I would talk to him in a calm, honest way and explain to him what it means to you to have him walk you down the aisle.  As hard as it might be, try not to sound too stubborn about it!  

Right now he seems to be making excuses, so perhaps if this talk doesn’t work, leave it alone for a bit.  Then when it gets closer to the day, you can revisit the situation and ask him again.  Assuming he is in good health at this point, he won’t be able to use the “I can’t walk” excuse at that point.

Good luck!

I could be waaay off but do you think that it’s because he is afraid he will get emotional if it’s just him walking you down the isle? I know that was an issue with my friend’s father.  I think the advice that @dance gave about having a calm conversation and telling him how much it means to you is a good idea.  That might change his mind.
