Who did you walk down the aisle with at your wedding?

Don't want my dad to "give me away" - bleurgh!!
But not sure I fancy the walk on my own?
Not that we are having an aisle as such, it will be into the centre of a circle as we've chosen to have all of our guests form a circle around us (small wedding, just family and a few close friends).
We have a gorgeous little girl together who will be flower girl and one much older bridesmaid.
I'd love to hear suggestions/about what others have done.

I walked by myself down the aisle. Both my parents are dead. There no way I would have let my dad as he was a violent controlling alcoholic and the same for my brother who saw it as ‘his right’ and apparently it was extremely disrespectful of me (controlling twat). I then had various male relatives offer to walk me down the aisle (as I was meant to be terribly sad that I was walking alone).
I told them that I was an adult in my 30’s and I was quite able to put one foot in front the other.

My dad passed away a couple of years before I got married. I would have loved him to walk me down the aisle, not so much to 'give me away' but just to be with me at a huge moment in my life. My brother did it instead, I didn't fancy it on my own. We took out the 'who gives this woman?' line. Whatever you feel most comfortable with on your big day is what is right for you!
