Unless you are underage, no one gives you away. You can have someone escort you down the aisle, but that is not giving you away as though you are their property being transferred from one household to another (which is how the tradition actually started).

You can have anyone you want walk with you or you can walk by yourself. There are no rules. It doesn’t make sense to have someone walk you who doesn’t take it seriously and who has very little contact in your life. It should be someone who is very close to you. Have your mom walk with you or do it yourself.

How about having both of them walk you down the aisle?

Escorting you down the aisle may mean more to your dad than you think/realize. Only you can decide what you feel is best for you, but would it really be that awkward or unwanted for him to walk down with you? Do you feel guilt tripped into it? I certainly don’t think it’s silly to want to spare any hurt feelings!

Jápp. 2 vikum á eftir þér. Þú ert s.s. á Íslandi?

Haha I have Israeli friends who do that, and I’m always convinced they’re talking about me. However, I see you are Icelandic and reading anything in language will forever make me think of that unpronounceable (to my comprehension at least) volcano a few years back :). 

Anyway to your original question, I would vote to have both parents walk you down together.

Jújú, ég er á Íslandi. Við giftum okkur í Fríkirkjunni í Hafnarfirði.

En eins og ég sagði áðan, svar mitt við þinni upprunalegu spurningu… Ef þetta væri ég myndi ég bara ganga inn með þeim báðum. En ég svo sem þekki ekki þitt samband við pabba þinn.
