Wedding Processional: Can My Brother Walk Me Down The Aisle Too?

Q: My mother passed away four months ago. My father will walk me down the aisle. Even if it is hard for him without my mom, is it tacky to have my older brother represent my mom and walk with my dad and me?

A: Not at all! It sounds like you're having a Jewish wedding, in which the bride is escorted down the aisle by both parents (and so is the groom). But if you're not and you just want your dad to have some support walking you down the aisle, that's absolutely appropriate, too. The idea is to have your family's support as you walk into your marriage, and that's exactly what you will be doing.
