    I brought up to my parents the idea of having them both walk me down the aisle, but my dad was NOT a fan of that. He is painstakingly traditional, and I think he was insulted that it would be taking away “his job.” My mom would have loved it though, she hates that the MOB puts so much work into the wedding and doesn’t have a role!

     I had this same problem…… I am a Daddy’s girl but I live with my mom and she has done SO much for me. When I mentioned both of them waking me down the isle my dad (who is pretty chill) did not like the idea! I mentioned this to the minister and he had the idea that my dad would walk me down the isle and my mom would stand up and meet us up front and they would both give us away. 

    This idea seemed to make everyone happy!.

    I would love to have my daddy walk me down, but he has MS and is unable to walk for that long and feels uncomfortable walking me down in his wheelchair.  I am not terribly close with my mother and I would feel bad leaving my stepmother out as I am pretty close to her.

    Thus, I am walking alone.  My dad is officiating so he will still have a very special place in our ceremony.

    I’m widowed, and will be almost 32 when I walk down the aisle again, so I owuld never ask my dad to do it.  We’ve not had a great realtionship at all, and just now are starting to patch things up.  I am actually having my son do it ๐Ÿ™‚ He will be 11 at the time.  I just think it’s such a special thing to do, just he and I ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am in the SAME situation! My mom is my best friend, and my dad and I have a great relationship too, but not a “friend” relationship like my mom and I have. I was debating having both walk me down, since I am so close with my mom. But, I thought this would be a good way to show my daddy that I love him too! Ultimately, it will just be my dad walking me down the aisle, and I am 100% happy with that decision!

    I am walking down by myself.  My dad passed away a few years ago, and I don’t really feel like anyone can replace him.  Plus, I am a family of all girls… boys run few and far between!  Ha ha!

    My mom and my stepdad walked me down the aisle.  My dad attended the wedding, but we aren’t very close, and I have an amazing relationship with my mom and my stepdad.

    I don’t want my father to walk me down the aisle for the same reason I didn’t want a diamond/expensive engagement ring: nobody owns me. I own myself.

    I talked to my dad when I was thinking about this, to see how he felt about it, and he said he supported my decision. I was thinking he and my mother could do readings, to still be included, but he’s really shy (probably has something to do with being okay with not walking me down the aisle!) and said it would distract from me and my fiance.

    I didn’t really consider having both parents walk me down the aisle. My relationship with my mother just isn’t that good. I think it’s a wonderful tradition, though.
