* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Captain Vorpatril's Alliance]]'', Ivan's father-in-law (who is from Jackson's Hole, which has ruthless capitalism as their planet's hat) says that he considers this trope to be valuing the daughter far too little. He thinks better of the tradition when Ivan explains that the behind the scenes negotiations of marriage contracts can go on for months, it's just considered bad form to bring up those details during the wedding.

Added DiffLines:

* [[Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman Dr. Quinn]] asks her mother to give her away, as her father has passed away. Her mother, being a stickler for tradition, refuses (presumably, this was unheard of in the 1800s, when the series is set). Fiance Sully asks his former father-in-law Loren to do it as means of making amends for he and Loren's daughter running off and eloping years ago, depriving him of the chance to do this. Loren agrees, but her mother comes around and does it after all.

[[TheHero Shotaro]] was originally going to give her away, but when the ceremony comes he sits in the pews next to his partner Philip, explaining that it's taken care of; we then see a specter of Sokichi escorting Akiko down the aisle.

In Western weddings, the bride's father walks her down the aisle to the altar where the vows are exchanged, a holdover from the days of ArrangedMarriage where the bride would be offered to the groom. Nowadays, it's a show of endearment towards the most important man in her life before the groom came into the picture, and Daddy is "giving away" his little girl. If her father is dead, unavailable, or [[DisappearedDad didn't fill that role in her life]], then her mother, [[BigBrotherInstinct brother]], [[CoolUncle uncle]], [[ParentalSubstitute close friend, or mentor figure]] are popular choices to stand in his place. It could also be her son if the bride is older.
