I really think this is a great idea! My daughter is going to be the flower girl since she is only 5.

I think this is a great way to incorporate her into the wedding without being a bridesmaid. And I think she should wear whatever makes he feel comfortable.

i think it would be really sweet!

my grandparents renewed their vows for their 50th anniversary, and my brother (oldest grandchild) walked her down the aisle. everyone thought it was a great touch.

Not odd at all! I have seen/ hear of many brides whose children walk them down the aisle. Its a very beautiful gesture of joining your families 🙂

I think it sounds amazing. As for a dress, maybe something in the same color as the bridesmaids, but different. It’ll give her some little say in your wedding and could be a nice shopping day for the two of you.

i think it’s a great idea, and i agree with TheFutureMcBride that she could wear something in the same color as the bridesmaids, but just a different style. that way, she would be tied into the “feel” of the wedding but wouldn’t look exactly like a bridesmaid.

I will hopefully have my daughter walk me down the aisle. Fiance will meet us halfway and then we will all walk up together.

Wonderful idea…my son (13) is walking me down the aisle. I would have her dress similar to the Bridesmaid or Best Man (color) or other complimentary color. In my program I list my son as:

Bride is escorted by her son 

I think she will be honored to do this. Unless she thinks you are too old to walk with. LOL

I think this is a sweet idea. How about a different version of the other BMs dresses? Maybe longer or the same style in a different color?

I think it would be sweet.  I wanted my 11 year old son to walk me, but didn’t want to deal with the family drama that would ensue.  It would be very touching.
