Mrs. Cupcake had a great idea in one of her planning posts…let me see if I can find it!

Do you need to include a question like this at all? Couldn’t your dad just walk you down the aisle, hug/shake hands with Fiance, give you a kiss and then go sit down? That seems symbolic enough to me.

I don’t remember hearing this "who gives this woman" at weddings that I’ve been to and I suspect that few people (including your dad) would really miss it.

I LOVED Mrs. Cupcake’s idea!! 

My fav part of Steel Magnolias is when the dad yells, "Her mother and I do!!"  Haha.

My officiant asked, "Who presents this woman to be married?" and my Dad replied, "Her mother and I do."
