1. When asked “Who gives this bride?’ They could all stand up and say “” We all do”.

2. You could hand a rose to all 4 of them during the ceremony.

3.You could ask him to do a reading.

4.You could have them all particpate in a Unity Candle ceremony.


5.You could do a sand ceremony where each of the parents/step -parents carries a vial of sand. (Your Mom, step-dad, Dad and step-mom all carry the same color, FI’s family carries his color) They all pour their sand into the respective vessel, then the two of you combine the sand into one.

6. You could ask your stepfather to say grace at the reception.

@mama32011:  you could honor him more privately as well, with a hand written card thanking him for all that he has done fo you, and filled a role he didn’t have to, and such like that. make it from the heart, and include a just as awesome gift.  that would probably mean more to him then another dance.
