Sorry about your dad.  Is your mom an option?  Otherwise, I think your grandfather might be a good choice.

Do you have a closer bond with one of them? Or someone you look up to? Or, if you are close to your mom you can have her walk you down

Sorry that you’re going through these emotions – weddings tend to do that. Have the closest person who helped in any way to raise you walk you down the aisle. It can be a close family member or family friend, male or female, or anyone at all who helped shape your life.

I am so sorry for your loss.  I like @Schatzie821’s  idea of having your mom walk you down the aisle…however, if you’re looking for a male to accompany you, ask someone who is special to you.  I am sure your dad’s cousin or your grandfather would be honored to have that role 🙂

@deandrea.love:  I am very sorry about what you’re going through =( I had my mom walk me down the aisle. She is my best friend and was honored to do so. I wouldn’t have it any other way. People were very understanding about our situation (poor relationship with my father) and respected my decision. I’ve seen a lot where the bride is escorted by the best man as well, which I thought was interesting. Your grandfather would be so happy if you asked him!

@deandrea.love:  You could ask both people. That would honor each of them, and reaffirm how important they were in your father’s life, as well as your own.

If your mother is around and willing, I think it would be lovely to have her walk you in. You could also have the brother and grandfather at the same time. Also, as an alternative, you could simply walk in with your fiance and start your path to marriage right then.

@StuporDuck:  i really like this suggestion 🙂 they would both be honored and you would walk down the aisle with love and support on both sides.
