Hes only 2 and hopefully I won't end up chasing him around, but its a solution & he is one of the most important people in my life
I think whatever we all do it will be great.
On another note my Father keeps writing my Mom emails about how he is so mad that my grandfather will be walking me down the aisle or coming to the wedding. But I feel like my grandfather has been far more of a Father to me then my Dad ever was. Hope you ladies have a wonderful wedding no matter who walks you down the aisle.

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!
As for Megan24 - as you just read , my parents might not come either (my dad wouldn't go without my mom) so I may be in the same boat. I think it looks very nice to have the bride walk down on her own. There is that moment when all you see is the bride walking toward her future husband and their eyes meet. They share a smile that seems to hide their secret thoughts and wishes. It makes me cry more to see a bride on her own (she goes from being one to becoming two). Man I'm full of cheese today!

Anyways, what she did had me bawling like a baby. It was very symbolic. She stopped at the end of the aisle (before walking down) and her fiance actually walked down the aisle to go get her, and they both walked down together. It was her way of showing that her fiance is now the new man in her life and is most important to her. Soon as the music started playing and you realized that she wasn't walking down, but he was coming to get her and they were going together, it was just a cry fest!! It's another option you can consider.
