My friend’s Dad is a Deacon and he married her and her hubby. Her mom walked her down the isle and when they were a little more than halfway, here dad walked down and met her and walked her the rest of the way. I LOVED it, I’m actually getting choked up thinking about it.

I’m not married (or engaged for  that matter) but I will be walking down the isle by myself.  So did my sister.  Our father is not in our lives (actually we had security there making SURE he didn’t show up unexpectedly but that’s a WHOLE other thread, lol).  No one thought it was strange or odd that she was walking by herself, she was just the star of the show and you will be too! 🙂

@Mrs. Doily: did.  DH walked in, stood at the rear of the ceremony site with our Bridesmaid or Best Man.  MOH met him (her husband) and they walked up the aisle together, and then I walked, met DH and we went together.  I was so, so nervous for the part of the walk that didn’t include DH.  I got to where he was, and it was so much easier.

I didn’t have a choice, my Dad said he couldn’t come because he had to buy a boat.  (ugh) but given the choice of walking all the way alone, or the way I did it, there is no way I would have made it the whole way up alone.

I walked down the first half by myself, and I liked it that way. DH met me in the middle and we walked the rest of the way together. We got a lot of positive comments on that. I have a friend who’s father married her, and he walked up with her, then “gave” her to her husband, and then just moved to his place to start the ceremony. 

Here is my picture walking alone. Sorry no face, but I promise I look happy!

I’m planning to walk alone, but that’s not until next October. I’m sorry I have no pics for you!

Walking down the aisle alone was one of my favorite memories. I just got to take in my soon-to-be-husband and enjoy the music and the excitement and see everyone’s faces. I loved it, and many of our guests commented on how cool it was. I was strangely calm, and I didn’t even cry! 

Plus, our photog captured it in one of my favorite photos of my dress and the church.

@TogetherThroughLife:  I think the violinist just started playing, so people quieted down. Then the processional started when the music got to the right point, and everyone knows to stand up when the bride starts walking down the aisle anyways. There was certainly a start to the ceremony, it was just a little more natural instead of announced. And I believe they prayed as part of the ceremony, not before the bride and groom were at the altar. Hope that helps!
