Wedding, step-dad or real dad? Who should walk me?

April 29th, 2011

I was watching Last Chance Harvey, and his daughter chooses her step-father to walk her down the isle. Harvey becomes absolutely β™₯ broken. I plan to get married soon and i have a step-father who was there when my real father couldn’t be. I love them both and i am very close to both. I consider them both my father. But, who should walk me down the isle? :/

    how about both? I am sure if you ask them and they knew how much it ment to you, I am sure they would be fine with it πŸ™‚

    they both love you and you love both of them and you have two arms πŸ˜€ go figure πŸ˜‰

    It’s your day. Pick the man you want to walk you down the aisle. Only you can make that decision. If you pick your real dad, your step-dad will (or at least should) understand since it’s your dad. If it’s the other way around, you will probably have to explain your reasoning to your biological dad.

    They can both walk you down. There’s no reason you need to just pick one. Otherwise you should talk to them both about it and try to comprimise. Maybe if one walks you the other will get to make the toast. Or get the first dance. It’s up to you how you want to handle it.

    your real dad..he was there when you were born and probably knows you more than your step dad was. well i would definitely choose my real dad if it was me..your real dad is the one who married your mom first, was there when you were born, your step dad is just another guy that your mom met. and im pretty sure your real dad and you had lots of memories together..more memories than your step dad. and im sure your real dad would be absolutely honored to walk you down the aisle and im sure your step dad will understand since he’s your real dad and all πŸ™‚ i would definitely pick your real dad if i were you πŸ™‚ it would make him really happy <3 i mean.. he is your REAL dad..

    Neither? I’m all for walking yourself down the aisle.

    Both… dressed as ninjas.

    I just went to wedding that had a similar situation…..I thought the brides solution was great….She walked down the aisle by herself… and both “dads” walked together behind her. She said they both always “had her back” so that’s what they were doing… “protecting her back”….I also liked that the minister asked ” who gives this man and woman in marriage”.. ALL the parents said “we do”…it was very cool.

    your biological father.

    Don’t make a decision like this based on a Hollywood movie. Consider factors liked who has influenced you more in your life, is more supportive of your wedding and has sacrificed more to help you achieve your goals in life. Forget Harvey.

    I have recently been to two weddings where the bride was in a similar situation to what you are now.
    One bride could not chose between her Dad and Step Dad as during her life they had both been there and supported her through life so she chose to have both walk her down the aisle and give her away, that way you could have both your Dads give you away and walk you down the aisle.

    The other bride chose a less traditional option and so not to upset either her Dad or Step Dad and chose to have her Mum walk her down the aisle and give her away of which both Dads were more than happy for her to do.

    The other option is why does anyone have to walk you down the aisle, you could walk down alone and then when the question is asked who gives this woman away Both your dads (and Mum if you wanted) could answer “we do”

    Its ultimately up to you and Im sure both your Dads love you enough to support you with the decision you make.

    Good Luck

    I would choose real dad.
    Im sure the stepfather would understand seeing as though he is your REAL DAD!
    Maybe give your step dad another important role somewhere else throughout the wedding?

    I would ask both of them to walk me down the aisle.

    Or have one walk me down the aisle and one to do that father daughter dance.
