my father and son both walking me down aisle?

Recommended Posts

HI,

 

We are only having a MOH and BM. This is my second marriage. My 20 year old dgth is my MOH. I want my son to be part of the ceremony, he is 15. Any thoughts?? What do you think of my dad walking me half way and my son the other half??

That's exactly what I will be doing.

 

I am only having a MOH and BM as well. My 10 year old daughter is a flowergirl/jr bridesmaid but I want her to walk me down the aisle. She told me that "Grandpa" should be the one escorting me. However, as this is my second marriage, and a super non-traditional ceremony, I want my daughter to be the one to "give me away" to my FI, her step-dad, and stand with us as we exchange our vows.

 

So, we have decided that my Dad will walk me down half way and give me to my daughter and walk behind us to take his seat and have her walk me the rest of the way, take my FI's hand and then give it to me.

 

I think that it's a great way to include your son in the wedding. I too have also considered having my father and daughter walk me down together if it won't work out with the original plan.

I'm glad you asked this... I wanted to include both my father and step-father in the ceremony and wasn't sure the best way. I love my father dearly but grew up in the house with my step-father. I was planning to have both of them walk me down the aisle up until the front row where I will give my step-dad a peck on the cheek and he will have a seat, then have my dad be the one to actually "give me away". I'm curious if anyone else has any other ideas?

I was planning to have both my adult son and my father walk with me, and I was really excited about it. But it now seems that Dad won't make it. He just entered hospice care and probably won't be with us for much longer. He would have been 90 for my wedding, and was really looking forward to it.

I am sorry to hear your dad might not make it. My FI just lost his mother, so this is a bitter sweet time and will be a emotional wedding for his entire family. We are going to try our best to honor her memory at the wedding while trying not to make it a sad time. There is a couple of threads on here regarding memorial things to do at ceremony/reception

I don't know if your doing a sand ceremony, but I am also doing a family sand ceremony- wording includes kids and they pour sand in with us, uniting all of us...

I did think about having the both walk with me, just don't know which one would be better. It will be hard to hold flowers if walking with both maybe. So ladies which wayhuh.gif

    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!  
    • I want to testify to the glory of Lord Masuka, the spell caster that helped me restored my marriage. It all started when my husband came back home acting weird for no reason, I tried to find out what was going on but he refused talking to me for days, he woke up one morning and say to me that he needs a break and he left without any clue where he's going, I was so shocked and devastated because I have done nothing wrong to him other than being a supporting wife, I cried all day, one fateful evening I saw series of comments on how Lord Masuka had restored collapsed marriages, so I decided to give him a try. He assured me that all hope are not lost yet, I followed the instructions he gave me and to my greatest surprise my husband who had left me for  months without a call came to my work place and begged for forgiveness, now we are happy family because of Lord Masuka. To as many of you having issues in your relationship, marriages Lord Masuka is the answer to your problem, contact him today via email lordmasukaspelltemple@hotmail.com or WhatsApp him +1(234)-307-0752.

    • You are definitely not alone in this I am sure!  As much as you want all of your friends and family there, DWs can be tough for a lot of people to make.  Some for financial reasons and others because they have a weird chip on their shoulder about you having one.  It sucks initially but you aren't getting married for them!  And for all of the people who make it, you will create an even stronger bond.  I hope it gets better and please keep us posted!
