Walking down the aisle

Tori Doll, on 29/October/2018 at 10:55 Posted in Wedding ceremony

So this is a question that I have been putting off but figure - why not survey the rest of the community??

Will you be walking down the aisle with your dad?

Walking down the aisle 1

Will it be both parents?

Walking down the aisle 2

How about you and your MomWalking down the aisle 3

Flying solo?Walking down the aisle 4

How about a kid filling the role?Walking down the aisle 5

Any body else like an uncle or brother?

I myself have yet to decide... Do I want to go solo, with my dad, or both parents??

    He's waaayy too stubborn for a wheelchair. About 15 years ago his doctor told him he should start using a cane and he's only just started using it.

    What about if you were to get your Mom to push him in a wheelchair and you could walk with both of them?

    I would love for my dad to walk me down the aisle, but he has mobility issues and sometimes finds walking very difficult. It varies from day to day so if he isn't feeling up to it I will definitely have my mom walk with me.

    My FFIL offered to do it if my dad can't but I think he's overstepping a bit there (he's also best man so it wouldn't make sense). My dad used to have a negative opinion on my relationship with my FH but he has come a long way and even gave him his blessing to propose last year.

    At first my plan was to go solo down the aisle. Until my mom suggested I ask my step dad. As soon as she suggested it my first response was not without her too. She is my one constant my entire life. If anyone should walk with me it should be her.

    I would say that my only concern with having both parents walk me down the aisle is the fact that I am wearing a big ball gown dress and don't want them stepping on it 😂

    "What I want to do"... I was talking to my Dad on the weekend (they were moving into their new house) and I pulled him to the side to go over a song I was considering for the Father/Daughter dance - and he basically told me I will be walking with both him and my Mom...

    At the same time, I don't think I would have been able to come to a decision anyway and my Mom raised me just as much as my Dad if not more (she worked from home) so I guess it worked out in the end.

    I’ll be going with my dad. But in the end it’s about what YOU want to do!

    I will be walking down the aisle with my Dad and looking forward to having that moment with him. My Uncle/Godfather is going to escort my Mom down the aisle.

    I'm torn... I want my mom to walk me down but she actually says she thinks I should walk down solo. Still up in the air.

    I know it's totally untraditional but, my fiancee and I have decided to walk down the aisle together. We attended a wedding a few years ago for friends of ours, who were gay, and neither of them wanted to be escorted in by their parents. I loved watching them come in hand in hand as equal partners and have wanted to do the same ever since.

    I've always wanted to walk down by myself but seeing how much it means to my dad I didn't have the heart to tell him otherwise Smiley sad
