    I was 35 when I got married, so I had been independent for literally half my life. To keep any tension or competition from arising between dad and stepdad, and so that my fiancé and I went into the marriage as peers, we didn’t do the aisle thing at all. It worked for us.

    I’m surprised you didn’t put “I walked alone” or “No one” as an option!  That will be me next weekend.

    For my first wedding, my stepdad and older brother walked me down the aisle. If and when I ever marry again lol, my two sons will walk me down the aisle. 💞

    My dad passed away several years ago and my thought was to have my brother walk me down the aisle, but when I got engaged I thought I’d get too emotional not having my dad do it which is part of the reason we went with a courthouse ceremony. So I wasn’t walked down the aisle with anyone.

    im also close with my mom, but just made me too sad to do it with anyone other than my dad so I opted out.

    I didn’t walk down an aisle at all. So I guess I walked in with my fiancé.

    I will be walking alone at mine in a few weeks. I don’t have a relationship with my dad and my mom and grandma passed away years ago. I ordered two small bouquet charms with their pictures to tie to my bouquet

    Just my dad. I thought about asking both to do it but I’m much closer to my dad and my mom have a rough relationship at times so I felt I would be happier with it being my dad. Plus growing up I would go on lots of long walks with my dad and just talk and idk having it just be my dad felt really special to me.

    I walked up the aisle with both parents but I really wish that I’d had my parents and grandparents wait outside with my husband and then I come to them on my own before them going in and taking their seats before my husband and I walk up the aisle together.

    My father escorted me down the aisle.

    I was planning to walk by myself down the aisle or walk with my son, but during a conversation, my step mother asked me what my plan was and, knowing my family, I pretty much knew that my father would like to do it but, trying to be respectful of me, he would wait until I asked him or never say anything about it. He’s more traditional than I am, and, for my entire life, has been supremely respectful of all of the many ways I do not adhere to tradition. I ended up being really glad I asked him. As I suspected, he was hoping but fully prepared to leave me alone. We had a sweet moment together before walking down the aisle where he cried a bit and told me how much I looked like his mother (who died when I was 8) and that brief moment is one of the memories I cherish from the day.

    I asked my father because I thought HE would appreciate it and I ended up more touched than I would have thought.

    My son ended up walking down the aisle with his father.

    I’m much closer to my mum than my dad so it felt a bit fake to walk down with my dad, but it was important to both of them that he did it. However on the day it ended up being both mom and dad and all the guests commented on how lovely that was.

    I walked with my stepdad. He’s been my dad since I was 3 years old. My biological father hasn’t been in my life for over 20 years, and prior to that I only saw him a couple of times a year. He wasn’t invited to my wedding for obvious reasons, but even if he had been it still would have been my stepdad escorting me, no question.
