For my first wedding I had my grandpa walk me down the aisle. I've always been closer to him than my own dad, and respected him more as a father figure too. But he passed away last winter.
So now I don't know who to choose. I could choose my brother, but I think it might hurt my dad if I don't choose him again, especially after all his attempt at reaching out to me ever since my first wedding. Things are not so rough with my him anymore, so I guess I could choose him to make him happy.
I really like the idea of having both parents do it though, as my mom is really the one who has been there for me all these years.

here you can see the stairs in the background - my dad was waiting at the top for me, and my mom at the bottom.

I also think that it will offend the least number of people. Neither dad can argue that mom was and is #1, even if it is tradition. Plus I could never pick one over the other. I wish all of them could walk me, but 4 people down the aisle...a little much. I will try to include my dads in other special ways on that day...any ideas??
This is exactly what Im going through right now. Mom and step dad raised me but still have a relationshipo with my real dad. I agree with you that my mom is the most influential person in my life but I really want both my dad's too. Its so hard to pic without hurting someone.
