Chuppah Without a Mother
My mother passed away 1 year ago. The wedding will be incredibly difficult without her and in addition, when it comes to jewish weddings a mother plays an important role. I will get married in an orthodox ceremony (United Synagogue, London) and would like to be escorted just by my dad to the chuppah. I can’t imagine having somebody else by my side. I would like to know if there are any rules or laws that would allow or forbid that? I would be fine walking alone if necessary but not with an aunt or a friend by my site. I appreciate all your help!
