My husband’s cousin’s mother walked her down the aisle for the exact same reason. No one batted an eyelash.

Alot of people are doing this. Its actually pretty common I think. I think its nice to have your mother walk you down the aisle. I will have both parents walk me down. They never married but raised me equally. Choosing one just wouldn’t seem right. I also have both of their last names.

fromsmithtodavis:  I had my mom and my step-father walk me down.  My step-father would have been dramatic if I didn’t have him while my mom has been my mom and “dad” my whole life.  She earned the spot.  Nobody said anything to me about it.  I think you’ll see more and more untraditional choices being made regarding who walks down the aisle.  Some people go down alone or with their Fiance.  You’re following your heart and making your wedding your own.  I think it’s awesome!

I don’t see any issue in this. I even know of a bride who was raised by her adult brother when she was still a minor walk her down the aisle because the parents weren’t in their lives.

I’m having both parents walk me down. I’d rather it just be my mom, but that’s not a war I want to start right now.

I’m having my mom walk me. My dad wasn’t in my life until I was 16, and even after it was very few and far between. He passed a year ago. But if he were still here I would still have my mom walking me. As she is the one that loved me, raised me, taught me right from wrong, kissed the boo-boos, and wiped my tears. She was my fommy. (Our word, father-mommy)

I had both of my parents walk me down the aisle. They’re divorced and I wouldn’t feel right leaving my mother out because the traditional who gives this bride away moment would of been awkward (they were recently divorced at the time of my wedding). A lot of people are doing both or their mothers only.

fromsmithtodavis:  I think it’s a great idea! I wanted my mom to do that in my first wedding (the big one), but she wouldn’t. Too untraditional for her. Grrr. She was a single mom, too so it made sense to me. Oh well.

Sounds perfect! She raised you and should have the honor to give you away. I’m having both of my parents walk me down the aisle 🙂
