The procession of the bride is one of the most important parts of the ceremony. Traditionally the father of the bride locks arms with his daughter and escorts her down the aisle. Tradition steps to the side in the modern world of wedding planning and allows for some creativity. Who should walk you down the aisle?
Procession of the Bride with the Groom
The journey into marriage is not one taken alone. Nothing is more symbolic of that journey with your partner than walking down the aisle with your true love at your side. The groom is rarely involved in the procession of the bride due to some old superstitions about not seeing the bride before the ceremony. However, including the groom in the procession of the bride is completely acceptable, and a rare occurrence that is sure to gain some attention.
Procession of the Bride with Both Parents
Believe it or not, it is very common to see the role of the father substituted in the procession of the bride with one other individual. However, the parents of the bride are creating a new trend by escorting the bride down the aisle together. This provides a display of their equal love and emotional support. The catchy trend of having both parents involved in the procession of the bride could be a new norm that exemplifies modern roles in parenting.
Solo Procession of the Bride
While most might imagine this magical moment arm in arm with their father, there are many reasons that empower the solo procession of the bride. All the reasons you have to support this decision are completely acceptable. There are no rules beyond tradition that govern the procession of the bride. Choosing to walk it alone is a completely acceptable and personal decision.
