If you are comfortable walking by yourself down the aisle, then I would say do that.  Plenty of brides decide to walk by themselves.

Walk halfway down yourself and then have your Fiance meet you halfway down the aisle.

When I read your post, I just picutred what that person presents. Person who walks you down the isle. It is your connection to yourself and from there to your past, present and future.

I think it means that someone representing you that knows you, supports you, and that walked the path with you as a woman that lead you to your SO and your future, someone who will continue to walk the path with you in your new life.


So I say, and hope you have a great girl friend that can represent this for you and will walk you down the isle.

I agree that you should have someone who really knows you to walk you down the aisle. If you are super close with your Future Father-In-Law, then that’s fine… but I’m gathering that even though you like him, that’s not the case.

I think walking yourself or the idea of a close friend are both good ideas. The close friend idea is really sweet, I think.

@cplace:  I actually considered this as well (having my future Father-In-Law walk me down the isle). While I don’t think it’s inappropriate, it just doesn’t make sense to me. While we get along great and he loves me (as a future DIL), he has no “right” or reason to give me away since he does not know me THAT well, so I decided against it. For me, it will probably be my uncle, if he doesn’t come (due to long distance) my male cousin, if he can’t come, then my mom and aunt together.

In your situation I would let your close friend do it! I don’t think there is anything wrong at all to have a woman give you away if you are very close and have been for a while! It will be more meaningful than your future Father-In-Law walking you IMO.
