    Ladies, Ladies-

    Again, I need some opinions (I feel so needy!!). Here is the story: My Grandparents raised me. I lived with them for 75% of my life, and owe them the full credit of every opportunity I've had. My step-dad has been in the family since I was 5, and he is the father of my two younger sisters. When I was young, we never got along. But now that I'm older, we've gotten a lot closer. I have never CALLED him 'Dad' but in the past 7 or so years, I've referred to him as Dad to not make him feel bad referring to him as StepDad. He has always told me that he felt like I was his daughter. Not to mention that he is SO stoked about his DAUGHTER getting married.

    So the question: My Grandpa is walking me down the aisle, hands down. I'm making welcome books with a 'Meet the Guests' page- and wanted to say who people were to us under their name......I don't know what to do in regards to my StepDad!? I don't want to put that title, but for the guests that don't know the full story, I would hate for them to think bad of the fact that my Grandpa is walking me down the aisle instead of my 'Dad'....

    Thoughts? Thanks as always ladies, for the advice!!!!

      Can you just say parents and put him and your mom together. So that you aren't really giving him a label.

        That's what I would suggest too....I have a step dad too but will not be giving him much as far as "labels" go since he has not been a big part of my life and I was already a grown adult when he came around. And my real father has always been a part of my life.

        I would try to just say Parents and leave it at that!

          First, I don't think anyone would ever think badly of you for having your Grandpa walk you down the aisle. I think it will be obvious how close you are.

          As for your Stepfather - It depends - you can put "Mother and Husband", "Mother and StepFather" or "Parents" -

          I think Parents will be easier, look best and not offend your Stepfather, who obviously loves you...whether you were close in the past is not as important as NOW.

              Alright- I think I put WAY too much thought into this. I will be putting Dad on the book! If people have questions, they can ask

                I would go with Dad...I have a similar situation and I think that it would crush my step fathers heart if I said anything but that.

                  Glad you were able to find a solution that you are happy with. And don't worry about who will think what about your Grandpa walking you down the aisle. I think it is very sweet!

                      Im glad you came to a decision and I thin it is wonderful too that your grandpa is walking you down the aisle what a honor for him and what a wonderful opportunity for you to have him in your life and be so close!!
