Who should walk me down the isle???

Recommended Posts

Alright so this has been the HARDEST decision of my wedding so far. My parents got a divorce when I was 5 and Im pretty sure it was a really bitter divorce because we moved from Ontario to Alberta and I didnt talk to or visit my dad at all. When I was 17 I decided I wanted to get in touch with him and have been talking to/visiting him ever since(it has been good but still a little awkward because I didn't know him most of my life) As well my mom re married when I was 8 so I have had a step dad since then who I get along with. Originally I was going to eliminate this problem by having my grandpa walk me down the isle but he passed away right before we got engaged. So now I'm thinking the only way to do this without hurting someone is to have both of them walk me down the isle. Is this weirdhuh.gif What are your thoughts?

Do you have a brother that you are close to?? My parents are divorced, they get along well but i am super close with my brother and wanted him part of my wedding so I am having him walk me down the aisle.

What about having your mom walk you down the aisle? Whatever you pick wont be weird! Its you wedding and you should do what you want and feel the most comfortable doing :)

I don't even speak to my dad so I too have thought a lot about who's going to walk me down the aisle:

 

-Stepfather passed away 3.5 years agp, so that is not an option.

-Grandfather passed away two years ago, so that was eliminated.

-My mom and I don't always get along really well, but still she has always been my mom. I originally thought she would, but she seemed weirded out by that. Her suggestion:

-My 12 year old brother. This is okay, and the idea is growing on me.

 

With all of that said, you have to do what you are most comfortable with. Now that I've said out loud so much that my brother will be walking me down the aisle, I feel better about it. I can't imagine doing it any other way. I think your mom would be a great person if she's been the one remaining consistency in your life; but I know mine didn't think it was a great idea. Again, we don't really always get along so that may be why. I think it's okay for you to have them both walk you down the aisle. It's your day, so do what makes you happiest and will give you the best memory. Good luck!

If you consider both to be your father then have them both do it. I don't think there is anything wrong with it. Are you worried one would be offended if you chose the other? It's your wedding, have whoever you want walk you down the isle. Don't worry about anyone else, do what you feel is right for you.

I think it's fine as long as you are ok with it, the question is how will they feel about it. Your father may say he thinks your step-dad should do it or vice versa and then that makes the decision easier for you. You have to go after what you really want but keep in mind you are asking another person to do something and how they may respond to your request.

Ya I guess I am kind of worried about hurting one of their feelings. I like the idea of my mom because were really close but my dad hasn't even been on a plane in his life so him coming to Jamaica is a big deal and I know he really want's to be a part of it...Lots of thinking to do I guess...I'll probably ask my mom what she thinks.

Thanks for all the advice :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
