summerbride0815:  I did it.  My parents are divorced, and I realized that with the father-daughter dance, my mom didn’t have much of a role in my wedding.  I wanted to do it to recognize her for being such a big part of my life.

Both my parents will be walking me down the aisle. My fiancee’s parents will also be walking him down the aisle

My family and social circle have been doing this for decades. I’ve always throught it sexist and outdated, for the bride to walk with only her father, or another male family member. I haven’t heard anyone ask “who gives this bride,” in decades, either.

I follow a same-sex couple on YouTube that got married this past May and each one had both parents walk with them. Also, at my friend’s first wedding she had both her father and stepfather walk her down.

My sister did and I will too. My mom is equally as important to me as my dad so I don’t see why I wouldn’t.

my mom and dad will both be walking me down the aisle. They never married but each play a huge role in my life so I wanted both of them to walk me down the aisle and I know it means a lot of my mom as well.

Yes, both of my parents walked me down the aisle.  I felt it was important to include both of my parents and it was really nice.  I’m so glad I did it.

Both of my parents walked me. They both raised me and I wanted to honor that. It was even more meaningful to me because they are divorced but they were willing to do that for me. I treasure those photos.
