Long story –> Short.
Father & Mother are divorced.
I am on terrible terms with her.
He and I are strangers.
Still debating if I want them to attend. As of now, it’s a yes.
My twin younger sisters are my maids of honor.
Should I have my father still escort me?
Before thinking about the logistics, I wanted my sisters to escort me since they’re the only family I have a bond with, but would that be odd? Odd because my father’s listed on the program and he’s in the sidelines?
And for the order of the line I suppose the groom, bestman and groomsman comes out first and us lather?

Look past anything being weird and go with what your heart says.
I think it’s neat you want your sisters to walk you.

Personally – I’d just escort myself in if I were in your situation. If your dad is a stranger to you – I definitely wouldn’t give him the honor of doing so.
I’ve never seen the Groom and GM process down the aisle. Every wedding I’ve been to, they just start at the front and only the females (and mothers, flowergirls, ring bearers, etc) process.

I agree with going with your heart. My dad was present, but I walked down the aisle alone. It was the best decision for me! I had my mom and siblings “give me away”.
And to answer your other question: usually the Groom and, minister, and Best Men come out first (from the front) . Then the Groomsmen, unless you want them to escorte the ladies down the aisle.

In my opinion, if you don’t consider your father your dad, then I wouldn’t have him walk you down the aisle. Having your sisters walk you down would not be odd at all. Do what is right for you.

Thank you for comments.
Now to move on with the other details…

do whatever feels most comfortable for YOU. It depends on the set up usually is that the groomsmen and groom just slip in from the side to stand in front – except in our case since there was one 1 way to get to the front. Why not walk by yourself? with the twins infront of you?
