I have the same problem…Except me and my father are not close and it is my mother who says he would be really upset if he didn’t.  I don’t know what to do either….

I’m with bthurber. My father and I aren’t close either. I honestly would rather have my mother walk me down the aisle. Even though they are divorced and not speaking she still thinks I should give him the opportunity. I’m at a loss…

I think I will end up doing it anyway.  Another awkward thing is going to be the father daughter dance…

Are you open to having him walk you down the aisle, minus the giving away part? Like instead of having the typical “who gives this woman to this man” maybe you could have something like “who supports this woman in her decision to marry” or something along those lines? That way its more of a support than giving away like property? It might be nice to find an alternative way so that it respects your independance but still allows your dad to do something as you walk in. Especially if it’s important to your dad and you have a good relationship.

Have you thought about doing the half walk?

Your dad and mom walk you to the start of the aisle to represent them helping bring you up and then you walk down the aisle to your Fiance by yourself and there is no “giving away” part.

I think it has great sentiment and more representative of most present day relationships. Would you consider it?

Of course!

The groom traditionally walks his parents to their seat but you could definitely incorporated for the both you!

The half walk certainly does make sense in your situation.

FMM that sounds like a good idea except, where do her parents walk to after? their seats are in the front of the chapel (or 2nd row of seats wherever the ceremony is taking place) that would be awkward with them walking in behind her and even weirder if they sat in the back OR walked up the other sides of the chairs to hurry to the seats in the front. explain how the half walk would work 1 more time for me lol fyi i’m sleepy and sick so i am not all there haha
