    Our youngest daughter is getting married on the 6th of June, (tomorrow).
    I will be walking her down the aisle, as well as officiating the ceremony.
    I am puzzled by only one thing; How do I handle the question, "Who gives this woman to be married"?
    I guess I could leave it off, but she wants it in, somehow.
    And before anyone asks, yes, I was an ordained minister before the internet.
    Just never had this come up before!

    I would say something like

    "The common question is asked 'who gives this woman to be married?'. Well, the answer is her mother and I proudly do."

    Hmm,
    I have to say, that could work. A little tweeking, but that is usable.
    Thanks!

    How about ..... turning your head, cover your mouth and in a squeeky litle voice........ "I do"!

    Although, the above sounds a little more civil.

    Congrats are in order!

    I don't suppose there'll be a fly-by of DC-3s? :lol:

    And that's a good idea, Thor :lol:

    I think you should dress up since it's D-Day and you can never go wrong with guns when around a future son-in-law.

    Seriously, congratulations!

    Poor little guy is already afraid of me! He flinches if I make a sudden movement.

    Congratulation to your family. My wife's anniversary falls on the same day. I always remember something important happened on that day. I start out at D Day, and recall it could not have been in 1944, then I go to CW Mccall's Convoy. (It was the dark of the moon on the 6th of June in a Kenworth hauling logs, a Cab over Pete with a reefer on and Jimmy hauling hogs.) That came out in 76, so I know that ain't it, then I look at the wife and smile and know it was 85. So I hope the best for yours that it is a blessed and wonderful rest of her life.

    Paul, congradulations to you and yours. Hopefully this is something to lift your spirits and mind away from the evil that was done.

    All the best to you and yours!

    As far as the other, why not just turn it into a statement instead of a question?

    Thank you all!
    The day came off with no problems. We just skipped over that part.
    A bit of fun happened when I got to the "Love, Honor and Obey" part; (my daughter insisted that this remain in the ceremony), I departed from the normal ceremony to let the groom know that the "Obey" part would only apply to him. He nodded, and turned to the congregation and said, "It always has!"
    Couldn't have better timing!
