I have no advice because I really don’t want my Dad walking me down the aisle, but I know I will cave. Just know you aren’t the only one struggling over this issue 🙁

@Marullos: I actually went through the exact same thing for my wedding. I ended up deciding to allow my father to walk me down the aisle. At the end of the day, it’s your wedding, it will only happen once…but you will remember it forever. For me, i knew I would feel bad on the day of my wedding had he not walked me down the aisle and I didn’t want anything but happiness on my big day. It’s really a big deal for a father, whether your relationship has been strained or not. It’s not the best situation to be in, but sometimes you just have to swallow your pride. If you do choose to let him walk you down the aisle, maybe attempt to talk to him about his actions and how you want things to be moving forward.  Good luck!

@Marullos: I struggled with how to deal with walking down the ailse as well.  I read many posts on this issue and found a post on one from a father that was really influential.  He said to think of it as going from the family you came from into the one you are making. 

Do you think you have your father’s blessing?  You may not feel you’ve had his support in other things, but if you can see past your hurt, perhaps you can take this moment to feel it now.

Good luck and congratulations!
