I never thought about the other half meeting me half way...I kind of like that.
As for the idea of having your FI meet you halfway, I really love the symbolism of both of you walking for a bit on your own (life before you met), meeting halfway (layers of symbolism here), and then begining your new journey into marriage together. Regardless of what you ladies decide, I know your ceremonies will be beautiful and special.

Well then my grandmother (who can't be there) said that I should have my mom walk me down. I don't really want this but then figured okay maybe I should and maybe i'm weird for wanting to do it solo.
I still haven't really talked to my mom about it, so I don't know her take. But like someone else said, I would much rather have my mom get to see me walk down the aisle.
BTW: I do really love the symbolism in FI meeting halfway....If my mom is okay with not walking me down...then i think I will talk to FI about the halfway thing...

There's this part of me that despises the symbol of being given away. I am a grown woman and besides, I am not something that can be "given" away.
My mom (divorced from my dad) had a bit of a freak-out when I told her I didn't really want my dad to walk me down, as did my MOH. Maybe I'm being stubborn, but I just don't want to do it.
Happily married since 2008

My mom thinks I should but I may only give in to this if my dad seems upset about it...which I dont think he would...he's not one for centre of attention gigs...lol
