Is This Weird- Both Parents Walking Me Down the Aisle?

Recommended Posts

I had no idea this was a Jewish tradition. I also had both parents walk me down the aisle, I wanted both of there so it was what I did. I don't think it is weird at all and I don't think anyone else will :)

No, not weird, I'm thinking about doing the same thing. It took them both to raise me, and I want to honor them both. I don't think anyone will find it odd either.

Just realized that I have not thought about this at all!!

 

For my first wedding I had my grandpa walk me down the aisle. I've always been closer to him than my own dad, and respected him more as a father figure too. But he passed away last winter.sad.gif

 

So now I don't know who to choose. I could choose my brother, but I think it might hurt my dad if I don't choose him again, especially after all his attempt at reaching out to me ever since my first wedding. Things are not so rough with my him anymore, so I guess I could choose him to make him happy.

 

I really like the idea of having both parents do it though, as my mom is really the one who has been there for me all these years.

I know that the OP's wedding has already passed, but I wanted to say that this is what I did ... I walked down the aisle part way, met my dad at the top of the stairs, then met my mom at the bottom of the stairs and the 3 of us walked down the "actual" aisle.

 

here you can see the stairs in the background - my dad was waiting at the top for me, and my mom at the bottom.

I am also having both parents walk me down the aisle. I don't think it's weird at all, it is becoming a lot more popular now....

Me too. I hadn't really thought of it, but my mom actually suggested it. So what can I say? But also, it seems only fair to have both my parents or neither (the whole idea of being "given away" irks me), seeing as they both raised me.

I also think that it will offend the least number of people. Neither dad can argue that mom was and is #1, even if it is tradition. Plus I could never pick one over the other. I wish all of them could walk me, but 4 people down the aisle...a little much. I will try to include my dads in other special ways on that day...any ideas??

This is exactly what Im going through right now. Mom and step dad raised me but still have a relationshipo with my real dad. I agree with you that my mom is the most influential person in my life but I really want both my dad's too. Its so hard to pic without hurting someone.

i think its a cute idea. Do what you want, it's your wedding. I agree with what some of the other girls have said, there are no rules with a destination wedding. So, if you and your mom are super close by all means have both parents walk down the aisle. I think it would be cute and your mom would love it!

I think its a great idea and don't think its strange at all. When you get married you do leave your parents and your spouse becomes your provider/caretaker for lack of better words. I wish I had both parents to walk me down the aisle but unfortunately I won't be able to. My father passed away a little over a year ago from Cancer. And my mother just for whatever reasons (none good enough) has decided at the very last minute not to get her passport nor book the trip. I had already planned for my God father to walk me down the aisle, he had been my father's best friend since Junior High School and he had known me before I was even born. And adopted all of my brothers and sisters as his "honorary God Children".

    • 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.
