- Wedding: March 2012
I don’t know if any of you out there are having a similar problem as me. I just thought I’d share/vent.
My father passed away 3 years ago and so I will not get to have him walk me down the aisle and give me away. We were so close and it kills me that he won’t be there. My mom really wants me to let her give me away instead, but we aren’t really that close.I feel like if he can’t do it then no one should.
If any of you are having the same issue, this is what I came up with, let me know what you think.
We are having our pictures taken before the wedding so we can spend as much time at our reception as possible. I am going to have only me, my mom, my fiance, and his parents present. I am going to let my mom walk me to my fiance and do a kind of “give me away” thing there. Then for the ceremony, I want my husband to be to meet me halfway so we can walk down the aisle together. He is the man in my life now and I’m happy to have him fill in where my father cannot.
