Hmm…can you have an usher or sibling push your father while you walk beside him? I don’t think your dress will be too much of a problem; you can stand a bit further away than you would if he were walking you and hold his hand without it looking awkward.

Can you have someone push him down the aisle? You can still hold his hand and he can absolutely walk you down the aisle, I don’t think your dress will be a problem at all.

@rrweddingday15:  I think the best idea is to ask him. He knows better than any of us what he can and can’t do. Who knows, perhaps he’s thought about it himself already.

Hm. I guess it depends.  Does his wheelchair fit next to you walking? If so, I wouldn’t worry too much. If it doesn’t physically fit width-wise, I’d honestly look for a new location if the chairs/benches can’t be moved.  Or is it that he has to use both arms to move the wheelchair forward and therefore can’t hold your hand/arm?  In that case, maybe someone could push the wheelchair while you hold his hand, or even better, maybe he could somehow rent or something an electric wheelchair that could be operated with one hand while he holds your hand with his other hand? 

*hugs* I’m sure there’s a way to make it work!!!

Can you meet him at the near end of the aisle where he kisses you and hands you off to your groom?

@rrweddingday15:  I went to a wedding where the bride’s father was in a wheelchair and her brother pushed him down the aisle beside her.

If the aisle isn’t wide enough then maybe he can wait at the front, but off to the side. Then you can walk up to the end of the aisle alone and he can meet you at the front of the aisle and “walk” the remaining few steps to the altar (or whatever there is) with you. Unless there are steps up to the altar? It’s hard to picture it without knowing what the venue looks like, but there must be a way.
