Popping the Question: Walking Down the Aisle

We’re back with another installment in Popping the Question, our series where we tackle questions unique to wedding-planning as a queer couple.

Today is all about strutting your stuff! We all know that “tradition” dictates how couples are supposed to walk down the aisle, but what happens to those of us who don’t fit into that traditional binary? If you’re already married, tell us: How did you decide who would walk down the aisle? Did you both walk down together? Or did you forgo that tradition entirely in favor of a different kind of grand entrance? If you’re planning—or just dreaming of—that perfect ceremony, how do you envision taking those all-important steps?

On a related note: what do dads have to do with any of this? Will pops be “giving you away”? Will you go it alone? Or will a member of your chosen family be walking you down the aisle?

    My wife and I danced our way down the isle! Our music was from Pirates of the Caribbean (we’re Disney freaks, among other things we’re freaks about) so it worked out! The way our venue was set up, we had a short distance, and it intertwined with our guests. Pretty awesome to see my wife to be (extrovert) rock her way up to our ceremony space while I (introvert) got to kiss and hug all our guests on the route! Our Honor Party of Awesomeness walked in to Hedwig’s Theme from Harry Potter (I am a Potterhead). One of the best aspects was that all of our music was played by an instrumental trio that included flute (my aunt), a cello, and a violin. We loved it!
