I know it’s been posted about, I promise I did a search. But sometimes the other posts don’t help with your exact situation, ya know?
Anyway, I’m debating how to handle the walk down the aisle with both dad and stepdad. I want them both, tho in retrospect I almost wish I hadn’t ever said I was going to have both since I honestly don’t think my stepdad would have been hurt, but I definitely can’t back out on it now. But still. I do want both. But I can’t figure the logistics of it. If I have both of them walk me at the same time, how can I hold flowers and their arms? If I have stepdad walk me halfway, then dad take over, how does that look? People have mentioned seeing videos of that, but I can’t find any. Anybody have any links to some? Also, the first half of our aisle will be not too visible, walking under a (high) balcony, past a soundbooth. In my mind, that part barely even counts. The aisle runner doesn’t even extend that far back. So would it be bad to have my stepdad just walk me down the part that doesn’t even seem like the real aisle? I’m so confused! And barely over a week to figure it out! Help?

You could hold your flowers normally and then they could each hold an elbow or upper arm kind of thing…I’m not really sure how it works, but wouldn’t it work the same as people who have both parents do it? Have you seen any pictures of that?

I had both my mom and dad walk me down , arms linked and it looked fine. To be honest it was nice to have the support. Both of us loped arms and I held my bouquet in front. You could try out your options at the rehersal and see what you like most. I think it’s very thoughtful of you to remember both , I’m sure you’ll figure it out. Good luck!

Well if they both walk you all the way down you can have them hook their arms under your arms while you hold your flowers. But I do like the idea of your stepdad just walking you half way down and then your dad all the way. This way you are still respecting your stepdad but you are showing the bond you have with your dad by having him walk you all the way down. I would say have stepdad walk you half way give him a hug and then walk the rest of the way down with dad. Good luck. Sorry I dont have any links.

Ah good one D.Marie… that sounds really clever, if the step-dad doesn’t mind!
