    Definitely my father.  

    My mother recently asked if she could walk down the aisle with us.  My dad is my best friend, and my mother and I have never been close so I told her I always envisioned it as a father/daughter moment for me.  Talk about awkward…my parents are divorced and remarried, but my mother still makes questionable comments about my father.  I would not want to put him in that position.  My father is Jewish and my mother is Catholic. This was the one time in my life she actually said, “but you’re half Jewish…” because it was convenient and a push for her cause!

    In Jewish weddings it is customary that both the bride and groom walk down the aisle escorted by both parents.  Talk it over with your father and if he is game, make it a trio!

    Only my Dad is because he didn’t feel comfortable with all three of us walking- he felt it was his tradtion, I guess. In the end it worked out well as my mom is walking with her father to be seated and my brother is escourting my dad’s mother.

    my parents divorced when I was 5 so although I love my dad dearly, my mom is the one who raised me. I love both of my parents but it seemed odd for them to do this one thing toegether when I hardly remember my parent doing anything together so I decided to have mom walk me down the aisle, and my dad I will do a father daughter dance.  that way both parents have their moment with me, seperately… just like ti always was!

    I actually want to walk down the aisle with my fiance! It’s a lost Catholic tradition, and I really like the symbolism (It’s not just about *me,* it’s about *us.*) Fiance is ok with it…but I haven’t checked with or approved it with my dad yet! :-/

    My parents are divorced and because my dad worked so much when I was growing up my mom did a big part of raising me. I had BOTH parents walk me down the aisle for this reason. My mom is too big a part of my life to have left her out and of course I also love my father dearly. My dad handed me to my husband at the alter in keeping with tradition πŸ™‚

    We’re Jewish, and our tradition is to have them both. I loved having them both there with me!

    My mom asked if she could walk down the aisle with me too. so close with my mom i really entertained the idea. But, I am I am having my dad walk me down the aisle alone because when I think of what I have pictured of my wedding day for my whole life, I see my dad and I sharing that special moment together. I really want to do something special to acknowledge my mom though…

    I just met my real dad on boxing day. We had been looking for each other for 27 years. My mother took me away from him when I was a baby. I will probably be balling. Before I found him I was just going to walk down myself. Ohhhh… I feel tears coming just thinking about it.

    I’d really like to walk down the aisle with my Fiance. That’s the only thing that feels right to me.
