megtee:  Since you most want your mom to do it, go with that and just let your dad an stepdad know what you are planning to do. I think it would be odd to have your stepdad walk you down then have your father cut in and give you away. Also since your mom has been there for you throughout, it makes the most sense and prevents you from having to choose between the men. You could also walk alone if you wanted to.

megtee: Stick with your mum. It makes the most sense and sounds like it will make you happiest on the day

I attended a wedding where the mother of the bride walked her daughter in – the whole way, and the father and step-father, with whom she lived most of her life, split shaing the walk. It was touching.

Walk alone! Or with ur mom. Your dad should understand and if he doesn’t, that’s his problem.

I’m in a similar situation with mum/dad/stepdad. I know my dad will be disappointed with not walking me but my mum has been there more than anyone so I want her to be the one to do it. Don’t let your dad guilt you when it’s such a lovely honour for you to ask your mum.

I think walking with your mom is great. Maybe you could just do dances with your dad and stepdad.

Mom and step-dad walk you as far as their seats, dad gives you away. Or 2 dads walk you, mom gives you away. 

Definitely involve all 3. 

Lovely!

How well do they all get along? Could you have your mum walk down the aisle, and have your dad and step-dad meet you at the end to all give you away together?

That way you would get what you want (ie your mum walking you down the aisle) and your dad and step-dad will have equal parts to play in giving you away.

My dad is walking me down the aisle and my mom will meet us at the end and they are both giving me away. Go with whatever feels right to you, dont worry about pleasing everyone. Your mom played a huge role in your life, that should be acknowledged.

My cousin did something similar as a pp mentioned: Dad walked her halfway down the aisle where they met step-day, he walked her (with Dad) rest of the way. Mom wasn’t included in giving her away, but in your case you could have both escort you to meet Mom and she can give you away.
