I think it’s pretty awesome that you and your step-mom have such a great relationship!  As long as you know your mom wouldn’t be upset, why the heck not?  (And I only say that because if your mom disliked your step-mom, it would be kinda awkward to see her at the altar with you and in every BP picture…)

I don’t think it’s wired at all. I too am VERY close with my stepmom, she’s a daily part of my life. I’m not that close with mom, but I still don’t want to hurt her feelings.

I say if you’re close, and you know your mom won’t take offense, go for it.

Unusual but not weird. And I think it’s a sweet gesture.

I think that is sweet. However I can see it being awkward for your Mom even if she has a good relationship with stepmother and even your Dad, just because she will be a more visable and have a bigger role then any of the parents invovled.

Perhaps having her in the program and escorted down the aisle.

If you were asking if it was weird to have your Mom as MOH, I’d be agreeing with you as it being a wonderful and touching experience for you both. But your SM instead? I’d be devastated as a Mom if my daughter chose her SM over me. I’d be surprised if your Mom wasn’t upset about it.

I don’t think you are hurting your MOM in anyway shape or form. Just pointing out making Stepmom such a visable part of the bridal party will overshawdow your Mother and your Father. I think having her escorted down the aisle like other older important women in your life like Mom, grandma is suffient.

However it’s your day if you are really set on it, go for it!

Having her escort your flower girl down is also a good compromise
