    My mom had both her parents walk her down the aisle for her wedding, but I’ve decided that I want to walk alone with my dad. I love my mom to pieces, but I kind of want to have that special moment with my dad.

    Both my Mom & Dad walked me down the aisle.  I love them equally, but my Mom is truly my first best friend.  I couldn’t have imagined not having her with me as we walked down the aisle towards my now hubby!

    My parents did equal parts in raising me. In fact my mom probably did more seeing as she was a stay at home mom.

    However, I’ve always been daddy’s little girl and it is very important to both me and him to have him walk me down the aisle.

    I haven’t talked about it with my parents yet, but I’m sure my mom is assuming it’ll just be me and my dad.

    I considered my uncle and one of my brothers, but the idea we liked best was walking together!  πŸ™‚

    This was actually the oposite for me, I told my mom I wanted her to walk down the aisle w/ me and my dad and she went “huh?”

    She was worried that my dad envisioned walking me alone, so she wanted me to talk to him & when I did he loved the idea! He was super nervous about walking alone and agreeded that my mom walking me was important too.

    I had the father/daughter dance as my special moment w/ my daddy πŸ™‚

    @Rock Hugger: I walked with my dad only, but when i look back i wish i had done it with my mom and dad. My dad gets this special daughter/father dance and i just feel like my mom was left out a little.

     

    ** on that note I had Darling Husband walk my mom andhis mom down the aisle. They lit memorial candles,….but still…its not like im JUST my dads daughter….

     I’m not very close to my dad so my mom’s walking me down the aisle. I’m still having a father/daughter dance.

     You can always incorporate your mom into it in another way. I know a lot ceremonies with unity candles have the moms light the candles, things like that.

    Our priest told us that Episcopalians are not  into the father walking daughter down aisle thing so I will be walking by myself!

    We’re incorporating some Jewish elements into the wedding, so it makes sense to have both my parents.  I’m much closer with my mom.  I love my dad, but I think it would be awkward to do it alone… I’m actually sort of dreading the father-daughter dance.

    Originally I thought I would walk myself down the aisle, but my mom told me how much it would mean to my favourite uncle to have him walk me down.  He doesn’t have children, so this may be his only opportunity.  I haven’t asked him yet though!  And I think my mom wants to walk me down too. πŸ™‚
