Why don’t you just walk alone? Or have Fiance meet you halfway?

If you are comfortable walking by yourself, I would do that. No one HAS to give you away these days.

Have your brother walk you down half way and they have your fiance meet you half way and walk you up the rest.

When I got married the first time my father had passed away 5 months previously and I didn’t have a close relationship with my step dad (I actually didn’t like him) so I chose to walk alone. That way I didn’t offend anyone by choosing one person over another but if anyone asked I would have said “I could only picture my dad walking me down the aisle and since he’s not here I’ll honor him by walking myself” and I felt comfortable with that decision.

I know it’s a hard decision and I wish you good luck.

I plan on walking alone.. not close with my father at all.. and i think my mom would rather get to watch me walk down the aisle than actually walk with me.

I would walk alone and have your Fiance meet you halfway. My Aunt did that.

Now that I’m getting married for the second time my 25 year old son will walk me… no, actually he said “I’m going to push you”…lol Here take her, I don’t want to have to take care of her…lol!!!

I’m looking forward to it since my father didn’t get the chance.

I don’t think it would be wierd if your brother walked you down the aisle, but if you’re uncomfortable with that, then walk alone!  I think that’s totally acceptable.

My wedding was today, and I was walked down the aisle by my husband’s father. Whom I met just yeasterday, since his parent live in a different country and came for the wedding. All I know for sure that if i wasn’t walked by anyone I would trap and fall on the mini-bridge, it was too steep and my heels were too high.

A couple of things, no one HAS to walk you down the aisle.  

My father died when I was 12.  My brother gave me away, simply because I got married in 1982 and it wasn’t really “cool” for a mother to give you away (realizing that has changed).

It was sweet and since my brother is 5 years older than me, it was okay.

It is completely okay to go down the aisle alone.

Do what feels okay for YOU and YOU alone.

Do you have any Grandfathers that are still alive? That’s who I’d have it it were possible, or I’d walk alone.
