I don’t see anything weird about any of your three options you gave (mother, groom, self). If that’s what speaks to y and your fiancé, you should do it. 

If you want something more “traditional” do you have a brother or another male role model in your life who was like your dad growing up?

We did it! My dad died when I was young, and my mom refused to come to the wedding (she wanted me to marry my ex). So we found that in Finnish weddings the man and woman walk together down the aisle – so that’s what we did.

I like it when brides and grooms walk together. I love my dad to pieces but I never want to be “given away”. Of course we word it slightly different now and say brides are simply accompanied down the aisle, but I still see symbolism in that. I’ve proposed to my fiancé that we walk together. The other option is that I walk myself.

My parents walked up together in their wedding.  My mom was a widow, and her father said he had walked her up the aisle once already and didn’t want to do it again.

I love this idea!  My Darling Husband and I were really torn about whether to walk together down the aisle or have both of our parents walk us down the aisle (i.e., me with my parents, him with his parents).  We ended up going with parents because we wanted them to be included in the ceremony somehow, but I think it’s so lovely and symbolic when couples walk in together.

My parents walked down the aisle together. Nothing weird about it at all 🙂

We walked 1/2 way together. 

Groom’s parents walked him 1/2 way, then he stopped and waited for me. I walked half way alone then we arrived at the front together. 

It was perfect. ❤

Where o come from is a tradition for the groom to  walk down the aisle with his mother, my ex did and he got amazing pictures, so I think is lovely. But maybe that’s because it’s how is done here.. although I’ve been to weddings in Europe and USA that this didn’t happen and it was nice too..

I want fi to meet me half way and then we walk together. How I envision it – he walks down with the grooms party, the bridal party walks down, I start walking, and he walks up to meet me. ‘Entering marriage together/equally/on equal footing’ (something like that).

My Darling Husband had his back to me as I started to walk down the aisle and as I got closer the minister tapped him on the shoulder and I stopped so he could turn around, see me, then come to me and we linked arms and walked to the alter together. It was so beautiful. He was balling. One of my favorite moments for sure!

We did this too, – although it would be a push to call it an aisle! 

I was 46 and we’d been together ages, it just seemed right for us that we were going into this together, arm in arm. Nobody was giving me away to anyone.
