@MrsFullerToBe:  The FGs walking with you would be a cute idea!  And since you do know your officiant pretty well, that also sounds like a good option as well.  It will all work out!  πŸ™‚

@MrsFullerToBe:  If you wanted to do the Maid/Matron of Honor thing you could always have the best man walk in with your Fiance so that way you have some symmetry. But if you’re really close to your officiant you could do that too, the only drawback is they are normally the ones that say “Please rise” for when you enter… Whatever you choose it will be amazing!!! πŸ™‚

In your situation, i would walk down alone. It’s really the only way to prevent any hurt feelings.

I think walking down the aisle with your husband to be would be a great idea :). You’ll have someone to hold on to and you two can ”take the plunge” together!

I would recommend a first look being photographed before hand πŸ™‚

Why don’t you have your mother walk you down, if she wants too?  Whoever walks you down should be someone that you feel close with.  Unless you are really close to someone in your FH’s family it would seem kind of odd to have them walk you down.

I’m so sorry for your loss… I’m a daddy’s girl too, and I can’t imagine the pain you must be going through. πŸ™

I love the idea of walking down by yourself with a picture of your father in the bouquet. So it’s like he will be there with you in a way.

I would ask the uncle that has the daughter where you live… even if she doesn’t “understand” it’s your big day, not hers.

I was in a similar boat, I, too lost my father and was a daddy’s girl.  I didn’t feel right having my mom walk me down the aisle.. we dont’ have the “best” relationship and I couldn’t imagine anyone other than my father walking me down sooooo I decided to walk half way by myself and then I had my husband walk half way and meet me and we then walked the rest of the way together.  I came out and stood at the end of the aisle until he walked halfway and stopped, then I walked to him.  It was perfect.  I actually got a lot of compliments on it and it felt “right” to us.  Do whatever feels right to you… it’s your day and it’s your decision.  πŸ™‚

You could walk alone, and have your Fiance walk down halfway to meet you, then continue the journey together. I always think that is so sweet when couples do that.

Walk with your maid of honor and have the best man at the front, waiting with the groom. That’s fairly common.

My DH and I walked together down the aisle. We liked the symbolism of us facing marriage together, giving ourselves to one another, side by side, hand in hand.
