    My dad passed away a few years before our wedding so I had my mom walk me down the aisle.

    My father is out of my life and my grandfathers are deceased. I am not close enough to any other male in my life to have hm walk me down the aisle. My mom does not want to do it-she feels awkward. I am instead walking down with my daughter who is also our flower girl. She will be seven

    My niece is getting married and has asked her brother to do the honor of walking her down the aisle.  She said if he couldn’t do it (he was joining the marines) she’d have my dad do it.

    My dad passed away when I was 19. I think I’m going to walk myself down the aisle. Or maybe I can do it with my mom.

    My fiance and I will be walking in together.  It’s our own tradition!

    A family friend walked me down the aisle. My dad passed away when I was 20 and neither my mom nor I wanted her to walk me down the aisle. She had her own role in our ceremony.

    My stepdad passed away 15 years ago and my mom and I don’t speak so I was going to walk myself down the aisle…no big deal.  But literally as we were getting ready to start the ceremony (on the beach so it was a little untraditional) the wedding planner didn’t know who the old man with us was (my husbands father) so she assumed it was my dad and told him to get over next to me.  He ended up walking me down the aisle and I think it was really great and made him very happy so I’m glad it went the way it did because he seemed so proud at that moment.

    My dad passed away about nine years ago, so I had my brother walk me down the aisle.  For me, it was the next best thing to having my dad do it.  We also did a brother-sister dance at the reception.

    My brother is doing it.  I thought about having my mom walk me but she wants to actually see me walk down the aisle, but can’t do that if she’s walking with me!  She’s going to meet my brother part of the way down and finish the walk with me.
