    Well, it’s only breaking one kind of tradition.  There are traditions that DO include both parents walking the bride down the aisle.

    So, I think that if you and your parents all like the idea, go for it!

    I personally thought it would be rude to just ask my dad. Tradition is that my father “owns me” and is the only one who can give me away. That was so not ok in my book. I wanted to honor both of my parents so they walked me together.

    By the way, make sure to tell your venue that you need a 3 person wide aisle. It’s something that nearly slipped my mind until I was at a friend’s wedding where her mother had to walk behind her Frown

    I had my brother lead while my mother walked me down the aisle (I have no relationship with my father). No one was upset that I broke ‘tradition’!

    @mariana17:  I actually love this idea. My cousin had both of her parents walk her down the aisle and it was really beautiful. If you are close with both of your parents, then they should both have the honor of walking you down the aisle/

    I think it’s great. It’s what they actually do in my culture, and that’s what I did. Had it not already been the norm I would’ve asked my mom anyway since I am closer with her. 

    This is how we did it.

    I had both of my parents walk me down the aisle. I was raised Jewish (though, out of respect to my father, who is Christian, I have always celebrated all holidays – something I am thankful for), and in Judaism, it is customary to have both parents walk you down the aisle. I am not very religious; I am more spiritual than anything else, but since I do uphold most Jewish traditions I opted to incorporate this custom into my wedding. I think you should do whatever is going to make you happiest.

    Just make sure the aisle is wide enough to accommodate all three of you, plus your dress.

    A friend of mine wore a big tulle princess ballgown and it did not fit, one of her grandfathers ended up walking behind her because they could not fit three across.
