I was wondering if any of you past brides out there have walked down the aisle alone due to the death of a dad or parent, and if you regretted it after. I lost my dad about 6 years ago. My grandfather is supposed to walk me down the aisle this coming July, which I was very excited about, but his health has declined significantly over the last couple of months and there isn't any hope for recovery, it's just kind of a waiting game at this point. He is in a lot of pain and discomfort so as much as I want him to be the one to walk me down the aisle, I would at least be thankful that he is no longer in pain. Unfortunately, I feel like the only person who I feel comfortable walking down with in place of my dad is my grandfather, and I just can't imagine walking down with anyone else. God willing, my grandfather will somehow make it to the wedding, but I feel like I need to prepare myself emotionally if I need to walk down alone. My biggest fear is that I will get sad walking alone, but at the same time I don't want to walk down with someone who I feel shouldn't be in my dad's spot. Anyone been in a similar situation?
