Who should give me away?

Recommended Posts

I lost my dad too and ever since I got engaged that was one of the first questions on my mind: who's going to walk me down the aisle?


At first I was thinking about maybe my older brother, or my uncle (one of dad's brothers), or possibly a really good friend of my dad's who has known me since I was born... well I'm still not really sure about any of those choices to be honest. They just all pale in comparison to having my dad walk me down the aisle.


So then I was thinking that I would just go alone, and actually I think I might be ok with that. But then my mom said when I asked her what she thought: "well of course I'll walk you down the aisle!". I love my mom and if she wants to do this I'll probably let her, but somehow it still doesn't feel quite right to me... like as if walking down the aisle with my mom will remind me that oh yeah, I have to be walked down the aisle by my mom cause my dad's not here to do it.


Anyways, I think if your mom wants to walk you down the aisle and you like the idea then that would be the best. I really like the idea of her giving you away on behalf of her and your dad. Actually that idea makes me like the idea of my mom walking me down the aisle a little more too =)

i agree on asking your mom. i have thought about this too. unfortunatly i am not that close with my dad so i doesn't feel right to ask him to 'give me away' so i will think i will be walking down the isle with my hubby. either that or walk alone.

My grandad is giving me away (subject to health etc).


My biological father is not dead (not that I know off) but he unfortunatly is not a nice person. I am getting married abroad to limit the possiblility of him showing up to ruin it.


However, I still had the same problem - who will give me away.


My mum would not be interested. She's not the type of person who would plike that sort of stuff. I've got two brothers but which one would do it?

Now my grandad is the perfect solution for my situation.


I know you will find some sort of resolution which will suit you and your family- I wish you all the best

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
