Just wondering who people will (or did have) walk them down the aisle on their wedding day?

I'm not so keen on my Dad walking me down the aisle as we're not very close and it would just seem fake IYKWIM...

TIA smile.gif

No longer here...

I'm having both my mum & my dad walk me down the aisle.

My dad is walking me down the aisle.
My sister could not decide between dad and step dad so she is having our 9 year old half brother walk her down.

My 19 year old brother. We lost our Dad when I was 7, and my Mum would just make me cry!

I'm going to have a 'mother/daughter' dance instead of the father/daughter dance though - to the song "Wind beneath my wings" (it's a song she loves, and will be a surprise - I imagine the tears will start flowing!)

At long last, our baby boy is here!

I am walking down by myself... I dont have a relationship with my father and I have always been very independent.

I did consider asking and uncle, but he has two daughters, and not that they would have been upset, but I feel it is more thier right IYKWIM.

My young brother has offered (he is 16) and I know if I get emotional he will be there for me, but at this stage I am happy to go it alone.

The other option is H2B and I go together, but we are seeing each other before the ceremony and Lee still wants to incorperate some tradition into the day.

Do whatever makes you comfortable and happy, and don't just have someone because you should. Goodluck with your decision smile.gif

Both my parents walked with me down the aisle. If you don't feel like being walked by your father then I suggest walking alone like Hope. What about your mother?

My father died a couple of years before I was married.

My brother walked me down the aisle.

My father walked me down the aisle and my mother walk ahead of us, with my 2.5 yr old nephew who was our ringbearer.

I had my father and my step father walk me down the aisle. I am very close to both of them and it meant alot to me.

If you arent that close with your Dad, noone has to walk you down the aisle at all.

Or, you could have a brother, uncle, cousin, your mum or a good friend do the duties.

Our daughters walked in front of me and my 11yr old son walked with me, hubby and I had been together 10 and a half years before we got married so getting my father to give me away seemed silly, I was careful not to say to the kids that I was being given away it was just us walking down the 'aisle' to daddy. smile.gif I think you should just do whatever makes you comfortable.

I went the traditional route, me and daddy. Although he wasn't being very "traditional" was calling out to my MOH as she walked down the aisle. They have a very good relationship and always tease each other so he was calling out his pet name for her as she walked down lol.

My mum walked me down the aisle, my dad was there but we don't have a close relationship. It wouldn't have felt right to have dad do it, I felt mum deserved that honour smile.gif

I am having my Dad on one side, and my 6 yr old DD on the other side.

Then when we do the Father / Daughter dance, H2B and DD will also dance together.

H2B and I will walk down the aisle together. We feel it is more symbolic of our relationship.

My dad will be walking me down the aisle, coz we are incredibly close.

However, my FSIL is having her friend walk her down the aisle when she marries my brother in November as she has no relationship with her father.

You might consider your mum or a close friend or sibling, you don't need to have you dad if you don't want to. Its your wedding which means: YOUR CHOICE!
