who will walking me down the aisle
Posted 13 August 2007 - 10:26 AM
Up until recently i just thought i would walk down the aisle by myself, but considerign how emotional i've been getting at weddings lately, i may need someone there to steady me.
I may have mentioned this before, but both of my parents have passed away. And had my wedding been here in NY there is an uncle that was very close with my dad that would have been the natural choice. But he is older now and sick, so he wont be making the trip.
then in greece there is my mother's brother, who is also sick(he had a kidney transplant 20 yrs ago) and his health changes week to week. so he may not be able to make the 1/2 hr flight....but even if he was ok, we havent really had the best relationship.. better over the last couple of years, but not
then there is my cousin...since my parents we older when they had me, i am the baby in the family, and my cousin is 30 yrs older than me....Actually he is my first cousin's husband, I grew up hanging out with them...although he has been around, not exactly parental.
but even still it just feels wrong to have anyone else walk me down the aisle, almost like a betrayal to thier memory.. i know this is silly, but i can help feeling that...But in the same turn that like i said before i may just need someone next to me
Sorry for the long vent... thanks for reading, i just needed to get this out.

So thanks for all your kind words ladies...I was thinking about walking with jay, but i kind of like the idea that the first time he will see me will be at the church. While hes waiting up there with his brother.
I know this would be the easiest solution, but i think i'm going to think about it when i get there, and along the lines of what Glenda was saying. My mother would have wanted her brother to do it. So I'll see if he ends up coming.
And so now i have to track down some bouquet frames! I leave a week from today

I try to look at it as though it is one family member "offering" you to the new family so it doen't need to be someone who raised you rather a close member of the family.
As far as the frames they have some stuff that will work in the bead section at Michaels.
