I’d like both of my parents to participate, but I haven’t decided yet if I’ll have them walk with me, or go down the aisle together first.  I don’t have a bridal party so we’ll see.

I would love for my Fiance to walk me down the aisle, but he’s against it! I’m kind of loving the idea of walking myself down the aisle- after all I’m an independent woman & I’ve gotten myself to this point (this is where my feminist side ends). I would get my Fiance to meet me 1/4 of the way then 🙂

I don’t have a close relationship with my father–haven’t spoken to him in years & don’t want him to even know I am getting married.  My uncle (actually great uncle–brother to my grandmother) who has done a lot for me over the years will be walking me down the aisle. 

My mother is going to be officiating the ceremony, but if she wasn’t doing that, I would have had her walk me down the aisle. We have a close relationship and I just think of it as acknowledging someone who  has really been there and supported you–and that has definitely been my mother!!

@ recessionista- If it wasn’t my uncle, I would have been totally fine walking by myself, so if you don’t have someone that means a lot to you that you want to step into that role, you should feel free to walk yourself. If I was there I would be cheering you on!!

@moneypenny: aww thanks! I always thought my grandfather would do it, but he had a severe stroke in 2008 and he’s in a wheelchair now. It just doesn’t feel right to use another male member of my family! haha he joked that I could sit on his lap & he’d wheel me down the aisle 🙂

@Soontobe: I think that would be lovely! Family roles are changing all the time- I think its important that you’re comfortable with your choices vs tradition.

My father is deceased and I am debating between walking down the aisle by myself and having my mother escort me.

I am not at all close with my biological father…so my grandfather will be walking me down the aisle and possibly my mother….I have not decided just yet.

My mum’s walking me down the aisle. I’m not close to my dad – he’ll be there but we don’t really see each other and generally have a fairly strained relationship so having him walk me down the aisle would just be weird – and fake! So my mum’s gonna walk me down the aisle – originally I was just going to walk by myself but I kept imagining the music and my BM’s gradually leaving as the went down the aisle and me being there by myself knowing everyone was going to be looking at me – made me a bit nervous so I decided that my mum should be there to help me out!

My son who will be 3 at the time of the wedding will walk me down the aisle…I cried when he got fitted for his little tux last month..Its going to be an exact match to his daddy’s. My father is invited but we do not have a close relationship.
