My dad passed away when I was 18. I might have my mom walk me down the aisle. Or I might walk down myself. I haven’t decided yet.

I also heard of a tradition (I can’t remember which culture, I’ll Google in a sec) in where the bride and groom enter together. I love that, too, especially since we’ll already have seen each other for photos before the ceremony.

My dad is, but I am also thinking about somehow including my 14 year old son.  This is what I am thinking, having my dad walk me half way down where my son is waiting & then both of them finish walking me down & both of them giving me away.  I thought of it this way is because my dad was the one who brought me into the world (well, my mom was the one), so he should be the first to walk me down & then later in life I had my son, hence picking him up half way down the aisle.  I just don’t want my dad to feel like my son is stealing his duty or anything.  What do you guys think?

My dad passed away so my mom is walking me down the aisle.  If she hadn’t want to do it I would have had my Future Father-In-Law.  

By The Way I heart the photo charms for the bouquet.  My Future Mother-In-Law is pick us one two at the local craft store.  One for my dad on my bouquet and on for my Fiance grandma on his bout.

My kids are walking me down the aisle.  I belong to them now and they are giving me to my future hubby.  I think it is appropriate.

I think it’s very elegant when a bride walks solo down the aisle.  It has a sort of dramatic quality to it…. love it.

My dad will be walking me down the aisle.  There is absolutely no way I would change this for anything.  I’ve always been a “daddie’s girl”, so it will be a very special moment for me.

My Fiance. In Sweden the tradition is to walk down the aisle together with your husband to be.

i have been having a really difficult time deciding this. I’m not engaged yet, so it’s not like it really matters now, but it still hangs over my head.

 

Well, I am  NOT close with my dad at all, in fact, I don’t really know who he is. My mom raised me up until we had a falling out when I was 17 and moved in with my Aunt and Uncle–who were a MAJOR contributing factor to my life from the age of 12 on. They took me in, put me through college, and bought me my first two cars, sent me around the world, etc… (I am VERY fortunate for them, and hold them very near and dear to my heart, just as close as my mom). So, in short, my mom is MY MOM and I will always love her for that and no one can take that role, but at the same time, my aunt and uncle (in my heart) are just as influential in my life and have helped get me to where I am right now in my life. Which is a very happy, successful, independant woman. With out them I think it would be different (my mom and I were considerably poor and my opportunities came from my aunt and uncle).

 

Soo…I want all 3 of them to walk me down the idle. My mom on one side and my aunt and uncle on the other.  Is that weird? If you were a guest, what would be your opinion?

I have asked my mom to walk me down the aisle. I met my father about 7 years ago and there is no father-daughter relationship there even now, so my mom deserves to stand next to me and walk with me. Laughing

I do want to ask my dad to have a dance with me though.  Let’s hope he is able to attend since he will miss my engagement party.
