Dad will not be attending wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi Megan,


My father will not be at my wedding as well as he does not want to travel by plane. I am a bit sad but luckily my best friend's father can walk me down the aisle as he is like a second father to me. Or I can ask either of my two brothers or even play it different and have my two little nephews walk with me. Wouldn't that be cute?


Maybe you can have both your grandfather and mom walk you. Why not have both of them on either side? Do whatever feels good in your heart. It is your special day!

My father passed away five years ago, and my mother a year ago. When my dad died, I knew I'd ask my uncle who was like a second father to me. He passed away a year ago as well.


Since this is a difficult subject for me, I was just going to walk alone. Until last night at the pre-Jamaica get together my cousin asked if I was having another uncle (my dad's brother) to walk me since he is going. Now I'm thinking about it all over again, and really he's the closest to a father I have. I may ask him a couple days before the wedding, I know he will be honored. I'm leaving in three days and getting married in 8, so I better think fast!


I just pictured walking alone all this time so it's strange to think about so last minute!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
