I was on my fathers left arm because the brides side is to the left.  Otherwise if you had a center aisle you would have to cross over your father to get to your spot.  HOWEVER, if you are doing a side aisle I think its totally acceptable to walk on his other arm so your guests can see you!  whatever works best for your space 🙂

the main reason for the left arm, is because the brides family sits on the left, and the bride stands on the left, so i would just switch you sides at the alter(so you will be on he right instead of the left) and go for it!!

I vote stand on your fathers right arm – I agree with you, as a guest at your wedding (lol) I would want to see you in your gown Laughing

I say it really doesn’t make that big of a different and I would be that NO ONE is going to “Gasp! She’s walking on the wrong side!” regardless of whether or not you have a center aisle.  I my dad was on my left (mom was on the right) and I stood on the left side.  It wasn’t awkward to cross over at all.

I’ve seen it done both ways… in your case, I think you should be on your father’s right.  🙂
