My dad will walk me down the aisle. My mom hasn’t been supportive of my decision to get married, and she’s the reason why my dad missed my college graduation. I know it will mean a lot to him. I’ll be 23 (2 months before I turn 24) when I get married.

Hi, I’m 27 and both my mom and my step dad are walking me down the isle. There’s a large amount of stairs down to the ceremony location and I’ll be visable the whole time. My step dad has really bad hips so my mom is gonna walk me part of the way and he’ll take me the rest.

Plus it’s great to have them both a part of things!

I’ll be 26 when I get married. Both my parents will walk me downt the aisle. They’ve always stood beside me and they’ll stand beside me as I take those final steps toward Mr. Sweet and our life together.

Plus, with each one holding an elbow, I’ll be less likely to fall over my own feet.

@Kant: I realize I am super late coming into this thread, but I am an early 20-something and neither of these are what we’re doing. Fiance and I are walking together.

No disrespect to my Dad (though he is not my favorite person) and I don’t really want to walk alone, but because Fiance and I see this as the two of us choosing to enter into a marriage TOGETHER, so what better way to kick it off than to walk in….together? That was our thinking anyways. 🙂 I think if I had a better relationship with my dad then maybe we would do that, but I feel no need to at this point. I think people get too caught up in tradition sometimes (not saying anyone on here, mostly referring to the gasp of protest from his grandmother that we ignored). Times, they are a changin’ and all that. We should all do it however we see fit and I love it when people do just that. Let me just hop off my soapbox now…

My grandpa is going to walk me down. I’ve been trying to develop a relationship with my biological father and for a while it seemed like we were making progress. I was going to have my dad walk me halfway and have my grandpa pick up from there. It seems like the relationship I’ve been trying to build with my father is a bit of a sham though. He doesn’t want to put any effort into it and keeps lying his butt off. Well at least I tried. : )

So now my grandfather will walk me down and I will share my father-daughter dance with my step-dad.

I am 25… My stepdad is going to walk me down the isle and join my mom at the end. Both parents are going to give me away.

Oh man, this is something I’ve put probably too much thought into.  I’ve wrestled with it a lot. I don’t want to take something away from my father, but I also don’t want to be given away. Now the plan is to walk down the aisle with my fiancé.

@AmeliaBedelia: We walked in together, too, for a variety of reasons.  We were VERY surprised to learn that is actually what the Catholic Church calls for in the Catechism.  It was good for us to have that to back us up, as we caught a little flack from some family members.

My sister walked alone at 25.  I think it has nothing to do with age.  I was 26 and DH and I walked together.  It is all personal preference, IMO.

@peaches13: Hmm, thanks for the info actually. 🙂 My mom thinks it’s a great idea (as does my photographer, lol) but my Dad keeps going “When I walk you down the aisle…” No. You weren’t there for, um, 75% of my life, so again. No.
