@mecattacow:  My friend had her dad and step dad walk her down the aisle. She carried a bouquet and they linked/held onto her elbow on each side.

Or they tried to! She had a big princessy ballgown with a million tulle layers and her dress was too big to fit down the narrow aisle with a grown man on each side. So one of the dads ended up walking slightly behind her.

So my advice would be, make sure the aisles can accommodate you, your dress!, two people plus any aisle decorations like flowers, pew decorations (if in a church) etc.

this is a tradition in the jewish faith – both parents walk the groom and the bride down the aisle.  I’ve seen it done lots of times.  If you google jewish ceremonies you may be able to find more images of it.  THey usually walk down arms linked.

 Just be sure your aisle is wide enough or else it looks silly and someone winds up being dragged behind.

This was a must for me! I wasn’t going to have it any other way. We were lucky to get married in a church with a nice big aisle and we all linked elbows – felt very natural.

I will be having my mother & her husband walk me down the asile. I say “her husband” because her husband is not much older than me, but, my real father isn’t around.. [well, he wants to attend the wedding, but honesty, he couldn’t tell you how old i am if you asked]. and he thinks of me as a daughter.

I’m planning to have both my Mum and my Dad walk me down the aisle.  Really great tip on checking the aisle is wide enough for 3 abreast!!! My dress is a sheath so no big dress to hamper me… I guess we’ll walk arm in arm ๐Ÿ™‚
