Ok girls..here’s a good one for ya!
Lately i’ve been thinking more on how our ceremony will go and more so of who will walk me down to my beau. You see, my relationship with my dad is not stellar, i am definitely not a daddy’s girl. My parents got divorced when i was 2. I have a very close family and both my mom and my dad’s family get along great! He is active in my life but lately he has become an alcoholic..now i did try to help but no matter what i do (and i have been doing this for about 10 years now) he does not seem to want any help. So needless to say i cannot count with him being there on my wedding day. Sad, i know..i am his only daughter (i’ve got a 10 year old half brother) and would love for him to walk me down, but with his job and how he needs to give money to his exwife because she thinks she is owed by wasting her years with an alcoholic (w/e!) he prob wont be there. So, my choices are left to my grandfather, my uncle, or my stepdad. I would pick my grandpa or uncle before my stepdad. But..here is my idea..our flower girl is going to be our daughter. She will be 3 years ol by Nov. I think it would be awesome to have just her and myself walk out holding hands and she can walk me all the way up to the altar and place both her daddy’s hand and mine together. Will this be too much? too much for her age maybe? She is realy smart and she acts like a big kid all the time so i think she would do it..and i dont think its much diff than her walking in front throwing petals right? What do you all think?

damm Ellie… i know im pms’ing but you should have put a tear warning on that post because i just got all teary at the thought of your little girl walking you down the aisle
obviously by this reaction im a yes to the idea – as long as you are prepared to give her an out if she is overwhelmed by the event/people at the moment so if she freezes then there will be someone there to take her off your hands for you

That’s so sweet! She would probably really like to hold your hand while you walk down the aisle too

haha..thank you girls:)
I know she will like it..we will def have somebody there on hand in case she acts up or something, although..she does like attention..so im not sure she would freeze…whether she will start dancing or trying to tell to hurry up..like she does now (She says..come on mama!) that’s a whole different story!

Maybe if she does freeze, you could carry her down the aisle?

I think that’s such a cute idea!!! I’ve seen it where the bride walks by herself, so I don’t see why you couldn’t walk with your daughter. I think it would have special meaning to you & the pictures would be beautiful. I would definitely go for it. It’s your wedding & if you can do it, I’d do it. Just practice with her a couple of times! 🙂
