    @sunshinebee:  I didn’t vote in the poll because really for your, only you can decide.


    I’m 31 and a 2nd timeer, (my Fiance 1st wedding) I didn’t have a wedding the first time, just at the court house. so I am having my dad walk me, but not ‘give me’. I was all set to do it alone, but once we actually started planning I changed my mind

    I say walk alone, but not because it’s your second wedding. Because of this, ” It feels sort of liberating and independant to walk alone to meet my husband to be.” You deserve that feeling, the aisle isn’t that long anyway 😉

    You can walk in with your FI! It’s a Swedish tradition to do so, to show that the couple are both going into the marriage with joy and that you’re equal. My Fiance is Canadian, but when I told him about this he was immediately on board as he liked it more than the “giving away” option.

    I was an encore bride this past August and I had both my mom and dad walk me up the aisle. While I love and adore my parents and have some amazing photos with them (see below, the one with just me and my dad is a personal favorite), I kind of wish I had walked up the aisle to my husband alone. I don’t exactly regret my choice, but I feel that walking up unaccompanied would have better represented me and my personality. Go with your heart, and good luck!

    @sunshinebee:  What about walking in together?  H and I did that! As mentioned above, it’s the norm in Sweden and H is of Swedish decent.  I am 36.  My dad has passed away 3 months before we got married.

    @sienna76:  That is a FANTASTIC idea. I think I’ll run with it. My dad also passed away and my step dad is not very supportive of the wedding so I see no point in obliging him at all. I am relieved to know there are other options. Thanks so much.
