I haven’t seen that, but you could always have a close friend or family member who does approve walk you down the aisle. If your father doesn’t want the honor, I’m sure someone else in your life would love to be there for you and would be ecstatic to give you away.

I think that it would be great for you both to come in together. In Victorian times, it was a common practice for both the bride and groom to enter the ceremony together.

I went to a wedding a new years back and the church had 2 aisles that led to the alter (the church had 3 seating sections rather than the traditional 2), so the bride and groom walked down separate aisles, but at the same time, which I thought was really cool.

I’ve only seen the couple walk in together when they are same sex, but it was beautiful and I don’t see why it wouldn’t apply as wonderfully.

I’m sorry that your parents aren’t attending.  Walking down the aisle with your hubby will be beautiful.  I’m sure your guests will be moved.

I think the two aisle plan is awesome!  If you have the ability to have two aisles, I think that would be the best bet.  As a guest I know my reaction would be “Awww!  How sweet!”

If you can only have one aisle (because it’s a church, or something like that) then maybe your brother could do it?  If no brother, then maybe have the Best Man walk you to the groom?  That could be cute if done right, kind of like the best friend giving you to the groom kind of thing.

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 πŸ™‚ I think it would be awesome and actually unexpected and fun!

The picture of your brothers hamming it up is quite cute πŸ™‚
