@Gypsybarbi:  It’s your wedding so you need to do whatever you want.  But remember for every action there is a reaction.  Your father will probably be upset.  If you are happy to deal with that, then just go ahead and ask your FFIL.  Best of luck and lots of happiness to you and your future husband & family.

I think instead of using your FI’s dad you should either think of going without someone to walk you down, use a friend of yours (or a brother), or grin and bear it with your father.

If you decide to do the last one – just know that his involvement will be minimal and you won;t have to spend a significant amount of alone time with him. But I do think he would (regardless of how he shows it) be honored if you asked him. It may even be the beginning of you guys finding some common ground to work with in the future.

If you do any of the others, don’t feel obligated to be traditional just for the sake of it. Going without or using someone other then your father isn’t even that far off for what some modern brides are doing.

Why don’t you walk in together with your husband to be? That’s the way my FI and I will do it, to show that we’re equals and that I’m not being given away – which would feel silly to me since I’ve lived away from my parents for more then 10 years.

@Gypsybarbi:  I’d walk alone or with a friend.
