Dad will not be attending wedding

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone not having their Dad walk them down the aisle? My Father will not be attending the wedding because we do not speak anymore. Anyways. How have you dealt with this issue if your Dad is not coming? Who is walking you down the isle?

 

Thanks

Megan

Hi Megan,

Neither of my parents will be attending our wedding. My Mother is unable to attend due to health reasons and my Dad can not leave her, which I fully understand. My daughter will be walking with me.

Megan - My dad did not come to my wedding either. Actually only 7 people did, one being my younger brother. I am really close with him and he insisted that he walked me. I was tossing the idea of walking by myself or asking him. Do you have someone close to you that you could ask? Or if it doesn't bother you, you could walk by yourself?

My dad isnt going to be attending either. I considered my cousin who I'm very close with but he'll be in Afgan so i'll be going it alone...

 

Look at it this way all the attention will be on you if you do walk solo :)

Megan - my dad is attending but will Not be walking me down the aisle. He gets really uncomfortable in front of groups and that was the last thing I wanted to ask him, even if it is my wedding day!! I'm either going to have my sister walk with me, or suck it up and go alone - even though that idea kind of terrifies me since I'm not good in front of people either (even if it is friends!). If I could tell EVERYONE to look away until I'm at the front then I'd totally be good :)

 

Just do whatever you're comfortable with. If that means walking on your own or having a close friend walk with you then go with it! It works out especially well if you've got uneven numbers in your wedding party like me!

My brother is walking me down the isle, so long as he and his wife are able to go. If not, then I want to walk by myself. Do whatever you're most comfortable with. It's your day, do it your way!

My dad passed away almost 5 years ago and to be honest the idea of walking down the aisle without him is pretty upsetting for me. I know that no matter what I do, I'm going to be thinking about how I wish he was there with me sad.gif

 

For myself, I haven't decided yet whether to walk down with my mom or to go it alone, but I think either will be fine. Time's are changing, and especially with a destination wedding anything goes! Also, as another poster mentioned, if you have a brother or uncle or someone like that who you would like to walk you down the aisle that would be fine too.

My Dad cannot make it, which makes me sad. But I knew going into this that many people would not be able to go. Luckily my brother is going and he will be walking me down. If not I would have asked my mom or walked solo.

Thank you girls. Sorry that you are all in the same situation that I am or even worse that your father has passed away.

 

I am going to have my grandfather walk me down the aisle I was really debating on him or my Mom. They have both played such huge roles in my life. I do feel in a way guilty that I did not invite my father to the wedding. But we are not on good terms at all. And my Mother and him do not get a long what so ever. I just want it to be comfortable for everyone.

 

Thanks again ladies for all your kind words.
