    How close are you to your step-father? Are you doing this because you feel like you have to, or do you feel like they are both your fathers? 

    I would choose one person to walk you down the aisle and give the others a different special job like a reading, blessing or toast.

    I think hearing about your relationships with both of your dads would help us give advice. Without knowing this, I kind of like the idea of walking down with your dad and having your step-dad and mom join you at the end- if you could find another way to include your step-mom. Could she do a reading at the wedding/ lead a prayer (if you are religious)- something that would be important to her and you? I think it can show that they are all important to you in different ways 🙂

    What if you don’t have your step dad come up to give you away, just your mom… Then during the reception have a step-dad/step-daughter dance.  that way your step mom doesn’t get her feelings hurt and your step dad gets a special moment…

    I’m in a similar situation, except we all like my step-mom, but she hasn’t been in my life as long as my step-dad (although him and my mom have ‘only” been together since I was like 14, I’ve known him since I was 5… my dad starting dating my step mom when I was 17/18) so we aren’t as close… So to avoid any hurt feelings I am having my Dad walk me down the isle, my mom come up to help him “give me away” and then having a father/daughter dance at the reception followed by a step-father/daughter dance.  🙂
