    I’m so sorry to hear about your father. And what a horrible time for this to happen too! *internet hugs*

    I think it’s more than okay to walk down the aisle by yourself. I also love beachbride1216’s idea about a song and a reading. Maybe you could also leave an empty chair where your Dad would be seated and place his picture there? I’ve seen some bees place a small picture of their deceased fathers into a charm they fixed onto their bouquet so their Dads still “walked with them”, in a way, it was really moving.

    It’s absolutely OK. I walked down the aisle by myself…and my dad’s alive. I made my decision, though, because we aren’t close (neither of them were “good” parents by any stretch) and he has trouble with his knees and walking. I think he fussed about it a bit, but quickly realized that he couldn’t get up and down that much at the wedding.

    I am sorry to hear, though, that the reason for this decision is much more unfortunate in your case. I’m sorry to hear about your dad.

    No one “owns” you, so yes of course it is!
