@LisaAnn:  My mom walked me down the aisle and I don’t regret it for a second.  I have a dad and a step-dad, but having my mom do it just felt right.

Both of my parents are deceased. My step-mom will be walking me down the aisle. I have seen that done before, I have seen both parents do it, I have seen the bride come down the aisle alone. FI’s dad offered to walk me too, but I chose my step-mom. I think your mom would love to give you away, and it sounds like she would be the best choice in your life! To me, following tradition doesn’t make sense when it doesn’t feel right. What is going to put a smile on your face as you’re coming down the aisle? Seeing your Fiance at the end waiting for you, and your mom by your side.

My grandmother walked my aunt down the aisle… My grandfather passed away many years ago. They are super close and it was really beautiful:

Hehe, excuses their awkward faces.. It’s a guest pic, deff not a professional. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My dad is deceased so my next logical choice was mum… Apparently “tradition” states oldest/closest male relative – I said screw tradition my mum is the only other person who can “give me away”. 

I think these days it is whatever you want – no one really bats an eye when something is “non-traditional”. I will be the first wedding where only mum walks me down thou – most have been traditional & only 1 has had both mum and dad do it ๐Ÿ™‚

My SIL just did this! Her dad died when she was young and her mom never remarried, and raised her and her sister on her own. So she walked my SIL down the aisle and it was really sweet. Once she walked her in, one of the groomsmen came over to walk her to her seat. But it was very emotional for them and she’s so glad she chose her mom rather than one of her uncles.

My parents are divorced as well and if I had it my way I would have only had my mom walk me down the aisle or walk by myself.  To spare feelings, I had both of them walk me.

My mom and step dad will be walking me down the aisle.. I have absolutely no relationship with my birth father as he and my mom got divorced when I was 13 months old..

My Mom and Brother walked me to the Chuppah when I married my Ex-H. It would have been Mom + Dad if he had been alive when I married.

@LisaAnn:  My mother walked me down the aisle as my father is deceased. I could think of no other person to do it. Go for it!
