I’m an older encore, so my procession may not work for you… My son (22 YO) will be walking me down the aisle; both of my parents have passed on, and I have no siblings.

We’re walking in together. Why shouldn’t he get to have a big, fancy entrance, too?

I walked myself down the aisle.  Worked fine for me.

I was thinking of having my 12 year old son walk me down the isle. But I kind of like the idea of walking down together 🙂

I’m also an older encore whose parents have been gone many years.  My son-in-law is walking me down the aisle!  It was actually his idea and I think it will be great!  Originally I was just going to walk down by myself.  My daughter is my matron of honor.

I’m having my 17 year old son walk in with me and stand on my side.

I agree it feels a bit odd as a grown woman getting married for a second time to ask someone to walk her down the aisle.  I plan to ask my dad on Father’s Day if he would do me the honor of walking me down the aisle a second time.  I don’t plan to have the officiant ask who is giving me away; Dad will simply walk me down the aisle and pass me off to my FH then sit down.

I am having an old friend of mine and my older brother escort me. It’s my third time too!

my adult son walked me down the aisle.  it’s been the two of us for years so it was very fitting.

I’ll be walking in with my fiance.

And to answer your second question, my dad is still around and he will be attending the wedding, but it feels wrong to have my dad “give me away” when I’ll be 30 years old and getting married for a second time.
