First of all, I really like your name. Makes me think of Polly Pocket!

Second, have you talked to your stepdad about this at all yet? If you explain to him that you’d like to give your mother the honor of walking you down the aisle, I bet he would understand it. As far as other ways to incorporate him, could you have him do a reading or maybe give a speech at the reception?

I think you should jusst have your mom walk you. If you and your stepdad are not that close, im sure he would understand why you would want you mom. If you guys are doing speeches or anything like that maybe you can just thank him for being there for you or even write him a personal note or card thanking him for being in you life.

I don’t see why he’d be offended if you had your mom walk you down.

If your not that close to him then he wont be expecting to walk you down the aisle. If you would rather have your mom do it then let her walk you down the aisle. I’m sure he will understand.

has he or your mother expressed a preference that he walk you down the aisle?  if not, maybe you could approach your mother first and explain that it would mean a lot to her if she walked you down the aisle.
