Father in wheelchair - how to walk down the aisle?
My father is paraplegic/wheelchair bound and I told him that I still want him to walk me down the aisle. Any other brides have to work with this before or any suggestions on how to do this?

can another family member (mom, sibling) push the wheelchair while your dad holds your hand?

That's really sweet and I think having your mom push the wheel chair while he holds your hand is a great idea.

I have seen a bride ride down on the lap of her father that paraplegic with a motorized wheelchair. It was awesome....everybody attending the wedding was smiling and crying at the same time.

My FFIL is in a wheel chair. My SIL got married 2 years ago, and they walked down the aisle together. He wheeled himself and she walked next to him
