- Wedding: December 2010
I guess I don’t really have a question to ask or advice to seek really, but I just thought I would share a my situation with you all and something that has been on my mind lately. Ever since I have been engaged, people have been asking me “so who is going to walk you down the aisle?” Before I felt like I was on the spot and didn’t really know what to say because here is the deal….
My dad has been in and out of my life in the sense that he has been in prison and he has moved a lot to find work and such, but he has always been in touch and he loves me very much and I love him, but most of my raising has been done by my step-dad who my mom has been with since I was 2. In the first half of my life I always held my dad on a pedestal and didn’t have a great relationship with my step-dad. However, as I get older I realize more and more that my dad, even though we love each other very much, isn’t as great as I used to think and my step-dad isn’t as bad as I used to think and we have been getting along great in my older teen years and now (i’m 21).
I think what I am leaning toward is having them both walk me down the aisle and I am pretty sure they are both ok with that. I just didn’t want to hurt either one of them and I know they would both want to be a part of my wedding. Are there any other brides out there with similar situations? What have ya’ll done? Or what would you suggest would be the best way to do it? Even though it is untraditional, is it a good idea to have them both walk me down the aisle or does that make for a crowded aisle?
