I have a great dad, I am fortunate to also have a step father that I love equally as much. Even before I got engaged things would come up like who would I have walk me down the isle. Rather then break a heart or feel a ton of guilt, I decided that my 15 year old son would. When my mother asked who I was going to have walk me down the isle the other day I had told her neither, that I am having my son do it. She said it was inappropriate as he is so young. He will be almost 16 and if people have their daughters and sons act as bridesmaids, flower girls, etc.. why can't my son escort me? Just wondering if others think my idea is inappropriate??
I have considered that idea yes.. but one of the other reasons why I like having my son with me is because my children. are from my previous relationship and I like the idea of it being "our" day.. a joining of all of us as one family, if that makes sense.
My original plan was that both of my sons would give me away, but the chapel we booked has an aisle that is possibly too narrow for three to walk down. So the current plan is my oldest son will walk me down the aisle, and he will be 17 at the time. My younger son will be almost 15. I'm still hopeful we can make it work. Worst case my younger son will be a groomsman and walk with a bridesmaid.
My dad died just before I turned 16. When I married the first time at 21 my oldest brother walked me down the aisle. I do have a stepdad now that I like, but I still feel it's more important my kids feel included, rather than making my stepdad happy. Especially with it being my second wedding I don't see how it's inappropriate in the slightest to be given away by my kids. I've never considered anything else.
When I got married last time my oldest was 3. My step dad was to walk me down the aisle and my daughter who was my flower girl (supposed to walk with my sister) grabbed my hand and walked me down the aisle. It was magical for me.
So I am having my 2 sons 6&11 walk me down the aisle BUT I can not come up with a song 🤦♀️ Does anyone have any ideas? I don’t want songs of them being all grown up and they are the ones getting married!!!
