@Pumpkin_Bee:  You could put all of them in the program with their “official” titles. And ask your officiant to not “introduce” any of them during the ceremony.

@Pumpkin_Bee:  I’m not sure about your stepmum, but are you being ‘given away’ as well as being walked down the aisle by your dad?  If so, maybe your officiant could say something like this:

 

“It has long been tradition in many parts of the world for the father of the bride to give his daughter’s hand in marriage.  Today that honour falls to Mr ‘Pumpkin_Bee’s father’.  So, Mr ‘Pumpkin_Bee’s father’ are you happy for your daughter Pumpkin_Bee to be married to ‘Pumpkin_Bee’s Fi’?  (Father answers ‘I am’)  Thank you, so to signify your best wishes for their future happiness would you please take Pumpkin_Bee’s ring hand and place it in ‘Pumpkin_Bee’s Fi’s’ hand and please do feel free to kiss your daughter at this point.”
