I think that this is a time to honor the person that raised you, rather than the person that is your blood relation.   If you’re closer to your step dad, that is who I would dance with.

Would it be possible to have your step-dad "cut in" halfway through the dance, so that you’d be able to dance with both of them?

When my step sister got married she did as the above poster suggested and had her dad dance half a song and my dad dance half a song. It worked out.

2nd to Hobochic, I think raising you/being present for you for 20+ (I’m just guessing) years should be honored greatly. I would find some other way to honor your real dad by having him as a reader. Splitting your dance in half is also an option.

My cousin was raised by her step dad.  She also has a relationship with her birth dad.  She chose to have father daughter dances.  She danced with both of them and chose different songs for each.  I am pretty sure she danced with them back to back.  I can’t remember who danced first her dad or step dad.  We thought it was a great way to honor both men in her life.
