    So our wedding is coming up in August--and I would prefer to walk down the aisle by myself. However, my dad and his wife will be attending the wedding ceremony. I am worried about offending my dad by not asking him to walk me down the aisle, but we havent always had the best relationship. he is closer to my step sister than to me, and for a couple years we didnt even talk. Im not sure what to do. My aunt took the non-traditional route and was escorted down the aisle by her husband. We are not having a very traditional or formal event, but Im still not sure what to do. Who is walking you down the aisle? What do you think about choosing to walk by yourself?

        I'm going down with my daughter and my dad, to be honest i hadn't really planned on going down with my dad, with it not being a traditional wedding, it didn't occur to me,but then i thought he might as well! I think it's nice to walk yourself down, do what makes you happy, it's your big day, don't worry about anyone else!

          I'm walking down with my dad but that's because we have a really good relationship. If you don't want your dad to escort you, then you don't have to. I've read previous posts from other b2bs walking themselves down the aisle or having someone other than their fathers escort them. It's your wedding- do what makes you happy!

            It’s an honor for a father to walking his daughter down the aisle, however I’m not so sure your dad deserves any honor since he didn’t speak to you for years and you don’t have the best relationship with him. The nerve of him!!! I say walk yourself down the aisle and when you see him, thank him for coming to the wedding like you would any other invited guest.

                Since my dad is not attending, I plan to walk by myself. However, fmil thinks I should ask an uncle or something. But we'll see. I think you should do whatever makes you happy.

                  I was a tad torn between my step-dad out of obigation or my brother. Ultimately I picked my little brother (Not so little 28 years old and 6'3") and I am very happy with it. I think it's perfectly fine as well to walk by yourself and own it :)
                  Good luck!

                      I do not think your dad will be offended considering your relationship. Its your day and you need to do what makes you happiest and most comfortable. My dad will not be attending mine and I've wondered what I would do as well and considering I've been pretty independent of my family my whole life - it seems fitting to walk my independent self down the aisle!
