I do not have a father and my mother will be walking down the aisle with my grandmother. Originally my uncle was going to walk me down the aisle but he had a stroke 2 weeks ago and is paralyzed. We were talking to FI’s parents about the situation so they could say a prayer for him at church. We had mentioned that he was supposed to be walking me down the aisle. Future Father-In-Law asked if he could walk me down. He said he would be honored. We are not having the whole “who gives the woman away?” thing. It would simply be walking me down. Do you think it would be odd to have him walk me down? He told me he thinks of me as a daughter, not daughter in law and that he would love to walk me down the aisle.

I think that would be lovely! It’s very sweet of him to offer and to think of you as a daughter already. It’s YOUR (and your Fiancés’) day. Nothing will be WEIRD. My mother was walked down the aisle by both of her parents. It’s about what’s going to make you happy.

I think it was a wonderful suggestion by him, and would be very nice.

I am sorry to hear about your uncle, and I hope that he’ll still be able to be part of your day! I think it would be really sweet. My F-grand-FIL might walk me down the aisle, so I don’t think it’s weird at all!

Whatever makes you feel comfortable. I think it would be really kind. My Dad’s father walked my mom down the aisle after her own dad had a heart attack a few days before the wedding. You could also walk with your mother and grandmother– one on each arm. I’m sorry to hear about your uncle, I hope he recovers well.

Sorry to hear about your uncle, I think that was very sweet of your Future Father-In-Law to say that! I don’t think it would be weird at all. If you are comfortable with him doing it (he sure is!) then go for it!

@MrsPinkPeony: I think it would be nice but I would just be worried that people might look at it like its odd.

@MrsPinkPeony: That’s what I’m interested in. If you absolutely need to walk down with someone I guess he might be a good choice.
