  • poll: What should be said after my Dad walks me to the end of the aisle?

    Nothing. We hug, I say "thanks", then he sits down.

    "Who supports this union?"

    Something else...

    We’ve been married almost 40 years and nothing was said. When we got to the end of the aisle, we stopped, my father kissed me on the cheek, and I said “Thanks, Daddy!” then he walked over my train, because he was very emotional/numb, etc. My husband didn’t ask permission to propose to me, either; that’s just the way we are.

    I fought with the local newspaper, to not use the term “given away” in their wedding announcement. We settled on the word “escorted.” P.S. I had asked my mother to walk with us too, as I thought it was only fair, but she declined.

    When both our daughter’s married, over the last few years, my husband and I both walked with them, to the end of the aisle, and no one said anything.
