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.
