Since no one else has given any advise/opinions, I think you should have this conversation with your parents.  Do you have any idea how they would react?  Starting the conversation my lead to the answers you are looking for.  There is something to be said for watching one’s beautiful daughter walking down the aisle. 

I walked down the aisle by myself but for different reasons.  My father had died when I was a child and I just didn’t feel another relative could/should “give me away”.  I would have been ok with my dad “giving me away” though. 

Sorry if this isn’t much help but I wish you good luck.

My husband and I walked hand in hand down the aisle together. We liked the symbolism of approaching marriage together, side by side.

I am VERY close with both my parents. My dad is marrying us, and I am walking alone. My mom hated the idea at first. But she warmed up to it.

We are having the groom seat BOTH mothers, symbolic of the joining of two families. Then I will enter alone, and my father will place my hand in FH’s at the altar.

My mom has been the only parent of mine that’s stuck around long enough for me to remember. It’s been her dream to walk me down the aisle. It would crush her if I didn’t let her!

Maybe you should talk to your parents about it, if they have their heart set on it, they might be crushed as well.
