Ask Liz: Who Should Walk Me Down the Aisle?

Dear Liz:

I'm getting married next June, and I have a little bit of a dilemma. My mother remarried when I was four, so I grew up with my Step- Dad. I'm close with my real father, too. I would like both of them to walk me down the aisle, but is that weird? My step-dad joked that people would think that he and my Dad were "together," but he's okay with it. I haven't talked to my Dad about it, yet. I love the idea, but I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable. What should I do?


My Two Dads

Dear Two,

First of all, I think that walking down the aisle with the two men who raised you is very sweet. I always say that you can do whatever you want on your wedding day, you just have to figure out how. The first step to that is asking your Dad NOW if he's okay with this. Don't spring it on him in the last minute. If he has an issue with it, best to know now, so you have plenty of time to decide what to do.

Confidential to Type A: You can probably get the invitations done over the weekend yourselves - one of you addresses and the other stuffs. If you're going to print the addresses out from your computer, no labels! Lint gets stuck under them and it looks gross. Figure out how to print it on the envelope and get an extra cartridge of printer ink. And, if this sounds like a hassle that you don't have time for, call a stationery store and get a couple names of calligraphers. There isn't a wedding problem alive that you can't throw money at. It just depends on how worried you are about it.

See you at the end of the aisle,
