So my husband and I were married just the 2 of us on the beach with plans to have a “celebration of love” on our one year anniversary for all of our friends and family to attend. It will pretty much be like a normal wedding, Im wearing a wedding gown, will have ceremony but will be more about our love for each other instead of traditional wording…ect. The one thing I MUST have tho is my dad walking me down the isle, but since he won’t be giving me away I need some ideas of what can be said or how to make it just as significant. Any suggestions?

Well, I can say that I don’t want to be “given away”, so I’ve been looking for creative wording that offers the same sentiment without using that phrase. I’ve come up with something like this:
Who walks with this woman to represent her family’s love and support?
Maybe somethins along those lines could work for you?

@MercuryDarlin: Well, you could simply be escorted by your dad/parents during the processional, give him/them a hug and kiss when you reach the end of the aisle, and take your husband’s hand. Most of the weddings I’ve been to are Catholic ceremonies, in which the bride isn’t “given away” (i.e. no words to that effect are said), but she’s nearly always escorted by her father or both parents, who then shake hands with/hug the groom before sitting down. Something like that, while the music is still playing, could work for you.

Well I want more than just an escort, I guess maybe it’s because I will always be Daddy’s little girl even tho I am 33, or a southern thing (I’m from Alabama too). I am the only girl and the first born and my dad and I are very close. I just want to involve him as much as possible.
@TriciaAnddazzling I do love that idea…
