Just wondering who gave you away if it wasn’t the tradtional father walking his daughter down the aisle.
My parents divorced when I was 5. I just recently reconciled and will invite my dad to my wedding; but he definitely hasn’t earned the right to give me away.
I’m thinking of having my mom & older brother walk me. Or just my brother… I haven’t decided!
Who walked you down the aisle and gave you away?

My parents divorced when i was 3. Haven’t talked to my dad since I was 5. So it was mom 🙂

My parents divorced when I was 3. I had a mediocre at best relationship with my biological father until I was about 15…and then it was on a steady decline. I’m 33 now and see him maybe once every 1-2 years and get an occasional text. He’ll be at my wedding as a guest only. My step-father will be walking me down the aisle.
At first that was a hard decision for me because genuinely don’t want to hurt anyones feelings. But at the end of the day…it was a no-brainer…as my step-father has been with me through little league, learning to drive, graduating HS and college and everything in between.

My mum. There was never any debate – she was mum, dad, sister and brother rolled into one (I was an only child in a single parent family)

Myself. I’ve lost both my parents, I’m an only child and my grandfather passed away the day after we got engaged. Who else would do it? And even if pawpaw was here, he wouldn’t be “giving me away”, I can do that myself.

I haven’t spoken to my father in about 7 years, so he’s not even invited to the wedding.
My mom and brother are going to walk me down the aisle. At first I really wanted to walk myself down the aisle (I’m an adult and don’t need someone to “give me away”, and I kind of wanted the moment to myself), but my mom REALLY wanted to walk me down the aisle, and including my brother seemed like a nice way to include him in the ceremony.

Nobody did. It’s not done that way here. We were married in the Stadhuis, which is like having a court wedding. You walk to the front and sit in the 2 middle chairs. Each person has 1 person to their side to serve as witness. All the guests seat themselves where they want behind.

I will most likely have my uncle who has pretty much been my father since my dad passed!

My oldest son walked my daughter down the isle. My husband passed away two years ago.

My Best guy friend, who is gay and always call my 1st husband, walked me down. My dad is deceased and I wanted my mom to see me walk down the isle. It was very sentimental and emotional to me because not only was he my first friend after my parents were divorced and we moved to another state, he was my first kiss and first boyfriend. Loved every moment of it.

- Wedding: October 2013 - Tybee Island, GA
My parents were never married. I dont know my dad and my brother and I grew up with our grandparents. When my grandparents passed, i moved in with my aunt and my brother went to the airforce. So when i got married, it was only right to ask my brother to walk me down the aisle 🙂
