So my step-dad is walking me down the aisle after my mom asked him too because she thought it would be nice if he did. My dad passed away last year, so was okay with walking down by myself. So I have gone along with it. We get along fine. Most days I think he could care less about me, but he ADORES my daughter. So this is my question. Will it be wrong not to do a father daughter dance at the reception? I just feel that would be so fake and stupid doing that with him. There will be no other parent dances, so I think I can skip it? What are your thoughts on this?

Do what you want. If there are no other parent dances, it will not look as if you are treating him any differently from any of the other parents.

Yeah I say do what you want..
I personally want to walk down the aisle with my stepdad instead of my dad, and do a father-daughter dance with my stepdad and not my dad…but that’s cause my stepdad IS my dad to since he raised me.
If you don’t feel comfortable, then don’t do it..especially if you feel he could care less about you.

It’s your wedding – do what you want to do! I’m not close with my dad so I’m having my mom and dad walk me down the isle ( Haven’t told my dad that yet.. don’t know how to bring that up ) I can hardly hug my dad, let along dance with him for four minutes, so we are only having our first dance, none with our parents. It’s only what you want 🙂

I say do what you feel. I am having my mother walk me down the aisle not my step dad or my birth father. I am also not doing any parent dances.
