No one Cool, Im eloping!

 

But with my first wedding I didnt have anyone walk me down the aisle either. It was a traditional church wedding and yes my dad is alive and yes we get along great.

 

I just didnt like that it was just my dad giving me away, I felt like it was more of a family and friends giving me away, so when our pastor asked who gives this bride everyone said ‘WE DO”

@katiek625: I don’t think that would be weird. I am not close to my father and although he will be at the wedding, I’m skipping the father/daughter dance. I would rather feel comfortable at my own wedding than feel totally awkward for the sake of tradition.

I’m actually thinking of having, after the brides maids and groomsmen walk, having his parents arm-in-arm walk to their seats and then my parents follow the same way before I walk down by myself. I’m not close to my father and he doesn’t approve of my fiance but he wants to be in it so I think this is the best solution for me.

My Dad and I are very close, but he will most likely not be attending the ceremony for religious reasons (let’s just say that he loves me, loves my FH and is happy for us, but his conscience doesn’t feel right about “condoning” the ceremony). There’s no drama or upset around this, as I love him to bits and the only sad part for me on the day will be knowing he’s not there and knowing how sad he will be to miss out on giving me away (which he’s only doing because of his religious beliefs) *sigh*

I will be walking myself down the aisle… and I actually sort of like the idea ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m 33 and I’m giving MYSELF away so to speak, so I feel comfortable with it.

If it makes my Dad feel better, I may follow a German tradition, which is to have my boy meet me when I arrive, hand me my flowers and walk down the aisle with me ๐Ÿ™‚ My only concern is missing out on seeing his face as I walk down the aisle towards him.

I am going to have my son (who will be 6 by the time we get married) walk me down the aisle. I haven’t lived at home in 10 years and this will be my 2nd marriage so my parents have already given me away once! My son is my fiance’s and mine together (totally blew the grammar on that one) so it’s important he plays a roll on both sides. He will walk me down and also be the ring bearer. ๐Ÿ™‚

i think what i want to do is have my Fiance and walk towards each (him from the altar, me from the normal entrance), then meet in the middle and walk the rest of the way together. that way i get to have that moment of walking towards him, also have the grand entrance as the bride. then we get to walk together also, which i like the symbolism of that.  i am going to have his parents and my parents walk as well before us.

Both my parents are walking me down the aisle….I made sure to find a church with a wide, long aisle!

Big Dad for sure!  Hope he doesn’t cry, men crying is horrible they make me want to cry.

My dad is going to walk me down the aisle. Since my Fiance never really had a father, I realize more and more everyday just how lucky I was/am to have such a great man like my dad in my life. He’s the greatest guy I know ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m a total daddy’s girl, so he’ll be walking me down.

For your situation I like the idea of your mom walking you halfway down and perhaps either walking the rest of the way alone or having your Fiance come meet you?

No one. My father was not really an absent father, but just a bad father. I still love him, but I did the most of my growing up and learning on my own so I don’t really feel that he has the right to give me away. I am very happy to be walking on my own down to the man of my dreams.

My daughter will walk w/me half of the way, then I’ll have my “moment” walking by myself toward my husband-to-be

Neither my father or stepfather have showed any interest since I’ve become engaged so neither. In fact I don’t have a clue as to who will do it…
