    I haven't lost my dad, but my fiance and I decided that we will walk down the aisle together instead of my dad walking down the aisle with me.

    I have lost my dad, so I will be walking myself down the isle and will have a charm with his picture on it and then another charm with his ashes in it attached to my bouquet. I do not have any other close male relatives that I would feel comfortable playing that role.

    My brother walked me down the aisle and I wore a locket with my dad's picture in it. Then when the preacher asked "who presents this woman" (definitely used present not give, no one owns me), he responded "on behalf of those who are here and those who can not be I do"

    I lost my dad almost 12 years ago, and I’m going to ask his best friend to walk me down the aisle.

    I've been debating on walking with my mom or by myself, but I think we have decided that I'll do half by myself and the rest with my mom.

    I was planning to walk down the aisle by myself. We ended up doing an elopement/minimony thanks to Covid but are still hoping to have a bigger event in the future with our 60-80 guests. Because I'll be already married I might just walk with my husband. I've also considered having my mom walk me.

    My brother is walking me down the aisle. We have a lantern for both of my parents and a couple of their wedding pictures on our welcome table, but I am looking for something I can have one of us carry with us in memory of him (I have one of my Mom's necklaces wrapped into my bouquet).

    My Dad is still with us, but he will not be able to attend the wedding. He has MS and is completely paralyzed from his mid chest down. My plan was to have my mom walk me down the aisle but she passed away this April. I will be asking my dads brother (my uncle) to walk me down the Aisle instead. We have grown really close over the past few years and I already asked his daughters if they were okay with it.

    Either my mum or my brother will walk with me. I hadn't thought of having a momento for my dad. Maybe a train charm, as he was a train spotter.

    My father is alive but not invited. Undecided on who to ask to escort me down the aisle. Probably a close friend
