Hmmm… who is paying? Or equal contribution from both families? If equal then maybe have them both give you away if you’re doing that. 

Your biological dad could walk you down the aisle as a nod to his birth right,  then have both men stand to give you away. 

Then let them both say something during toast  (biological dad first), and then give both a father daughter dance… or have your step dad “cut in” so they share a dance…. But only if they both agree to the last. 

If your biological dad is primarily footing the bill,  then they shouldn’t be equal in my opinion,  but,  you can still recognize your step dad in your toast and have a special dance with him.

hickoryhills :  You could have them both walk you down, or have your dad walk you down and meet your step dad half way etc., Have two daddy/daughter dance (i would shorten them up though)

However, i had my Step dad and Mom walk in together to start the precession and then my dad walk me down the aisle. I did my dance with my dad and my step dad did a speech.

Hey Bee! I also have two dads because my parents divorced when I was so young and then remarried. Like you, I have a great relationship with both my dad and step das and I have a wedding to plan! 

I asked around a lot. My plan is to have my dad officiate and my step dad walk me down. If my dad wasn’t officiating, I was going to either walk with both or just walk by myself. And for the father daughter dance, I’m doing a half or short song with my dad and another half or short song with my step dad.

I’m going to have my step dad walk me half way down the aisle to my father who will be waiting. He will walk me to my groom.
