Who should give me away?

Recommended Posts

I walked down w/ my mom! I let her decide because although I knew she would be honored to do it...I didn't want it to take away from her seeing me walk down the aisle. For some reason I thought was important but looking back she was w/ me all during getting ready and everything and walking me down the aisle was the best choice! :)

Ok, I'm already crying! Good luck!
Yep, you've got me tearing up too.

I think that if you're close to your Mom then that's a great idea! I think she'll be honoured & excited to do this for/with you.

I love this!!! I also was struggling with this, thought about FIL, but since my FH has been there since the day my father was diagnosed with cancer I think this would be just perfect. Thank you for posting this!

I've thought about this 2. My dad lives on the other side of the world and so isn't going and my mum died 8 years ago. I thought I'll walk down on my own no great shakes then FI said that his mother's new hubby would probably want to do it!!

 

After I stopped the smoke coming out of my ears and nose !! I've asked one of my really good friend's husbands to do it - he's got 2 sons so is happy to do it.

 

If I had a choice I would walk myself but this seemed the lesser of 2 evils

what a difficult decision you have! I like the idea of walking halfway and having your fiance come and get you for the other half! So nice! I don't know what I'm going to do. I'll be either walking down myself, having my 6 year old son (he will be 8 by the wedding) walk me down, or my mom will (or maybe my mom and my son?! hmm...). Anyway, either way you do it, your father will be there with you!

I lost my father when I was little, so I asked my mom to walk me down the asile and she was very happy that I asked her. She was both my parents for me growing up and I could not imagine asking anyone else.

I love that idea of your son doing it. What a great way to make him feel like he had a major part in the day!

I think I will go with my mom. I really like the idea of her saying, her father and I do when asked who will give me away. I know he will be there in spirit, but it's still really hard. I found a beautiful poem on another post that I am trying to incorporate into the ceremony somehow.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
