It’s my wedding, but I need her to be okay with it


CHER ABBY: My father passed away 25 years ago when I was barely a teenager. My boyfriend proposed in March, and we are planning our nuptials next fall.

As a girl, I dreamed that my father would accompany me down the aisle. Now I would like my uncle to step in and fill this role.

He has a daughter who is older than me. She has been married for many years. Out of respect, I’d like to ask her if she’s okay with me asking her dad. I’m sure she won’t mind, but I think asking her is the right thing to do.

I don’t know how to go about it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
