First – I’m jealous of your stairs, I wanted stairs to walk down! 🙂  It will be so dramatic for you to walk down the stairs and meet your father at the bottom – awesome! 

Okay onto your real question. I would say to only have your father walk you down the aisle.  You said yourself – you are not very close with your godparents, and the walk down the aisle, that’s a big deal!

Instead of walking down the aisle, what about having them do a reading?  or dedicate a special song to them at the reception for you and you fiance to dance with them (either two couples or you with your uncle and your fiance with your aunt — Not sure if he’d be comfortable with that.) They could also be escorted down the aisle in the processional — before your grandparents and have their names listed in the program. 

We are inviting our godparents to our rehersal dinner — it’s just immediate family, wedding party, and godparents — we plan to "honor" them the night before by thanking them for being there throughout our lives.

What do you think? Good ideas?

You can give him a boutineer and her either a small bouquet or a corsage too — then others will note that they are "special" … Also you could have the DJ/Band announce then into the reception … before your parents and your wedding party and then YOU! All up to you!

My godmother is very close to me and I was actually looking for a way to honor her in my wedding (she’s my mother’s best friend of over 30 years). I was planning on choosing a small corsage (probably a wrist one), which is smaller than the mothers’ but enough to signify that she is special to the wedded couple. She’s been a huge part of my life and I hope she appreciates a little recognition in my wedding.

I’m also planning on inviting her to my rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.. is that uncommon?

I’d had brides who wanted me to design programs with a special dedication page for their special loved ones. I think that’s a good way of incorporating that in without having to "call them out."
