- Wedding: April 2011
I am planning my wedding and am having trouble figuring out how to include my step dad.
My own dad will most likely walk me down the isle. My parents divorced when I was 16 and alothough I haven’t always seen eye to eye with my dad and I did in fact live with my mum, he’s still my dad and he means well and has been a consistant part of my life.
My step dad came on the scene when I was about 18 and has been a rock for my mum, she has never been so happy. We’ve grown to have a really cool relationship and he has heaps in common with my fiance.
My stepdad doesn’t have any children of his own and I am my mums only child, so really this is his only opportunity to play a parently role at a wedding.
I don’t want to lessen my dads involvement in the wedding because he is important and I don’t want to insult him or make him feel bad, but I do want to acknowledge the part my step dad plays in my life and make it special for him as well.
I’ve read lots of posts saying to have the father daughter dance spilt between dad and step dad or have them both walk me down the isle, but they aren’t exactly “best mates” so I’m not sure I’m comfortable with this.
