Can a bride walk down the aisle alone?
Many brides feel their walk down the aisle alone is the most romantic option. If this is how she choosing to respond to that challenge then you should be respectful and be in 100% support. Remember that it’s her decision.
I have a wonderful relationship with my father and I am walking on my own. Not only do I feel weird about be given away to someone like property but I feel as if I want that moment to be just between me and my FiancĂ©. Like as soon as we lock eyes, he will know I am coming down that aisle for him and only him. -We get that same feeling when we see each other at the end of the day, across the street, at a party etc and it still gives me that tingling knot of excitement and those ‘thoughts’ after 8 years. I can only imagine the feels when I’m walking down the aisle towards him. – So ya I definitely don’t want my Dad holding my hand during that eye lock/sexy thought time…
I will definitely be walking down the aisle alone. I have been very independent my whole life so I figure it is only appropriate to go into this marriage the same way I have approached every major milestone in my life, standing on my own two feet and doing it for myself.
I’m also very uncomfortable with the historical roots of this tradition, where handing over the bride is essentially a transfer of property, like I’m a used car (low mileage! one previous owner!), rather than an adult.
I don’t judge anyone who chooses to be escorted down the aisle, whether it’s their mother, father, sibling, BFF, or some random person they found in the parking lot.
