Hello everyone! I just got engaged and my dad just passed away this May. I was talking to my step-mom and she said that maybe i should have my mom give me away at my wedding when i was thinking of asking my Uncle G/my dad's bestfriend, when i told her about that she thought it was a good idea. Yesterday I had asked my step-mom if she talked to my uncle before i got the chance to would she ask him for me. I guess when she talked to him he said i should ask my mom first. Is it some sort of custom to have your mother give you away if your father has passd? JW. Truthfully i'm not close to my mom and i would rather have my uncle do it because he is my dad's brother & they were the best of friends. what do u guys think?
