My father is not apart of life and not even invited to the weddign nontheless walking me down the aisel.
I was sort of raised by both my grandmother (who I call mom) and my mommy ( who I call mommy).
Should I have both of them walk me down? Or my brother (mom’s suggestion)?

I walked alone but I think whoever means the most to you should walk you down. Have your grandma and mom walk you if that would be special for you.

I’m rocking that long-ass aisle myself…a little intimidating but I can handle it!

I think you should walk down with who you want to walk with. My stepdad is giving me away

Me, myself and I! I do not have a good relationship with my father and couldn’t imagine sharing such an intimate experience with him. To have my mom do it instead would create too much drama with him, so I’m just going to do it by myself and looking forward to it!

@Lily_of_the_valley: haha, love this!
@krystal1708: OP, I would say do whatever makes YOU happy. There’s some drama going on for me with this issue, as my parents are divorced and there is absolutely no love lost between them. My mom keeps swearing up and down that if I have my dad walk me down the aisle, she won’t be at the wedding. So my choices are either have my dad walk me and piss my mom off, have no one walk me and probably upset my dad, or have both of them walk me and crowd the splendor of my dress ;P honestly, i’ll probably have my dad walk me and my mom will have to get over it. My point is, who do you feel should have that place of honor beside you on your special day? That will be your answer.

My mom and stepdad walked me down the aisle. My dad was in attendance but has never been involved in my life any more than he was legally ordered to. I say, have whoever you want–just try not to have more than 2 people walking you down because the space might get a little tight!

My dad passed away not too long ago so my brother is walking me down the aisle. I think you should have whomever you want walk you down. Maybe have both your mom and your brother?

I walked with my grampa. I think walking with your mom and gramma would be sweet!

Definitely walk down however you want. I’ll be walking alone since my grandpa passed away. I did think about having my grandma do it, plus then I had like five people offer to walk me, but I think I like the idea of walking alone.

I’m walking with both parents- they both raised me equally so I felt like they should both “give me away”. I think you should have whoever you want- whoever’s most important to you, it makes it more special!

My parents have both passed (along with GPs and most of my relatives) so my 22YO son is going to walk me down the aisle. And we’re not considering it “giving me away,” just joining the family together. Once he walks me, he’s joining the grooms side up front.
