My father and I are estranged and I had always pictured myself walking down the aisle alone, but now I’m thinking about it and I think my mom would be happy to give me away, so to speak. I particularly want to include her in some way since I’ll be including my future mother-in-law in the wedding (a “happily married” female relative performs a ritual for the couple in our traditional ceremony). One, I need to check with my mom and see if she’s into this idea. And two, I’m not walking down an aisle, but down a staircase. Would that look awkward? The staircase is definitely wide enough to accommodate us both. I suppose we’ll have to practice and take it slowly to match pace. Thoughts?

I think it’s a great idea. I walked with both of my daughters, one on each arm.

I think it’s a lovely idea. I’m having my mom walk me down the aisle too! I don’t think it’s awkward to have her walk you down a staircase, either, I think it will be perfect!

Thank you both! I’ll ask my mom and see if she’s into it 😊

I think it’s great, in 2018 there’s no reason it has to be Dad or just Dad. Most brides I see are walked by both mom and Dad (if they have them both). I’ll actually be pretty bummed if my daughter doesn’t have me as a part of it since I did the majority of raising her! Unless she doesn’t do the walker down the aisle thing at all, which would be fine. But back to the point, I’d totally ask your mom!

This is the best idea we’ve heard all week! It’s very common for people to be walked down the aisle by their mother, both parents, a relative, a friend, or solo.
