My dad says he is not coming to the wedding, even though he gave my Fiance his blessing when he asked to propose, because that “would be like putting his stamp of approval on something he doesn’t approve.” I love my parents dearly, but my Fiance and I are ready to be married. We’re financially secure, mature, have stable jobs, and yes we have a year left of school, but we have that paid for already, not to mention we love each other and are ready to be married! I could go on and on about this, but the point is he is not coming. I am sad about this, but I honestly am handling it, because I am ready to start my life with my Fiance.
Now, I am a BIG chicken. I don’t want to walk alone, but I am thinking I might. Have you seen weddings where the bride and groom walked together? How did it go?

I really like the idea of you walking in with all of your brothers (so long as the aisle is wide enough)!

Another idea – a co-worker’s cousin is having a big Indian-American wedding. The bride is having some of her friends as American-type bridesmaids. She is having her mom, aunts, and older cousins escort her down the aisle. So you could have elder female relatives walk with you en masse – kind of a girl power thing.

Wow, I’m really sorry about your dad’s attitude, after he already gave his “blessing”. Strange.
I read somewhere just the other day it is becoming quite popular for contemporary couples to walk down the aisle together and I don’t see why you couldn’t do that 🙂 I think it would be awesome and actually unexpected and fun!
The picture of your brothers hamming it up is quite cute 🙂

One thing you could do is enter the church by yourself – just a little bit – and then pause after a very short walk. Your Fiance could then walk up the aisle to greet you and walk you down. Very sweet. 🙂
