Who will walk me down the aisle?

Unfortunately my dad passed away two years ago and i'm getting married! I don't know yet who is going to walk me down the aisle because i don not have any brother.
Should i walk alone in sign of respect to my father, should i be escort by one of my fathers brother with whom i do not have a great relationship or should i choose my cousin (mother side) with whom i've got a great relationship? 

Please help me

    I would caution you about walking alone.  How high are your heels?  If you have an escort, then you have an arm to catch you if you make a misstep.  Otherwise, you could fall flat on your face on your walk down the aisle!  I have seen it happen.
    I chose my uncle to escort me, since my father had dies.  My sister decided to walk with her groom.  You can choose anybody, including your mother.

    Is your mother in your life? If you have a good relationship, why not her? It doesn't have to be a man.

    And if you want to walk alone, that is fine too. Bridesmaids walk alone all the time and don't fall on their faces (usually, I'm sure it's happened).
