    It’s Jewish tradition that both parents escort the bride. We aren’t having a totally Jewish wedding, but I love the tradition. In fact, FI’s parents will escort him down as well. All 6 of us will stand under the Chupah, which is the other Jewish tradition that my Catholic Fiance agreed to ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My dad only, because my mom passed away. If she were still here she’d be with me, too.

    My dad passed away last year, and I’m not close to my mom (she may not even be at my wedding).  I’m walking halfway down the isle, and my Fiance will walk towards me/meet me/walk the rest of the way together.  It symbolizes my life: I’ve done a lot on my own, been the first in my family to go to college/move out of hometown, and after I met my Fiance we’ve shared in the journey of life together.

    @rebeccastcy: My 12 year old son and I talked about this.  I originally wanted my Dad to walk me to my son and him walk with me to meet my FH with his son.  My mother is not welcome at our wedding either, and I’ve recently had words with my father and step-mom which are leading me to possibly a) just having a ceremony on our honeymoon and reception afterwards or b) having my son walk me down the aisle the whole way.  My FH and I are paying for the entire wedding, honeymoon and rehearsal dinner if we have one, and my parents dont especially care for my FH …  I’ve always said no matter what that my Dad would be walking me down the aisle, but I dont know if I necessarily feel that way now.

    @JulesJM5: I attended my cousin’s wedding last summer where my aunt walked my cousin down the aisle.  My uncle (my mom’s brother) has been a deadbeat dad all my cousin’s life, and couldnt even make it up to Michigan to be there for her.  At the ceremony – my cousin and her husband gave each of their mom’s a single Mum after they filled their vase with sand.  I thought it was a sweet sentiment ๐Ÿ™‚

    My father passed away two years ago and so I’m walking half way by myself and then my uncle who will be seated in the middle near the aisle, will stand up and walk me the rest of the way. He was my dad’s best friend and he reminds me so much of him too. I asked my mom to because we are so close but she said that she will be too much of a mess to do that and she just couldn’t handle doing something that he should have done. It’s going to be a hard time but my uncle dave is going to do a great job and honor my dad by doing this for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just included a picture of my dad, bro, and I! Support the cure and donate to the American Cancer Society today!

    My mother and my brother will be walking me down the aisle. I lost my dad recently due to cancer and it has been the hardest thing to go through. I was so close to my dad and I alwasy dreamed of my wedding day and having him walk me down the aisle.  I have been engaged for almost 2 years now and I stopped planning after he passed away because I couldnt even think of having anybody else walk my down. However, I am ready to go through with the wedding and I asked my brother and my mom to walk me down since they both mean so much to me! I am sure I will be a mess and will cry but I will do my best to keep it together!

    Since my father was not around for most of my life I am going to have him walk me part of the way to where I can meet my Grandpa. My Grandpa is going to be the one to actually give me away because he and my Grandmother practically raised me while my mom worked 24-48 hour shifts as a paramedic to support my sister, her and I. I’m really close to my step-dad so I’m going to do my father daughter dance with him.

    @madymommy24:  I’m sorry for your loss. I think it’s nice that you have your mother and brother to walk you down. If you do cry I’m sure you will still look absolutely beautiful because you are remembering someone you love and keeping them with you that day.

    I would like to have both…I would just feel bad about leaving my step mother out. She’s been in our lives for over 15 years.

    I am having my two  sons, 19 and 21, walk me down the aisle. No father in the picture for me, not since I was 3. No step-fathers or uncles either. My boys are everything to me, and I couldnt think of anyone better.
