I’ve thought I’d walk down the aisle by myself. But, it may be just the thing to have my daughter, my only child who is 21, walk down the aisle with me. She will be my maid of honor, and that would keep each of us from walking down the aisle alone. I love the thought of it.

When my mom remarried, she and her husband-to-be walked down the aisle together. It was very sweet!

I believe that my older son will be walking me down the aisle. Inkpad will be walking down with his boys and I think it’s been agreed that my daughter will walk down right before us with our son and take him to my husband.

My Dad walked me down the aisle the first time. I will be walking myself down the aisle this time.

The wedding for the first time was a family affair and most decisions were made by the family on both sides. This time, my Fiance and I are throwing the wedding so it will be less traditional and more casual. I think our families could care less whether or not they walk down the aisle. My Fiance and I have been living together long enough that they consider our wedding to be an after thought. At this point, they are mostly looking forward to events AFTER the wedding…ergo babies!

My brother will do it, if Fiance and I don’t decide instead to walk down together.  I honestly don’t know at this point… I’m really just beginning to figure out how the whole ceremony will go!  But IF we decide to have someone do it, it will be my big brother.  He’s 9 years older than me and was instrumental in my upbringing… after my parents divorced he pretty much raised me as my mom was always working or dating!  So yeah, he’s more like a Dad than my real Dad ever was and it would make the most sense.

I will be walking down the aisle either alone or with my grandma since my father has never been there for me.

My oldest male cousin is going to walk mw. My mom passed 11years ago and father has never been in my life. Mark is the male I am the closest to as well.

My dad walked me down the isle last time. I think this time I will walk myself. Or, with how our ceremony area is set up, I may just have Fiance meet me half way and walk together the remainder.  I haven’t decided. Although, the second options always feels like the right option when I think about it. 😉

I might have already responded to this, but I have decided to let my dad walk me down AGAIN.

My 5 year old son is walking me…. I’m thinking about my daughter walking me as well… she’s 6. I think the sentiment of them walking me and giving me away is touching.

I will be asking my dad again and if he says no for any reason other than he was in a huge accident and is now in traction then he doesn’t have to come. I may sound harsh but anyone who is not prepared to treat this as the most important day of my life with the same excitment given to a first time bride is just not welcome.

 

Our happiness out ranks anyone else’s dated views on how to appropriately celebrate a second wedding.

My 2 teenagers are walking me down the aisle. My daughter will be 14 and my son will be 17. Then they and my fiance’s son will stand with us as “attendants”. We want it to be about creating our new family.

My family won’t even be there due to religious differences…..so, my Fiance’s dad is going to walk me down. I felt honored that he even wanted to so I’m excited to have him walk me down.

Before I met Fiance i was engaged to a wonderful man whom I loved very deeply.  Tragically, he passed away in a drowning accident.  I was and still am very close to his dad and since my father passed away several years ago, I am going to ask him to walk me down the aisle.  He lives out of state and I want to ask him in person, so I will be asking him when I see him in a few weeks.  My mother is not happy about this – she wants to walk me down the aisle, but I’m not comfortable with that.  Yep, had to pull out the “it’s my wedding” with her on that one!
