Second Weddings

My son, AND future FIL?

Hello!! I am fresh meat to this board, we got engaged on July 4th, and are planning a December 8th wedding! My question is, I have a 5 year old son who I was originally planning on escorting me down the aisle. However, FI has been persistent in asking if his father can give me away. He says it would mean a lot to his dad, and I know it would, but I love the idea of my son walking with me. Would it look awkward if they BOTH walked me down the aisle? My last wedding I walked by myself and my mom just met me at the end of the aisle and gave me away. I love my FFIL so it's not that I would mind him walking with me, but at the same time I want my son with me as well. Thoughts?

Re: My son, AND future FIL?

  • Without knowing your relationship with your FFIL, it would be awkward for him to walk you down the aisle. Have your son do it!
  • If you want to have both your son and your FFIL walk with you I don't see a problem with it.  It wouldn't look awkward at all - other than your FFIL should not answer for "who gives this woman" since he is your FI's father. 

    OAN: I don't believe in the tradition of daughters being given to someone...
