Take my poll

I feel like my head is going to explode from too much information, too many details, too much too much too much!

One thing I have been way over thinking today is my actual walk down the aisle. So, a question for you if you stumble upon this blog… and please answer honestly!

If you went to a wedding where the bride walked down the aisle alone, unescorted by a family member, would you:

A. Assume her father was either deceased or unsupportive of the marriage.
B. Assume the bride has an independent streak and is old enough to walk herself down a damn aisle
C. Assume proper etiquette given that it is the bride’s second marriage.
D. Think it’s unusual and a little weird, but not terribly offensive.
E. Not think anything really at all.

Those of you who know me will know that B and C apply to me, but I am worried that some guests, those in particular from the groom’s side, will tend toward “A”. My dad has been extremely, extraordinarily supportive of my relationship with Gary, and I would hate for anyone to think otherwise and it’s really starting to make my head spin. As an aside, my dad doesn’t like being the center of attention so he is happier in his seat in the front row watching and taking pictures.

Being to so many different styles of weddings, I honestly wouldn't think anything of it. But my aunt, who finds etiquette to be #2 to God would think it was C.

Having said all of that, who cares honey? I would venture to say that most, if not all, of the people attending your wedding know you as either a family member or friend. Any of those people would know enough of your history to not buy into the reasonings as to why you're walking alone. Someone off the street, they might wonder, but how many unknown guests are you really inviting? Besides, if your great aunt from your uncles second marriage wants to assume...well you know what assuming does so let her be the one who looks stupid for judging and assuming at such a blessed event.

May you have an incredible day void of all things dramatic, and experience bliss as you've never experienced it.
