There have been some posts on this topic, but none recently. We have not set a date or choose a location, but the issue of walking down the isle has been something I’ve thought about for a very LONG time! Both my mother and father have passed, no grandparents, no uncles/aunts. I do have 3 half siblings but because of the age difference (15 and 24 years older than me) we have not been very close for most of my life. I have not even spoken to one brother in over a year and ever since my father passed, things have been very strange between myslef and the other. Fi and I are older, and have been our own and lived together. We don’t have kids yet. So basically here is not a go-to person to walk me down the isle. In my dreams I always thought it woud be great to get married in front of a staircase that is split (like in the movie Titanic or Beauty and the Beast – I know, I’m a romantic), so Fiance and I start on opposite sides and walk towards each other down stairs and then meet at a landing and then walk together down the ramaining staris together towards the guests. I hope that makes sense. All that being said, I don’t know where I am going to find a venue like that so do you have some other options? I like the idea of us approaching the officiant together, but don’t really want him to walk me down the isle in the traditional manner. Thanks.

if you’re at a traditional church with a traditional aisle, what if he starts at the alter, meets you half way, and then he turns and you walk down the second portion together? I like that because it is symbolic (you walked alone, found eachother, and now you walk the rest of the way together in life) and also it would probably be really beautiful for the people in the pews to watch you two approach eachother.
Either that or walk yourself down- plenty of brides do that!

I don’t know if you’ve found your venue, but a lot of churches (or at least some churches) have two aisle…you could each walk down an aisle at the same time. Or if you are setting your own chairs up, you could do it that way.

To get married in a Catholic church in my area, you HAVE to walk to walk with your SO. I’ve seen it several times and its very nice. Its a nice sentiment of walking in together. Traditionally I’ve seen them come from opposite back corners of the church and might at the end of the aisle and then walk together.

Great idea! I’ve never seen it but love the idea! Thanks.

I love that idea! To make it more complicated, his mom has also passed, so he has nobody to walk down the isle either (I guess he can excort his father. Actually maybe that would be nice…he escorts his father (the only parent between the two of us) and once his father sits, he comes back for me and I start down the isle. I like it!

Hi loggers. I have a very situation and my Fiance is meeting me in the middle and we are taking the next steps to our future together. His parents and my mom love it. We are older and have been together for 6 years so it fits. Good luck with your day.

I’m so glad to see this posted. I’m not engaged yet, but I SO dread walking down the aisle and how we’ll do it. (The only parent we have between us is my mom.)
I want us to walk together, but he wants to see me walk down to him. I really like the idea of him meeting you, then walking the rest of the way together. I might suggest this to my SO. 🙂

I really like the ideas of him meeting you half way or walking with you!
