Q: “I am getting married soon and my father has had a sex change operation. I really want him/her to walk me down the aisle, but I don’t know how to proceed. Help!”
A: Please remember the custom of walking the bride down the aisle and giving her away stems from ancient times when women were considered property. Nowadays, it is not unusual for a bride to walk herself down the aisle. This option would cause the least amount of attention, since the focus should be on you and your groom and not on your biological father who has had a sex change.
Q:” I was wondering if I should cool to the ideal of having my fiance’s two ex-girlfriend stand in our wedding. I feel a bit uncomfortable with this ideal.”
A: Of course you would! (we want to know who would suggest such a thing?) They need not stand in your wedding, but as friends may be welcome guest.
Q: “I am having a difficult time coming up with a wedding theme and am really confused about what is the purpose of a theme? Please give me some good ideas that I may use.”
A: You don’t have to have a theme! Sometimes people take advantage of their ethnicity and use that as a theme– such as Scotch, Hawaiian, or Italian motives. Sometimes people are inspired by the season and capitalize on Valentine’s Day or the Fourth of July. On other occasions, one may be inspired by the location such as a boating, golfing or ski area. I hope this helps.
