I think what you have is a great idea. In that situation I’d also have a hard time dancing with my ‘father’. But with this you at least acknowledge that he’s your bio-dad and that he’s contributing and since your real dad doesn’t mind it seems like the best way to go about it.

My Mom always felt her step-dad was her dad. But he died before she got married so she had her real father there, BUT had her older brother walk her down the aisle and do the ‘father-daughter’ dance.

I am having the same dilemma! my mother and stepfather have been together for 13 years my parents have been divorced about 18 years and i would be lucky to even see my dad once every 12 months since they were divorced but he is coming to the wedding.

I was thinking about just having my mum walk me down but i feel like my stepdad should be there too. on the other hand i don’t want to offend my dad or make anyone fell akward! i just think no matter what i decide i will offend someone! 

I think your first dance idea is great, i just have no desire to have my dad involved on any level but really just don’t want the confrontation!

my daughter has chosen to have her father and her step father walk her down the aisle.  To give her father his special time with her, she is having him walk her alone from the base of the stairs indoors to the outdoor ceremony, and from the end (or is it beginning?) of the aisle, she will have her step father waiting to pick her up and they will all three walk the remainder together.  This allows for a kind of “timeline of her life” dad was there from the beginning, and step dad joined her life as a tween…….  I hope it looks as good as it sounds…….

I’m having both my father and stepfather walk me down the aisle. I have known since I was very young that this is what I would do on my wedding day, since they have both had an equally important role in my life.
