I’ve never been through this, but my best friend had to.  I think you’re idea is great

Tho, IMO, would it be bad for your stepfather to hand you off to your father?  Would he think anything odd of it? 

My best friend had her father on one side and her stepfather on the other – and they both walked her down the isle.  Hope that helps!

I like your idea, I have heard of people doing similar things.  I am having both my mother and father walk me down.  You could have your dad and step-dad walk you down together, but I don’t know if that gives they impression that they are a couple?

how about having your step-father walk you halfway up the aisle and your dad does the rest of the way?

Also, maybe a good way to include your stepdad is to ask him to do a reading during the ceremony?

I’m doing something similar with my divorced parents. My mom raised me so it seems only fair that she gets to walk me part way. She’ll walk me to the start of the runner and then my dad will walk em the rest of the way to the alter 🙂

I’m in the same situation but i’m not close to my Dad at all and although there’s my stepdad it’s my Mum that’s bought me up so she’s giving me away.
