So... I've been planning on walking down the aisle alone. I haven't mentioned this to my dad. I know, I should. I'll get around to it.
The thing is, I don't have a good reason, other than that's what I always pictured. I don't think my dad should "give me away" because I don't agree with the tradition. I've lived on my own for 10 years. Plus, my mom raised me just as much, if not more than my dad.
I would consider having them both walk me, but they're divorced and it would lead to awkward expressions and I know my mom would rather be as far away from my dad as possible. So I'm going alone.
Question: Will people assume I have a terrible relationship with my dad? Because I don't. He's not the world's greatest dad EVAR, but we talk at least twice a month. He's supportive. He's not super expressive of his emotions, but whatever. Is this only something people do when they don't want to recognize their father or want to publically express how crappy he is?
