I’m getting married on New years eve. I’ve been engaged for 2 years, and now that we’re getting closer to the big day, I need to start planning EVERYTHING. Ever since I was first engaged, I knew I wanted my brothers to “give me away”. With that said, my mom told me to wait until closer to the date, to decide, becuase my relationship with my father, might get better. My dad and I don’t talk, he’s off into his own world. I don’t want to do what “tradition” is, but more do what I want because of the meaning behind it. I don’t hate my dad, it’s just that, He hasn’t been around, doesn’t know my fiance that well, since my parents divorced, my moms family doesn’t like him, and he is the type that is extremly nervous, and hates being the center of attention. I didn’t want to put that kind of pressure on him. I figured I would want my brothers to give me away, cause they know my fiance very well, and being the big brothers, they are very protective of their sister, and so it would be a meaning, that they approve. I had talked to my dad, and told him, that I didn’t want to put that pressure on him. My dad said that was alright. (mind you, I felt terrible about that) I got a phone call from my brother today, and he was telling me, how mad my dad was at me and hurt. (understandable) So I guess what I’m trying to ask is. WHAT DO I DO????? HELP!!! I really just want my brothers to walk me down. or do I just walk myself down, so noone’s feelings get hurt. I need some advice!!
