@bsperry3:  It can be hard trying to make other people happy. Would you consider your bio Dad walking you part way down the aisle, then handing you off to your stepdad? That way they both can be involved.

@bsperry3:  I’m in a very similiar situation.  I already asked my dad to walk me down the aisle, but haven’t figured out how to tell my bio dad that.  I want to ask him without my stepmom because she would be the one to throw a fit and say they won’t go to the wedding.  I found a really nice poem I liked “The Act of Marriage by wilfred A peterson and have asked my bio dad if he would be willing to read it during the ceremony.  I am HORRIBLE at confrontation and hate hurting anyone’s feelings, so i keep putting of actually telling him my dad is walking down the aisle.  My only advice (seeing as I’m not really helpful) is go with your gut.  I know i lot of people recommended having one walk me halfway down the aisle and the other the rest of the way, or them walking me down together…but I knew I would never want to take that moment away from my dad.  Good luck…just remember its your wedding and you can’t make everyone happy, so do what you want in this situation/
