Some alternate words to the 'giving away' bit of a wedding ceremony

When we got married, I didn't want to be given away. But I still wanted my dad to walk me down the aisle, and I wanted some way to reflect the creation of our new families. I'm saving them here in case anyone else ever needs them.

I found this on


Priest: Sharon and Ashley, your daughter, Alex, has chosen to share her life with Tom. Will you receive him as your son, and at all times give him your support and understanding?
Sharon and Ashley: We will.

Priest: Eunice and Norman, your son, Tom, has chosen to share his life with Alex. Will you receive her as your daughter, and at all times give her your support and understanding?
Eunice and Norman: We will.
