    I don’t know how I would feel about seeing both the bride and groom walk in together.  I kind of like the idea that you enter the wedding separately, and leave as a unit.  But I know you said you’re not having a traditional ceremony, so you could kind of turn it around and walk in together as a symbol that you’re coming to the marriage as a pair already.

    I’m walking down the aisle with my groom too. Personally, I hate the idea of someone giving me away. Fathers gave daughters away when they were viewed as property or a trade of some sort. Since I don’t consider myself property, I want to walk with my groom. I think it symbolizes that both people are there on their own free will and entering the commitment together.

    However, I also understand the girls who opt to be given away for ceremonial and sentimental value. It’s whatever you feel comfortable with!

     

    We’re also getting our pictures done beforehand! I didn’t want our guests to wait while we took pictures and I didn’t want to feel rushed 🙂

    We’re walking together half way. Since it’s a jewish wedding, I want my Fiance to have the opportunity to do the traditional walk down the aisle w/ his parents. I’ll be entering solo, then we’ll meet me at the turn of our L shaped aisle and we’ll walk the rest together. I think it’s a cool idea to walk w/ your future hubby! Why not spend every possible moment together on that day!

    i LOVE the idea of walking halfway with my Fiance.  i wouldn’t want the whole way just because i am a sucker for the big “moment” when the bride enters and have been waiting for that moment my whole life.  i am also choosing not to have father walk me for many reasons i will not get into here (i am thinking of having my parents walk together so they are both included in the ceremony, i just don’t want my dad to walk ME…similar reasoning to PP about i am not property to be given away)….and when i first got engaged someone told me about the idea of walking halfway and i got SO excited. since then i kinda forgot about it….but now you got me thinking again and i will ask my Fiance what he thinks/feels.

    That sounds great, and I considered doing it! Instead, my groom walked in with his parents, and then I walked in with my parents. That way we were (kinda) doing the same thing, but he also got to see me walk down the aisle.

    @doingathing:  Agree.  It was nice to have him watch me come down the aisle, and see him there at the end and just have that eye contact for a little bit, it was a really special couple moments that I’m glad we had. 

    It’s traditional from where my hubby’s from for the groom to be walked down the aisle by a parent so we weren’t really breaking any mold.

    In many countries outside of the US that is exactly what happens! In my culture, the bride and the groom first see eachother when they meet to receive a blessing from their parents. I am actually considering this myself.
