    Maybe you could have them both walk you down the isle. If they really love you then even if they hate eachother with a burning hot passion they can put it aside for one day to make you happy.

    I was just going to make the same suggestion as @bride21:!  A friend of mine, whose parents are divorced and DO NOT get along, had them both walk her down the aisle, one on each arm.  She had never thought she’d be able to stand between her parents like that, but they were both willing to put on a good face for her on her wedding.  I have never seen that girl happier in my life

    I personally would ask your Mum. But that is only because i’m in a similar situation, My Dad left my Mum and never bothered with me or my sister until a few years ago.

    Have you thought about asking your brother to give you away? (If your close) Thats what one of my friends did.

    @MrsP2011: I like the telling idea.  I think you should explain it in the way of, “I know it is traditional to have just your father walk you down the aisle, but since you have been so important in my life I’d like to have you join me and Dad.”  That way you’re explaining it in a way that makes her feel good, but isn’t a ‘choice’ of her OR your father.

    I agree with Brianalaura. Maybe that is the only way to get it where they can both walk you down the isle and if she fights it and tries to make a big deal out of it then leave her out and just have your dad do it. She should realize that it is YOUR day and YOUR decision on what happens. She shouldn’t be able to push you around, ESPECIALLY on your wedding day. Try talking to her about it, she may surprise you.
