I think it is perfectly appropriate to have your step father give you away and give a speech.  I’m sure he will be pleased.

@anahappilyeverafter:  you can ask whomever to walk to down the aisle, or even walk yourself.


as far as speeches, I’d let anyone do a speech as well.

I would say have your step father walk you down the aisle, but then ask if he AND your mom could either do a speech together, or shorter speeches seperately.

I agree with the other bees.  Step dad is a great choice.  Your mom has married the guy, so she must think the world of him as well.

@anahappilyeverafter:  My daughter’s wedding – Her father passed away when she was 18 years old.  But my husband (her step-dad) has been in her life since she was 8 years old. So a very long time.

She asked my husband to walk her down the aisle and make a speach at the reception.  He is honoured, and I am just so happy because it took her a long time to appreciate all the things he has done for her all these years. 

My daughter and I have an amazing relationship, we speak at least once a day and I am planning her wedding for her and her Fiance. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You need to choose the person that you want.  It is your day.
