u can always have your Dad walk you half way and then both of them the rest of the way. My dad will be giving me away if we decide to have a ceremony and not elope.

its actually customary i thought in some religious ceremonies – and you can always have them both walk you down the aisle, and then have your mother sit down and have your father do the “who gives this woman” part? (if youre doing that part?)

I havent really thought about it yet! Glad you brought it up! I think I will probably have both walk me down!! My parents both mean alot to me & if it wasnt for them I wouldnt be able to have the wedding I am having!

Both my parents walked with me down the aisle. My mom was on my left side and my dad was on my right side.

I’m having both my parents.  not only is it customary in my religion but I feel like it’s only right as my parents are both equally responsible for who I am today and for the amazing life I’ve had.  I love them both dearly and want to make both of them feel special.

I struggle with the thought of who will walk me down the aisle. I’m not very close to my dad but if I asked my mum to walk me I know he would be upset. I wanted to walk down the aisle with Fiance but he didn’t like that idea, he wants me to walk down towards him (I really don’t want a super traditional wedding but hey, if that’s what’s going to make him happy and I guess there will be some awesome photos of his face when he sees me). I might just walk myself and have my parents and fi’s parents give their blessing for us to be married. (this way its less like I’m owned by my father)

theres another solution if you want to honor your mother but dont want them to walk you down the aisle – in catholic ceremonies, they do the prayer to Virgin Mary (the ultimate “mother”) im taking that a step back (FH is catholic im not) and having an honor moment for both my mother and FI’s mom, by having the minister say a few words about the works of mothers, and how they shape and mold us etc, then handing them both bouquets along with my grandmother while ave maria plays.

My mother and my step father are walking me down the aisle.  I was always afraid of how silly that would look until I realized (thank you weddingbee) that lots of people do it, phew!  I just couldn’t figure out a different way, my mother is my best friend and has been the best mom ever, and my step father has been a great guy the last few years, I wanted to honor them both.

Both of my parents are walking me down the aisle.  It’s also customary in a jewish wedding, but I loved the idea anyway.  They both played a part in raising me and dad gets the dance alone so why not include mom too.

i’m definitely having both parents walk me down the aisle.  i’ve been set on this from the get-go with my wedding planning.  i even made that a requirement in a church… had to have a large enough aisle for three people to walk down, side by side!
