    My dilemma is that we just found out my dad is having heart surgery two days before my wedding...its not serious or life-threatening...but he will obviously not be attending my wedding

    My dilemma now is finding someone to walk me down the aisle.

    Do you all think its weird to walk down with my 2 year old son?? He is the ringbearer anyway, and is a rambunctious little fella that needs the company while walking down to keep him from running wild. I personally think it will look cute, him all dressed up in his little tux....and hes such a cutie-pie!! lol...biased :)

    Anyway, what do you guys think?? Weird or cute??

      I think that's a great idea! It serves two purposes... he's one of the most important men in your life, and it's behaviour control! Genius!

        I think that is a cute idea, and I think it will be really meaningful for you too!

          I say go for it. It will be priceless when he gets older and sees the pics of him walking mommy down the aisle.

            Sorry about your father!
            Wonderful idea about your son. I'm sure it will be cute!

              It is a very cute idea! But he cant necessarily "walk" you down the aisle lol.. it'll be more like YOU walking HIM down the aisle haha. Do you maybe have an older brother that could walk you and your son be on the other side of you? Either choice is adorable!! So sorry to hear about your dad! I know how that must feel

                I say it is an awesome plan. I am sure your father will be happy with choice for his replacement.

                  I think that would be adorable. I hope all goes well for your dad.

                    Aww, that's such a cute idea! Alternatively, if your FFIL is part of the wedding, I'm sure he would love the honour of walking you down the aisle. I had my son walk with me, but he's in his 20's, so no worries about who was walking who down the aisle, LOL!

                    P.S. I hope you're dad's surgery is successful and that he has a speedy recovery. I'm sure he's bummed about the timing

                      Thanks everyone for your kind words for my dad :) The timing is really sucky, but his health is way more important to me. My FILs are going to film everything for him so he doesn't miss a thing.

                      I think it would be very special to have Raiden(my son) walk me down. My 4 year old is the FG, so to have them both included in our wedding is super special.

                      My FMIL suggested having a friend walk me down, but i think since we aren't doing the whole traditional church wedding anyway, anything goes...& my dad is very happy with the decision. He says that the ONLY "little' man good enough to replace him is his grandson..lol

                      Thanks again girls!!
