How do YOU walk down the aisle?
One of my first questions to you will probably be 'who's going to walk you down the aisle?' This is not a trick question. For many people they want their father to walk them down the aisle. However, you may be like me, and your father may not have been 100% around when you were growing up. So I chose my mum to walk me down the aisle.

Also, do you have to walk down the aisle?
No, you don't! Some couples choose to mingle with their guests before the ceremony, then do a quick 'haere mai' and everyone gathers to witness the ceremony.
I have also had a couple who wanted to each walk in with their parents. So they walked down the hill together, as two sets of three. Went around their guests (no aisle) got a quick kiss from their parents when they got closer to me and then joined me together, each presenting themselves to get married.
For me, I also didn't have the question 'who takes this woman to be married?'. My opinion was I'm not someone's property, my husband and I had already bought a house, we came to that wedding as equals. So my beautiful mother, tears and all, walked me down the aisle and I'm so pleased she did.
A a wedding is about YOU both as a couple. Do it your way, and remember there are so many options, the limit is only your imagination
