@vitaminshake:  Personally..

I think your mom should walk you down the aisle. You mom should “give you away.” And you should share a dance with your mom. Or maybe have a sissy-sissy dance? I’m sure your sister would love it!

She has been there your whole life. It’s not easy for a mother to tell you what she told you at 8 or 9. 

As for inviting.. I don’t know about that one :/

This is difficult. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more help.

theWho the person that was there for you as far as you can remember should walk you down the isle. As for invitations, I’d invite all.

im walking down the isle by myself because I’ve been on my own since early age. And it’s ok.

My fiance and I are walking in together. This is increasingly common, actually.

If I were you, I would walk down the aisle by myself and have a dance with your mom. For invitations, I would use “together with their families” unless you two are paying for the whole thing by yourselves

My dad and I do not have much of a relationship. Even if he was coming to my wedding, I was not going to have him walk me down the aisle, give me away, or dance with me if we were havnig dancing. We do not have that kind of relationship and I don’t want to fake it on my wedding day. He is not coming so I don’t have to deal with that awkwardness. FH’s mom asked if my older brother who I have not had an actual conversation with in the past 10 years could walk me down the aisle. Both Fiance and I laughed at this. I invited him only because I invited my other siblings. I don’t even know why he is coming. I am walking myself down the aisle.

In your case, have your mother walk you down the aisle. She has been both father and mother to you. Do not try to fake things on your wedding.

Edit: Also, no one is giving me away. I am an independent woman who has lived on her own for 10 years. Nobody owns me. (That’s just my opinion, if you have a great relationship with your father then that’s great. I do not so I refuse to be “given away”.)

@vitaminshake:  oh I thought you were saying that you didn’t know what to write on the invitations! Invite them if you want to, but you shouldn’t feel obligated.

I’m pretty sure that the groom doesn’t usually walk down the aisle.

Adding: My parents are not paying for any part of my wedding. FH’s parents are paying for 90% of it so our invitation has them on it and does not mention my parents. Your invitations should have who you feel comfortable having on it. Do not bend to society’s “rules”.
