Ceremony and Vow Ideas

Bride walking down the aisle alone?

I am 34.. (will be 35 when we get married).  This is my 2nd marriage & my future husband's 1st.  My mom & dad walked me down the aisle the 1st time when i was a good bit younger.  Is it weird for me to walk down the aisle by myself this time? 
Any thoughts are appreciated : )

Thanks!

  • Not weird if that's what you want to do.

    Not at all!

    My dad passed away when I was a teenager, and I outright refuse to have anyone else escort me.

    FI is Jewish (I'm not), so his parents will both escort him down the aisle in his tradition, followed by our bridal party, then I'll go down alone. My mom will either be seated beforehand or escorted by family before my FI & his parents, or will be seated before the processional.
  • This would be fine!  You might consider walking down the aisle with your FI as an escort.  This is often done, especially with brides who's father's aren't around to escort them.  You might just need a steadying arm if you get nervous and stumble in high heels!

  • Walking down the aisle alone is totally fine; in fact, this is exactly what I did. I was uncomfortable with the tradition of fathers walking their daughters down the aisle/giving them away, so I decided not to do it at my own wedding.

  • Thanks Ladies!  Maybe it would be a good idea for me to walk half way down the aisle, and then have my FI meet me in the middle... That could be cute :)   Has anyone ever seen this done at a wedding?  I never have.

    Seems unnecessary and possibly a little awkward and time consuming. If you want to walk alone and have all eyes on you for a time, do that; if you want to enter with your FI to enter into marriage, do that.
    This. I would either walk with him the whole way or not at all. Either is totally fine.

  • I'm another who walked in alone. Do what you like here.

  • I've seen the couple meet half way and it wasn't awkward. Groom walked from front to about halfway down the aisle. Bride then entered and met the groom in the middle.

    Do what makes you feel comfortable.

    This is one aspect of the wedding that is entirely your choice.

    Fine to walk alone. Or have your Mom/ brother/ grandparent/ uncle/ whoever escort you. Or have FI escort you.

    When my friend got married, her FI waited for her at the start of the aisle where the guests were seated, then she came out by herself from around the corner, and then they walked up the aisle together.
