Wedding Ceremony Q&As

Answers to who walks when, who stands where, and other ways to make sure your ceremony is perfect.

Q: Since my parents’ divorce many years ago, I’ve only seen my dad once every other year. And even though he would like to walk me down the aisle, and I’m comfortable with this, I do feel that my mom should be my escort, since she is the one who raised me. What should I do? 

A: Why not have both your mom and dad walk you down the aisle? That way, you maintain the tradition of a father escorting his daughter, but also honor your mother and acknowledge her role in your life as parent, friend and supporter. I doubt that either parent will object to this arrangement; in fact, I’m sure they’ll both understand your reasons for doing so.
