Are you having your father or another family member escort you down the aisle? Or are you walking on your own with all eyes on you and your future spouse?

    I would be okay walking myself.. however, my dad and I have recently been working on our relationship and he has expressed how much he wants to walk with me. so Smiley smile that would be nice

    My dad and I have dreamed of him walking me down the aisle for forever! No way am I missing this.

    We offered for my mom to walk with us as well if she wants but she declined so it's just going to be Dad and I Smiley smile

    My dad will definitely be walking me down the isle. I’m lucky enough to still have him in my life, and we’re quite close and as the oldest daughter I think it’s important to both of us.

    No! I LOVE my parents but I'm walking down the aisle with my FW. I don't disagree with folks who have chosen to do it, but I hate the idea that my parents are giving me away.

    Just had this discussion with my Pops, who I’m really close to.

    He said he’s fine with whatever we decide. My family is pretty liberal and progressive so it’s not a must have but my FH is set on me being walked down the aisle by my dad, so I’ve agreed to do it (I’m really fine either way).

    What I like best about the decision to have my dad walk me down the aisle is that his pace is slower due to to mobility challenges, so it will allow for the song (a cover of Bob Marley’s “I Wanna Love You - my Dad is Jamaican), to play out longer than it would if I were walking by myself...so winner winner chicken dinner!

    I was escorted by my mom and dad, it just seemed like a great way to have special moments with my parents on my special day.

    Yea, I think my parents would be disappointed if we didn't do this.

    Yes. My step dad has also been in my life since I was 7, so I'll be having my dad walk me in, up to the start of the chairs, then my step dad will join us and walk to me to the end of the aisle.

    Yup, my dad. I honestly never thought I'd get married (I was 34 when I met my now fiancé, and I'll be 38 when we get married); I'd given up on the idea of walking down the aisle.

    My dad has some mental health issues from his 28+ year military service, and it may be one of the few moments he'll be mentally 'present' for, if I can make sure it's calm and quiet for him before we head down the aisle (he disassociates from what's going on around him because of severe PTSD).

    I will be escorted, but I am not sure by who as I have three parental figures who are important to me.

    Undecided... my dad has passed away. If he were still around I would for sure love him to walk me down the aisle. I haven't decided whether to go alone or have my mom walk me down

    My dad will be walking me down the aisle. I like the tradition of it and feel he would feel left out if I skipped it anyway!

    Not sure. If I do, it will be my mom. The catch is that she thinks it's ridiculous Smiley xd

    Undetermined.
    I’m close with my father but have always been my own person.
    We’ll have to figure it out.

    I feel you on this one. I don't know my biological dad. and my grandpa that raised me (I called him dad) passed away. and my biological mom has passed too. I am having my uncle walk me down (he is my mom's brother. and who I spend holidays etc with). I think it depends on your relationship with someone.

    your mom may be completely honoured and want to do it. if you are close with your 2 brothers. I think it would be super sweet to have them walk you down. and they would probably be honoured by the responsibility.

    I'll have my dad walk me down the aisle. I really want the touching and emotional daddy/daughter moment.

    I'm undecided! My Dad unfortunately passed away last year. I am debating having my Mom do it but she is an emotional mess and I don't know if she can handle it. Then I have 2 older brothers, it would be weird asking 1 and not the other. So basically I am torn.
