I think it’s fine! One of my cousins got married after she’d had a kid and her dad still walked her down the aisle. You don’t have to do the whole “giving away” part if you don’t want to. He could just walk with you.

I think it is your wedding and if you want your Dad to walk you down the aisle then he can! Or if you want your sons, or if you want to do it alone. I think there is no reason if you like you Dad for him to not to!

I think it’s fine. No one’s dad is really giving them away in teh traditonal sense anymore anyway. it’s more like he’s there standing with you to show his support for your decision and his love for you.

I  was in the same situation as you together 8yrs and just two boys.  Instead of asking who gives this women to this man they asked both families a question and they said we do (my family and Darling Husband family).  I didn’t want my boys to walk me down the aisle as they belong to the both of us so they weren’t giving me away either.  When I get home from work I will look up what the minister said in our ceremony I have it at home if you would like?

I think your Dad walking you down the aisle is something EXTREMELY special between a Father and Daughter, even if they aren’t super close. I think it still would mean a lot to him. πŸ™‚

I left out my dad walked me down the aisle but they didn’t ask who gives this woman to this man he kissed me on the cheek and Darling Husband took my hand.   Then my first post follows

My dad walked me down the aisle.  Can’t remember what she said and both my parents and FI’s parents stood and said we do.  Its on my personal email at home can’t access hotmail at work.  I will send it to you it was actually really nice.

Based on what you’ve told us here, I can’t think of a single reason your dad shouldn’t walk you down the aisle. Let’s be honest, having children is only the outward evidence of what many of us have been doing for a long time. Smile If that disqualified us from walking with our dads, well a lot more dads would be sitting the big moment out. If any of your guests think it’s inappropriate, their opinions are truly not worth your time.
