Yes do it if you’d like it. i don’t know how wide your isle is so consider the logistics but do what you’d like.

I have a biological dad, an ex-stepdad, and a current stepdad. My mom suggested I have each one walk me a third. I did not like that idea but it could work I suppose. Is there a way 2 of them could walk you down – one on each arm, and the third person given another role?

In Judaism both parents walk you so I think adding a third is fine depending on the aisle width. Otherwise I would break it into 3rds as suggested above!

My dad is very much in my life, but my uncle on my mom’s side is walking me down the aisle because that’s how it is done in our culture. Do whatever you want! Maybe have one uncle on each side and you and your mom in the middle if the aisle is wide enough.

When my Uncle offered to walk me down I asked his daughter for permission as she is not married and my uncle said that was very sweet but there was no way i was letting you walk down by yourself.

My mom and step-dad both walked me down the aisle.  And when our officiant asked us who gave me away, my step-dad said, “Her mother, grandmother, and I.”

My dad will be walking me but I’ve seen brides do it a variety of ways! This is YOUR day and you get to call the shots! 🙂

I’m having both of my parents walk me down the aisle so I think you could definitely do 3 people depending on how wide the aisle is. You could maybe have 1 person on each side of you and have the third person to hold the train of your dress if you have one. You could also get both of your uncles to walk to the half way point of the aisle on their own and wait there and then just your mom can walk you down the first half as you enter or vice versa. There are lots of different ways you could do it!

My dad walked me down the isle in my first wedding and although he’s still very much in my life I’ve decided to have my two sons walk me down the isle this time.  My daughter is my Maid/Matron of Honor and my grand daughter is my flower girl….it’s a total family affair 🙂

I’m having my mom and step-dad walk me down together. If I were you I would consider having your two uncles walk you halfway and your mom walk you the rest of the way, just so you don’t have to keep switching off 3 times and don’t have to try to figure out how to get 3 people down the aisle at once. I’m not sure how your venue is laid out, but you could also consider having your uncles walk you from the bridal suite to the aisle and then your mom walk you from the aisle to the alter.

My dad has passed but my one and only is walking me down the aisle
