I don’t know how to tell me father that I don’t want him to walk me down the aisle. We have never had a good relationship because he has always favored my younger sister. They don’t speek anymore and I talk to him like once every few months but never about anything important. To top it off he does not like my fianc<em style=”margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-image: none; box-sizing: border-box; background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);”>é. I just don’t feel <em style=”margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-image: none; box-sizing: border-box; background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0);”>comfortable having him walk me down the aisle, I want my grandfather -mom’s dad (who is paying for my dress) do it then my father who has contributed nothing.

Just tell him straight out! I’m sure he will understand if you are not that close. I am not close to my father at all so much so that when the time comes he will not even be invited to the wedding at all (I want a very small intimite wedding)

I think it’s becoming more common for other arrangements to be made especially when brides and their dads aren’t close, so are you sure he’s even thinking that that’s what’s going to happen? I’d probably just drop it in conversation that your grandfather will be walking you, I wouldn’t make a big thing of it. It’s your choice. And especially if he doesn’t like your fiance, I think you’re making the right one – to me, the parents or other older family members walking the bride is symbolic of their approval of the match.

Mrs.Hunz: Just tell him. I know it’s easier said than done but you’re not obliged to have him do it. Tell him sooner rather than later as the longer you leave it, the more awkward it will feel. It’s very common these days to do things the ‘non-traditional’ way and that’s ok! I’m having both my dad and my step-dad so i’m a non-traditionalist too 🙂
