Walking the Bride Down the Aisle

Shyler, on November 5, 2019 at 10:53 AM Posted in Wedding Ceremony 0 12
Long story short... I have lived with my grandparents my whole life. My Dad is not involved in my life. My Grandpa was my father figure, however; he passed away a couple of years ago. My Grandmother is not in shape to walk down the aisle with me. I'm not comfortable enough with any of my uncles to have them walk me down. I have 2 brothers, but I don't want to have to pick between them. HELP I NEED IDEAS. Right now, the plan is to walk down by myself, but it would be special to have someone share that moment with me...

    I have a very strange relationship with my father, and I actually lived with my aunt and uncle for most of my childhood. As I've gotten older, all of those relationships have changed, and both my uncle and my father hold a unique and special place in my heart. My uncle was definitely more of my care-giver and father-figure, however. In order to avoid awkwardness, and because I like the modern-ness of walking myself down the aisle, I will be walk the first half of the way down the aisle alone. My FH will meet me half-way, and we are going to walk there rest of the way together. We fill this is symbolic of us "meeting in the middle".

    As soon as I read this my first thought was to have both of your brothers walk you down the aisle. I feel like that could be really sweet.

    If you don't want to walk alone I like the idea of both brothers walking you down the aisle.

    What about walking with your FH? I think it would be awesome to enter your ceremony and walk in together Smiley smile

    DH and I walked together to symbolize us entering our marriage as equal partners.

    If you are close with both brothers, I think it would be nice for both of them to walk you (assuming three of you will fit). I'm having both parents walk me.

    I would choose between brothers. I would walk with both of them. That’s very sweet.

    Agree with the both brothers idea. We went down the aisle 3 across. I just held my bouquet with both hands and my parents linked arms with my elbows.

    You can have both your brothers walk you down or you can have one brother walk you down and the other do your first dance. That’s my plans.

    Agree with having both walk you down! You don't need to choose. I think you do whatever will make you happy walking down the aisle. My father passed away almost 20 years ago, so I'm having my mother walk me down. Some people don't like the idea because I'm not having a man walk me down, but she raised me, so I think the honor is hers.

    A male friend? a close coworker? a cousin? I didn't have anyone either, I had two of my new stepsons give me away. The other son was a groomsman.
