  • Nope. My best friend since grade school did. He was the only guy worthy of giving me away....he was there when i laughed & there when i cried for my whole life. Can't say that about my dad.....

  • My dad walked me down the aisle, and it's a good thing too. My knees were shaking so much he helped hold me up (c: Maybe you could renew your vows and have your dad walk you down the aisle for that.

  • yes. we lived in Nevada so quicky weddings are obviously a specialty, but my Dad was able to walk me down the "quicky" isle. We both had tears in our eyes.

  • I would have loved my dad to be there to walk me down the aisle. He died a week before I turned 16. I had my oldest brother do it.

  • I got married in vegas. It was nothing special or spectacular. Saved a lot of money! lol It was just me, my husband, his brother and cousin who just happened to be in vegas at the time. We are talking about doing a traditional wedding for our 7 year anniversary so all our family can be there, and I'll be a lot thinner! LOL

  • I never met my Dad. Nor do I know who he is. When I found my Bio mom when I was 19 & Pregnant. I found her dying from breast cancer in her hospital room. She never shared if I had a Dad or Family! I only had a short time with her. So I doubt I'll ever find him. I wish you the best! Both of our DD's are Married. But neither time did my DH/their dad walk them down the aisle either. Times are changing.

  • nope....My bio dad was never in my life from the age of 2 til 15 never even new who he was until then at 28 he is still not in i that much. But when it came to my wedding he asked who was going to walk me down the aisle (he wanted to) but I chose my moms husband (who adopted me at 3 or 5 years of age) He was the one that was always there for me, the one who I called dad, the only dad I ever new so it was only write to have my adopted dad do it. So my bio dad didn't come to my wedding. I donot regreat the decision I made either.
