I have an issue I am trying to figure out. My daughter who is 16 wants to be in my wedding but doesn’t wan to be a bridesmaid “because I don’t wanna be escorted by an oldman”. My father passed away 2 years ago, I have a brother that may walk me down the aisle not sure because he is so shy and it has crossed my mind to ask my daughter to escort me down the aisle and if she says yes what should she wear? Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

I really think this is a great idea! My daughter is going to be the flower girl since she is only 5.
I think this is a great way to incorporate her into the wedding without being a bridesmaid. And I think she should wear whatever makes he feel comfortable.

i think it would be really sweet!
my grandparents renewed their vows for their 50th anniversary, and my brother (oldest grandchild) walked her down the aisle. everyone thought it was a great touch.

Not odd at all! I have seen/ hear of many brides whose children walk them down the aisle. Its a very beautiful gesture of joining your families 🙂

With traditions if it is a male that gives you away they dress like the groom and groomsman, what kind of dress should she wear the same as the bridesmaids or a dress a little simpler in the same color.

I think it sounds amazing. As for a dress, maybe something in the same color as the bridesmaids, but different. It’ll give her some little say in your wedding and could be a nice shopping day for the two of you.

i think it’s a great idea, and i agree with TheFutureMcBride that she could wear something in the same color as the bridesmaids, but just a different style. that way, she would be tied into the “feel” of the wedding but wouldn’t look exactly like a bridesmaid.

I will hopefully have my daughter walk me down the aisle. FI will meet us halfway and then we will all walk up together.

I think it is wonderful having your daughter walk you down the aisle. What a special moment for both of you.

Wonderful idea…my son (13) is walking me down the aisle. I would have her dress similar to the BM (color) or other complimentary color. In my program I list my son as:
Bride is escorted by her son
I think she will be honored to do this. Unless she thinks you are too old to walk with. LOL

I think this is a sweet idea. How about a different version of the other BMs dresses? Maybe longer or the same style in a different color?

I think it would be sweet. I wanted my 11 year old son to walk me, but didn’t want to deal with the family drama that would ensue. It would be very touching.
