- Wedding: May 2012
Our wedding is a month away and I’m having trouble deciding what to do for the ceremony. For background info, my parents are divorced and have been since I was 3 yo. I grew up mostly with my dad as a single parent and am a hugeee Daddy’s girl. That being said, my mom and I have grown closer throughout the years.
Originally I was tossing around the idea of having both of them walk me down the aisle. However, the more I think about it I think I’m leaning towards just my Dad. I hadn’t ever shared this idea, cause I didn’t want anyone to get their feelings hurt until I decided for sure. However, I got a call from my mom a few weeks ago about this “funny story” how my grandma thinks both of them should walk me down the aisle. I told her I’d think about it and that I hadn’t really thought about how we’d handle it yet. She asked again last week what I decided and when I told her my solution, I could tell she was disappointed and obviously wanted to participate in walking me down the aisle. On the other hand, I know my dad would be hurt/offended if it wasn’t just us.
My compromise was to have my Dad walk me down most of the aisle, stop at my mom (who will get escorted by my baby brother) and give her a hug, and have them both walk me up to my Fiance and “give me away.” But she said it seemed like an afterthought.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I feel like either way someone’s going to get their feelings hurt which is whyyyy I didn’t mention anything in the first place!
