Back story: My parents haven't decided if they will attend the wedding or not. Last I heard, my dad mentioned to my sister that if I specifically asked him, he would be in the wedding party. Long story short, they told me they would have to think about attending when I announced my engagement back in January (FI talked to my dad about two months prior to popping the question so they knew, it was courtesy to call them since they didn't attend the proposal). If they have since decided to attend, they have not told me. I guess I have to go and ask them again....which I think is interesting since it was them who were undecided, not me. Anyhow....
True Question: If my dad does not attend, or attends but does not wish to escort me down the aisle, would it be okay if my FI stood at the alter with his BM in the beginning, my BM and his GM walk together down the aisle, doors close, pause, doors open, my MoH is behind me (train police)....FI sees me, pause, FI walks back up the aisle to me and we walk down to the alter together?
I'm not against walking solo, more than strong enough emotionally to not need anyone to escort me or give me away (which my maternal grandpa was planning to give me away should weather allow him to attend).
Just trying to think of Plan B, C, and D haha.
Plan A: Dad decides to attend and escort me...possibly even give me away
Plan B: Grandpa escorts me and gives me away
Plan C: I walk solo, no giving away mentioned in the ceremony
FI walks up the aisle and we both walk together, no giving away mentioned in the ceremony
So in the end ladies (and possibly gentlemen), are all plans kosher and proper? I am not looking for people to pick one plan vs. the other but more to make sure that Plan D is something that can be done if it came to that.
