Are you having your parents walk down the aisle?
so i am trying to decide what to do... i have been to weddings when family (parents) are already sitting & i have been to them when they walk down the isle before the wedding party. im having a hard time deciding what we should do. asking the FH doesnt help because he thinks everything should be simple & easy & if i stress about it, then we shouldnt do it. i come from a divorced family though too... so my mom & my step dad would walk, his parrents & then i was thinking about having 2 of my brothers walk my stepmom down the isle...
what are you doing???

My brother whos my best friend is walking me down. My dad has never met my FH and i dont get along with him well anymore. I didnt feel it was right for him to do it plus ive been married once and they really could careless about the fact that im getting married again (yeah my parents are jerks) I have an ex step father whos in my life and i didnt feel right asking hims since my real dads going to be there.
So my brother is going to do it. :)

I don't think JFL is asking about who walks her--she's asking if the parents should precede the wedding party.


We're not doing that, but we're also having a VERY small ceremony at a state park. (And no one is walking me down the aisle.)

We're not entirely sure at this point. Her dad's not going to be there. Our venue has a sidewalk that kind of has a Y shape to it where it goes around either side of the venue. We thought about walking around the venue from different sides and meeting up together at where it becomes one sidewalk and having my dad be there and he could walk us both down the aisle with one on each arm. We aren't really sure about it yet, though. I also read a post by Sharine777&dai69 that had this article in it. http://www.lemondrop.com/2010/04/29/wedding-trend-my-dad-didn-t-give-me-away/
We might just decide to walk ourselves down the aisle.

thanks everyone... but my main question is are your parents preceding you down the isle??? my dad is going to be walking me down the isle, but should i have my mom and her husband and my FIL's walk down the isle before the wedding party?

At my brother's wedding, my dad walked my mom and grandmother down the aisle ahead of the wedding party. My SIL was walked down the aisle by both her her parents.

I'm trying to figure out how to deal with this too, because I assume my dad will walk me down the aisle, but I don't really want my mom to walk me as well. I think it'll just be awkward. So, I was thinking about having my mom, my grandmother and my FH step-mother walk down together and then the bridal party, then me and my dad. I'm worried my mom might be offended though. Sheesh.. Luckily I have time to think about it.

Both of our parents are divorced and both of our parents walked us each down the aisle.

I didn't want anyone walking me down the aisle, but whatever. It's important to my parents, even though they're divorced. My parents got divorced in college, so it's not like their significant others' have been an integral part of my life. If you don't want anyone to walk you down the aisle, then I think your order sounds good :)

My parents will be walking in front of me, after my BMs and I will walk alone. Since I'm not big on the symbolism of being "given away" but I really want my parents to be part of the ceremony, this was a good compromise.

I think I'm going to have the parents walk down, then my dad seat my mom and come back around to get me.

My mom and dad are both walking me down the aisle and FH won't have parents there. (his mother is deceased and his father is not in his life) So we don't really have this issue.
Kimmi- I also didn't like the "given away" part. We are actually thinking of a way to instead have my parents there to walk me down the aisle to meet FH and welcome him into our family, since he is really close with my parents.

I'm also unsure of what to do. My dad isn't in my life and I want my mom and stepdad to walk down, then my FH's mom and SO then his dad and wife, I think. But I don't want to walk down the aisle alone. It's too much attention on me. So idk what to do

IM THINKING OF HAVING MY BROTHERS WALK MY MOM AND STEP-MOM DOWN THE AISLE SINCE IM HAVING BOTH MY DAD AND STEP-DAD WALK ME DONW. THAT WILL HELP HAVE MY WHOLE FAMILY IN THE WEDDING EVEN IF ITS JUST FOR A LITTLE BIT. ALSO HAVE HIS MOM AND STEP-DAD WALK DOWN. HIS DAD WONT BE WALKING DOWN THE AISLE SINCE HE'S NOT A BIG PART OF OUR LIVES.
