My dad was in a really bad work accident which left him a partial quadriplegic. They didn’t think he’d be able to walk again but with a lot of therapy and prayer he’s walking. But during those 12 years of rehab to get him walking, my mom pretty much raised me and my sister so I’m having BOTH my mom and dad walk me down the aisle. I don’t want either to feel left out because they both played such an important part in my life. I think having your uncle walk you down the aisle is a beautiful way to honor your dad.

Awwww what a great way to honor [email protected]futuremrsthurman:I’m so sorry to hear about your father, I’m glad he will be able to walk with you. 😀 I haven’t really discussed this yet but I would like to have both my mother and father, but I would feel a bit bad about leaving my stepmother out, since she’s been with us for over 15 years.. :-/

My dad is walking me dowm the aisle….
My cousin is getting married in October of this year and since her father has passed on and he has 3 living brothers left, she asked my grandfather who is the oldest of the 3 to walk her down.

@princesspretti24: thats a wonderful way to honor who your father was and will always be to you! @futuremrsthurman: its good to hear that your father has beaten the odds and is walking again! Unfortunately, my father has been addicted to drugs since I was 2years old, so my parents have been divorced for a long time. Therefore my one and only parent, my mom has the pleasure of walking me down the aisle. She raised me to be the woman I am today, so no other person was more fitting, not even my many uncles.

My mom is walking me down the aisle. My parents got divorced when I was 12 and my mom has worked her ass off my entire life (always working 3 jobs). My dad has been living in Germany for the last 5 years and I rarely see him but I am not looking forward to telling him that he is not walking me down the aisle.

My dad passed away suddenly in 2007. At first i had decided to have my younger brother walked me down the aisle. But after discussing it with my mom i have decided to walked down the aisle with my uncle (my mom’s older brother).

My dad passed away when I was 19, so I am asking my uncle (his younger brother) to walk me down. We will also light a candle for him before the ceremony.

I haven’t talked to my father since I was 15. So, I walked down the aisle alone; honestly, I’m happy I did it that way. My bouquet was so heavy, I needed both of my hands to hold it. Once I arrived to the altar and the minister asked, “Who gives this woman to be married to this man?” My mother stood and said screamed, “I do!”
I dunno, maybe because I am an only child and it’s pretty much been my mother and I all of my life, I really did feel as if I missed out on anything.

My brother-in-law is walking me down the aisle. He has been with my sister since I was 6yrs old and I see him as my dad more than my father. My parents divorced when I was 5 leaving my mom to raise 5 kids(all girls) alone.
