Dad dead, mum wont walk me down aisle
My dad died 4 years ago. I am an only child so its just me and my mum.
My mum is currently refusing to walk me down the aisle as:
1) Its not traditional (she is very traditional old school catholic)
2) She wants the day to be about her, eg she wants to make her grand entrance so everyone can wow at her outfit. (I will post again about issues regarding HER day) If she walks down the aisle with me obvious everyone will be looking at me and not at her. One of her friend has even said to me to not 'make' my mum walk me down the aisle so she can have her limelight!
She wants an uncle who im not at all close to to walk me down the aisle , as 'thats how it should be'. I have told her this will not be happening and that I would rather have a guy friend walk me down the aisle. She was not happy about this either.
I really dont know what to do , the wedding isnt for another year but I cant see her backing down, the last time we discussed it she basically huffed, shouted at me then wouldnt talk to me for the rest of the day.
Has anyone else been in this situation??
