Who Should Give Me Away

My father passed away a year and a half ago. I was wondering who should give me away at my wedding. I have a younger brother would this be appropriate or a brother-in-law who has been like a brother to me.

Walk with both. Your brother on one side and the brother-in-law on the other side. I have seen this done.
When my dad passed away my brother gave me away. Your case is slightly different. You seem to be fond of both males. Have a blessed marriage.

Who is your heart telling you to have walk you down the aisle? Remember, that part is tradition and there's no single "right" way of doing it. If it's any consolation, I know many people who have "broken" all sorts of traditions at their weddings (I'll have to break several due to health reasons and principles when my time comes *shrug*).

I think it would depend on the age of your younger brother and if he would do it and if he didn't then ask the brother inlaw. You could also have them both walk you down too.

My fiancee's father was physically abusive and an alcoholic. Because of that she does not want him to give her away. She has chosen to walk down the aisle alone and is very content with that. There is nothing that says you have to have someone give you away. Its a personal choice.

I lost my dad when I was ten years old. I would say it would have to be someone you respect & look up to. It could I suppose be any man, family, or friend.

May God Bless You & Hopefully you've found an anser,

In the case of our wedding, my wife's father had died. Her brother gave her away. She only had one brother, so there was no debate as to which brother would give her away. It would probably be the responsibility of the oldest brother. Would "stick" with a direct member of the family. The brother would be my first choice and it was my wife's.

I have seen instances where the mother gives the bride away also. Something to think of.

BEST WISHES for you!

Giving you away is a very special and it would have to be someone who you felt could do it for your dad. My father passed away before I was married and I have no brothers.I have 2 neighbors who were like brothers.Anyways, I could not chose between one of them and so they both walked me down.On our way down they had a picture of my father up on the screen, and when the Pastor asked who gives this woman away he made referance to my father and that they were doing it for him. It turned out great.
