Based on your story, I think you should walk with your mom. Just my opinion. Of course it’s your day and you should walk with whomever will make you feel the most loved and special. Could you honor the other relatives in a different way during the wedding instead? Like having them do a reading?

Definitely your mom.

I vote for your mom as well, but if I had to choose a man, it would be your grandpa 🙂

You can do what ever you want, but honestly your mom is the one who has been with you and supported your entire life. I was just at a wedding where the bride was close to being in the same boat you are and her mother walked her down the isle. I don’t think you should base your decision on a persons sex but rather their role and impact in your life.

How about you walk by yourself or with your FI? My husband and I walked together, hand in hand. We liked the symbolism that we were presenting ourselves to each other, facing our marriage together as equals.

Perhaps you could have grandpa on one side, dad on the other, and do the rose thing to honor your mother and FI`s mom.

based on the story – your mom – unless you aren’t close with her

I vote for your Mom! However if you really want to be walked by a male family member I would go with Grandpa. I’m sure given the situation and him knowing you arent close with your birth father he wouldnt be offened at all, infact he’d probably be delighted!

I also vote for your Mom, but could you be walked by both your Grandpa and your mom?

I know this wasn’t part of the options you listed, but I vote for Mom as well.
