I know traditionally the father walks the daughter down the aisle but it seems like it is becoming more popular for both parents to walk down the aisle. I think this is so nice because both of my parents have always been there for me. I haven’t talked to my dad/parents about what they had in mind for this yet. I was just wondering, how is everybody else walking down the aisle??

My daddy is walking me down the aisle. I thought about doing it the other way, but we are trying to keep things simple and traditional so we’re sticking with just him.

These days, I think it’s fine to do whatever makes you feel most comfortable. I’ve seen all different kinds of combinations–just dad, dad and mom, dad and step-dad, just mom, grandpa, etc. I think it would be very sweet to have both your parents walk you down the aisle, to acknowledge your mom’s impact on your life, too.
I don’t have a relationship with my dad and my mom felt strongly about not wanting to walk me down the aisle. It wasn’t a tradition thing, but she just always pictured being able to watch me walk down. Plus, we’re both very emotional, so I knew we’d be crying up a storm. I had my brother walk me down the aisle and it was great.

We walked down together. I’m curious to see who else has done or is planning to do this. It was really nice, actually, we peeked out of the windows to watch everyone mingling beforehand and then had a last moment together before walking out and down the aisle.
I know that’s not a popular choice but I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

My dad is walking me down because we’re super super close and there’s no way I wouldn’t. It’s the one traditional aspect of the wedding stuff that I really don’t mind for some reason. I asked my mom if she would walk with us, but she didn’t want to.

My dad. But if my mom were still alive, I would consider having both my parents walk me down the aisle.

My dad walked me down the aisle. I suggested both he and my mother do it, and my father’s eyes about bulged out of his head at the mention! Turns out it was something that was incredibly important to him. We have only daughters in my family, and he’s dreamed of walking us down the aisle his whole life. He looked at it as one of the perks of being a father that was special to fathers. Once I saw it from his point of view, I wouldn’t have gone down the aisle any other way!

I toyed with the idea of having both my mom and dad walk me down the aisle (since they both raised me), but then my sister told me that she thinks my dad is really looking forward to walking me down! I don’t want to have him share his "thunder" when he’s been looking forward to it so much, especially when I know my mom would be okay with not doing a joint walk, so in the end, it’s just going to be me and my dad.

The day hasn’t come yet, but I know my daddy will be walking me down the aisle…I am going to have my little brother walk my Mom down the aisle I think…gotta include her of course, but I know I want the traditional "father walking daughter down the aisle" thing…and I am not a traditional kind of girl! Strange…

My Dad will be walking me down the aisle. I do like the idea of both of the parents walking me down…Hmmm. I will have to think about this one.
