Who Should Walk you Down the Aisle?

Of course by old traditions we know that the father of the bride will walk her down the aisle, but so many traditions have change far. It is a natural tradition for a father to provide and take care of his family, but yet there are so many that are not. When making the selection of who will hold this position, it should not be based on what is politically correct, but what is correct in your heart.

If you have a father who has not provided, or made contact with you until your adulthood or the year of your wedding, and neither one of you know anything about the other, but yet you have a step-father who has been your sole provider, then this honor should go to your step-father. If both fathers have equally shared the responsibility of your upbringing then let them both walk you down the aisle, or one can walk you half, and the other walk you to the altar.

There are cases that there is no father present, and then this honor should go to the single mother who has been your sole provider. In Jewish tradition both parents walk the bride down the aisle, which is now becoming a popular tradition across the board. The only rule about this is do what’s in your heart, I have experienced the bride being escorted by her brother, uncle, grandfather, mother, or her son and the list can go on and on.
