Second Time or Older Brides

I am really struggling with something here. I don't know if I should walk myself down the aisle or have my dad walk with me. I am a second time bride married before in 2009. I am 32 but do not have any children as I know some older brides have their son walk them down the aisle. I just don't know...

I just don't know what to do. My dad and I have a close relationship but he has already walked me down the aisle once. If he does walk me down the aisle, he will have to rent a tux which is $170.... this is the only cost I would ask of him. My FH and I are covering the cost of the entire wedding.
It is my FH's first wedding and when the topic came up when we went to look at tuxes, he just assumed my dad would walk me down.
I just really hate making decisions 😬. We are going to Disney for our honeymoon and we went to 4 different stores yesterday before I finally decided which shoes I wanted to go with lol.

    I'll be 39 walking down the aisle for the second time and I am definitely having my dad by my side. It means more to me now than it ever did before because he's seen me through so many trials and tribulations with my divorce and life since being married. Also this may be the last time he will get to give me away and this is special to me.

    I am 38 years old with no kids and totally relate. I’m walking myself down the aisle. Actually my fiancé is meeting me halfway and we are walking the rest of the way together. It just didn’t make sense to have my dad walk me because of my age and how long I haven’t lived at home but also I don’t like the tradition of being “given” to someone.
