I think it would be really nice to have your younger brother escort you down the aisle. I personaly wanted to walk myself down the aisle – is that something you’d consider?

I am either walking myself down the isle or meeting my groom half way. My dad passed away.

Have your younger brother!! 

ETA: Years ago my cousin got married in Paris and her dad (my uncle) couldn’t end up making it because of passport reasons, so she had our other uncle walk her down the aisle instead. She ended up asking him the day before at the rehearsal.

I have also been thinking of this andI absolutely love the idea of having your groom meet you half way! I might do that now 🙂

Do you want to be escorted? I would just ask the person you feel closest to, or walk yourself (as I did), or walk with your fiancé. Don’t worry about what’s “appropriate”– do what feels right to you.

i i walked with my mom, o made a last decision to let my das join oir walk the day of the wedding, do to the sad look His face.

i wore an anklet with a photo of my dearest male figure/family friend, who was like a father to me. He would have walked with my mom and I, but was in hospice.

My mom had her brother walk her down the aisle because her dad passed away and she had issues with her stepdad; I wasn’t there because I wasn’t born yet, but I heard it was very sweet!

My brother and I would not have traded that moment for the world 🙂

I’ve lost both of my parents and my grandfather was going to walk me but he passed away the day after we got engaged.

I will be walking myself.

ellynmar:  My friend walked down the aisle with her fiance. Her father passed away and his mother passed away so they met at the beginning of the aisle and walked together. Unexpected but a nice option.

My mom and brother. And i wouldn’t change it.   I always knew my brother would walk me down.  We also had a brother sister dance.  (Our dad passed when i was 5.  However,  he still walked with me,  via the photo charm on my bouquet. )

I’m in two minds about this. I am deciding between either my elderly Aunty as my late Mumma’s representative, walking by myself OR my celebrant told me a really cute thing which she did. For her wedding her and her husband did the first look and arrived at their ceremony location together. They then enjoyed a drink and some time with their loved ones and when the time felt right they tied the knot. I kind of like the idea of that….

I just lost my dad 2 months ago on January 30 (just over 5 months before my wedding.) <br />My great uncle who has basically been my grandfather is my first choice. There is a chance he won’t be able tomake it though since he has cancer. If he isn’t able to make it my younger brother will be walking me down.<br /><br />
