      Getting married in 4 months
      Posted: Jan 26th 2020
    My dad passed away 8 months ago. I will have my mum walk me down the aisle and I want her to do the speech as well. However she bought up that my step-dad could walk me down the aisle. When I said no to this she said she’d like him to do the speech so he’s included. I don’t want this as it feels disrespectful to my dad and it’s never been something I wanted. I don’t want it to cause tension between my mum and I. What ways could I include my step-dad that don’t include walking me down the aisle or doing a speech?

    You could get him to MC the wedding. So introducing you to your guests as Mr & Mrs / Mrs & Mrs / etc and announcing the speeches and maybe have a dance with him at the evening do. Thats what i would do. That way he is still included in the festivities?
