My parents divorced when i was very young and my mom married my stepdad when i was 9. My dad and i have lived in different states since and have only seen eachother maybe once a year for the last few years…anyways we were never close growing up. He recently had a stroke and i had a baby, and both experiences brought us back together. Well ever since i was little i had always thought my stepdad would walk me down the aisle, but now i want them both to.
Is that weird to have both of them walk me down the aisle? and how do i tell them? I dont want to hurt anyones feelings, but this is what i want. I have 2 dad and i want to share this with them both….Any advice?

It is totally up to you. Lot’s of bride are in your situation and have both of them walk them. Some brides have one walk them the first half of the way and then the other one walk them the rest of the way. If you are going to have “Who gives this bride…” in your vows, both of them can say they do.

I am exactly in the same situation! I am having both my stepdad and dad walk me down. Either people like it or they don’t.
Most people who find out that both are walking me down get teary eyed because they think its so sweet.
Go for it! Do what makes you happy and those that love you happy!

I, too, am in a very similar situation, except that my father has pretty much always had a presence in my life.
I’m having both of them walk me down the aisle.
Of course, I’ve been thinking then that with a dad on each arm, I can’t really carry a bouquet.
What are you all doing about flowers? Maybe a pommander?

Don’t worry about the bouquet, hold it anyway and link them both in! 🙂

That’s a difficult situation. My mom remarried when I was 5, but my dad stayed close by. I always was closer with my dad than I was with my stepdad, although my stepdad was always there for financial support when my dad wasn’t. I would like to walk down the aisle with my dad, but I don’t want to act like I don’t appreciate everything my stepdad has done for me. I guess the only thing you can do is discuss it with both of them, and find a special way to acknowledge them both.

its good to know im not the only one in this situation! i think we are all lucky to have 2 amazing dads in our lives, and i really think they will understand that i want both of them there…and like you all said its my wedding and i need to do what makes me happy! i was wondering about the flower thing to? seems like it will be a lot to handle, but i think i will just do a smaller bouquet…?
