    I only wish that more brides had the confidence to give a speech at the meal after, rather than just the father, bridegroom and best man.

      Agreed.

      If my eldest does end up marrying the chap she's currently with, I have little doubt she'll step in instead of him - nice enough bloke, but soooo wet.

      A very good point - it's as if the bride is expected to sit there and not say anything.

      If the bride wants to have her dad walk her down the aisle then hashtags and all those screeching about it being this that and the other can swivel.

      Is it though? How many weddings do you think go on in the first world where women are told they are NOT allowed to do a speech? I got married a few years ago and I have been to several weddings before and after, not one of those weddings have had speeches done in the traditional manner. Not one of them did the bride speak, and every single one of them could think of nothing worse than doing it. Putting pressure on someone to speak in public isn't acceptable, so maybe we should be looking at forcing the men to speak as just as outdated no?

      Probably accurate in the case of my future MiL, but that's another matter.

      I have two younger brothers and no sisters, and we're all closer to our Mum than our Dad anyway - it feels like a nice opportunity to get her more closely involved in the day, however unusual it might be.
      If it’s what you want, and it feels right, go for it. Lovely idea btw.
      What?

      I'd be pretty gutted if my daughter didn't ask me to give her away. Walking her down the aisle would be a very high point in my life.

      Yes. Unless you've molested her

      Wrong! My friend.

      The reMARKLEable poll.


      Who should not attend the Royal Wedding?

      1. Thomas Markle who gave her away once already. Did he take her back?




      2. Thomas Markle the Jeweler




      3. Thomas J. Markle of Wilmington, Illinois

      Dwell on your strengths not your weaknesses.

      Can't be arsed personally. Daughter can walk herself, not that she'd have a church wedding in the first place.

      The tradition of the Father giving the Daughter away is linked to that other tradition.

      The Bride's Father paying for the wedding.
