Father vs. Stepfather: Who should walk me down the aisle?



Dear Tamara:

I am getting married in less than two months and I still have not decided who will walk me down the aisle and give me away. This has been a huge issue in my house and has been causing a tremendous amount of stress. I cannot choose between my biological father and my stepfather.

My parents divorced when I was 2 and my mother remarried when I was 6. I did not have a strong relationship with my father growing up, but we recently reconnected and have been getting pretty close. On the other hand, my stepfather raised me and we have an extremely close relationship. My biological parents do not get along and my mother doesn’t even want my biological father at the wedding. My stepfather, who is paying for the wedding, claims to be neutral. He told me to make my decision and that he would support it no matter what. He has held this position from the beginning, but I know he really wants to walk me down the aisle. I am his only daughter and I don’t want him to feel left out or displaced because my biological father is back in the picture.
