I wouldn’t just pick someone to be a stand in for such a special thing. It sounds like you love your father very much, and it’s important to you for him to walk you down the aisle, so I wouldn’t have just anyone walk you down in his place.


Fingers crossed that your dad will be there!!!!

if you’re comfortable with that, than go for it. only you know what’s right for you. personally i wouldn’t want to because i hate being in the spot light, and i’m counting on being surrounded by my parents when walking down the isle so people wont be able to see me.

Aw, D.Marie *hugs* so sorry to hear that your dad has to get his knee replaced which might prevent him from walking you down the aisle. I think it’s perfectly common for brides to walk themselves down the aisle. You should only have someone walk you if you feel that they’re truly special to you, and if don’t think your uncle can fill that important role then don’t feel compelled to ask him. Best of luck with your decision 🙂

if he is in a wheelchair you could have someone push him next to you….

I would suggest your mother.  A friend of mine had her mom walk her down the aisle.  It was very touching.  If not your mother, I say just walk alone or maybe you and the groom can walk down together.  I know, walking down with the groom before the vows isn’t traditional, but he is an important male figure in your life.

I don’t think you should rush to find a replacement. Maybe if he can’t go down the aisle in his wheelchair he can meet you at the end of the aisle to still give you away. 

I hope your dad’s surgery goes well and he recovers quickly.
