My stepdad died a few years ago and i never met my real father. Im very close to my mom and have been thinking about her being a replacement for a dad walking me down the aisle (afterall, she has been the mom and dad for a while now..) Would that be odd? Should i walk alone? Does anyone know how...

My stepdad died a few years ago and i never met my real father. Im very close to my mom and have been thinking about her being a replacement for a dad walking me down the aisle (afterall, she has been the mom and dad for a while now..) Would that be odd? Should i walk alone? Does anyone know how this is usually handled. And also, since there wont be a father and daughter dance, would a mother daughter dance be ok or just awkward?

    My father committed suicide when I was young and my mom raise 7 kids on her own for a long time before she met my step-father. So when my sister got married she didn't feel comfortable having her step-dad do the job. She called our grandpa that lived so far away to do it. Even though he didn't have much influence in our lives, it meant a lot because he was our dad's dad!

    I had both my mom and step-dad walk me down the aisle.

    I hope that you feel happy with your choice.

    I lost my father (may he rest in peace) a few years back. I have plenty of men in my family but those men did not raise me. My mom sacrificed and loved us and she is the only person that has the right to walk down the aisle with me. In fact, I'm honored. You too should be honored to walk down the aisle with the woman that gave you unconditional love all your life. It's ok to start new traditions.
