down together so no one is giving anyone away!

@Jen51287 we are having the pastor say – C and C, before all witnesses who are gathered here today, are you ready and willing to enter into marriage today. Yes and yes. let us begin

Just ask the oficiant to remove that line.

We just removed the line, not a big deal.
