Hi ladies and gents, here's a question that's bothered me ever since the idea of getting married crossed my mind (I'm not getting married anytime soon, just wondering!). In traditional American weddings, the bride's father walks her down the aisle. In the absence of the bride's father, usually another male relative stands in. But what happens when the bride has *two* fathers? My parents split when I was a baby and remarried when I was quite young, so I've always grown up with two fathers. I call both "dad." So who walks me down the aisle? The seeming right answer is my biological father, but I'm not nearly as close to him as my stepfather. Complicating the matter is the fact that my biological mom and dad detest each other and haven't spoken in probably 24-25 years. If I chose my stepfather to walk me down the aisle, I don't know that my dad's family would even show up they'd be so put out. If I chose my biological father, same with my mom's family (they'd show, but there would be a lot of fighting and a lot of tears). It's a no win situation Like I said, I have no plans to get married soon, but any time the thought of a wedding crosses my mind I get sad because wedding ceremonies are really not designed for women with families like mine. I'm planning on eloping at this point! Anyone been in this situation? Anyone seen a bride simply walk herself down the aisle?
