I also don’t want to leave my mum out, my parents are divorced, and I’m equally close to both. This is what I’m doing, Dad is walking me down the aisle, then my mum will be at the end of the aisle to lift my veil, then I’ll walk the last few steps to the altar alone. I feel its a good compromise.

No, Mr. Roux won’t lift it. I’ve never even considered him lifting it. Isn’t it tradition that the father lifts the veil before ‘giving the bride away’?  I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of the groom doing it. Maybe Australians and Brits do it differently.

Here is a photo of Michael Middleton lifting Kate’s veil at the altar. This is how I’ve always seen it done.

Both my parents are walking me down the aisle. That’s how it is traditionally done at Jewish weddings…although my wedding isn’t technically Jewish since Fiance is catholic and we’re not being married by a Rabbi….lol

My mom and I are super close and I originally had asked her to walk me down the aisle, but she didnt want that to hurt my dads feelings. I am close with my dad as well, but my mom is like my best friend. So I came to the conclusion that my dad and my stepdad will both be walking me down the aisle. I couldnt just leave my stepfather out he has been in my life since I was 8. So thats how that is going to go, but I wanted to have my mom do something special so we are having a mother/daughter dance so we get to have that special time.

My mother is walking me down the isle. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for my father to walk me down the isle. That’s my ultimate dream, but my father will not be attending my wedding. He is in a nursing home battling dementia and doesn’t know how I am. We cannot take him out of the nursing home and he would not understand at all what is going on.

my father was offered the position, but declined to attend my wedding altogether. My older brother (he’s 9 years older) was also an option – but he’s providing live ceremony music so logistically, he was out.

I asked my mom and she graciously agreed (looong history of issues with my mom, especially in regards to getting married) so I was very grateful and surprised when she accepted without making a huge deal of it.

if she had said no, there was also the option of my Father-In-Law (we’re very close) or walking by myself (which I honestly did not have an issue with doing).
