    Walk yourself down. It won't be weird at all. Like some of the other girls said its just more focus on you :)

        Not weird at all. My Dad passed away when I was in highschool. I walked myself down the aisle. No big deal. Had one of my close guy friends made it to our wedding, I may have chose to have one of them walk me down, but I was fine going it alone.

          Not weird at all! I chose to go that route even though my parents will be there. Feels more like me!

            No not weird at all!
            If I had the guts to tell my Dad I wanted to walk down the aisle on my own I would! I don't like the whole 'giving away' tradition, but know it means a lot to my Dad - even though we're not that close! Wish I had the guts......!

                definitely not weird at all, I'm hoping my father will be there but he doesn't want to travel to Mexico so I'm prepared to walk myself down the aisle

                  Traditional ceremonies are a thing of the past. You'll be fine walking down the isle by yourself. I'm thinking of doing the same as my father is deceased, my brother my not attend, and I want my mother to see me walking down the isle. She had something to say about it but at the end of the day its "my day".

                      aww thanks again ladies

                      a coworker overheard my conversation about this with a (close) coworker and said "it's such a shame your father doesn't want to walk you down the aisle. That doesn't make for a very good start to a marriage".

                      i was so shocked i didn't know what to say. she made me want to run to the washroom and cry....but maybe i'm just being too sensitive.....

                      we're already having a chinese tea ceremony beforehand - the part our parents really want us to have, so the western ceremony doesn't mean much to them, it's for us.

                      much better now. yup. its what i want, who cares what ppl might say, as long as we're happy.
