I THINK I will be walking alone.  This is my second time getting married, so I told my dad it is up to him if he wants to do it again.

I’m planning on walking down the aisle alone.  My dad passed away in 2010.  I love my mom, but I’m an independant 35-year-old, and I kind of like the symbolism of walking on my own, but maybe with a hug for my mom at the end of the aisle.

I walked alone. It looked absolutely fine. Not one single person commented to me about it. My mom was really worried it would look “awkward,” and it was a bit of a battle for me, but I did it. I think it’s a completely cool thing to do, and I also think the guests don’t really think about it that much.

ETA: by “battle for me” I mean that my mom and I had several arguments about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ The actual walking by myself felt completely natural and comfortable.

I might have to walk alone.. My brother is in med school and might not be able to travel home for the wedding ๐Ÿ™ I think I might just have my Fiance meet me half way.. that seems like a very sweet entrance

I am walking alone. My 28, my parents live nearby and are alive and well, just not involved in my life. I could have asked my brother, or grandfather, but I’ve been on my own since I was 18 so I think it means the most to me to do the walk alone, I’ve brought myself this far! I’m worried about his side of the family and friends who don’t know me or my situation, and I worry people will wonder where the hell my parents are and why I am not having a father/daughter dance, but they’ll get over it.

I hope. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am walking alone. My father recently passed away but I was already planning on walking alone. It is very representative of my independence and my family struggles.

I’m going down the aisle alone. I’ve always seen it that way, ever since I was a little girl. He’s still alive, I just don’t rely on him that way. He’ll get a father/daughter dance though, I’m not that cold.

It’s my first marriage and Fiance and I have been together for 8 1/2 years, living together for all but 2 of them. Not living on the same side of the continent as my parents.

Haven’t done it yet though, sorry! Wish I had a story for you.

I’m probably walking alone! My dad has a medical condition and trips a lot when he walks. He’s brought up being nervous about walking me down the aisle many times. I’ll let him decide what he wants to do. I’m not gonna lie, I’m nervous about walking alone!

I walked down the aisle alone. It was good because I could totally focus on my fella at the altar and I didn’t have to coordinate my steps with anyone else. I might’ve walked a bit quickly though. Here’s a guest pic.

A friend of mine had her dad walk her down the aisle, but when the preacher asked “Who gives this woman to be with this man?” she answered, “She gives herself freely.” It was a pretty cool blend of traditional and unique.
