While planning your wedding, you will be confronted with countless, often stressful decisions.
For the main course, will you serve meat or fish? Do you want lilies or roses in your floral centerpieces? And will your guests toast with champagne or wine?
Arguably the most deeply personal decision of all, though, is who you choose to walk you down the aisle.
Traditionally, brides are accompanied down the aisle by their fathers. But, while this is an ideal option for some people, not everyone is on good terms with their dad.
Perhaps you are estranged from your father, he cannot make it to the wedding, or you simply just are not that close with him anymore.
Regardless of the situation, you don’t have to feel like you are left without any other options. Instead, there are plenty of alternative people who you can ask to take your hand and lead you to the altar.
