Only you know which you would rather have, or have both one on each side if they both mean the same to you

I'd personally have both...and you know if would probably mean the world to your step dad to be asked.

If your torn, they are obviously both important, so should both do it.

I would have both tbf.. if your torn, it seems like the both are a massive part of your life and if you were to have your step dad your real dad wouldn’t be happy x

It’s 2019 why not walk your self? To me the situation is dated

I’ve seen someone split it. One stepped in and took over from the other. Was lovely.

For my wedding day, I'm splitting this half way as the aisle isn't big enough for both to walk me down.

I’m having my brother as I couldn’t choose, both will do speeches and my mum is officiating (if she wasn’t she’d walk me down)
Not an easy decision but just follow what your heart tells you- it’s your day and you have to follow your heart not what tradition or other ppl say. Xxxx

My best friend had her two brothers walk her down, one on either arm so not to have to choose between her real dad and step xxx

Whoever you feel contributes most greatly to your wellbeing, joy, and sense of belonging in the family is the best choice

Why not both? If it can only be one, or both would be hurt by choosing the other, go for your mum, or if you feel like it has to be a man, go for a male best friend or brother. Lots of lovely options. Weddings are about love, not nursing hurt feelings.

Have your mum do it. I think mums deserve that privilege more than dads

Only you can decide on who you would like to give you away. I'm having my step dad give me away. He was the one Who brought me and my brothers up and I'm closer to him than my biological father.

If you feel that strongly about both of them, then they can both walk you down the aisle which I think would be amazing!
