Your wedding day! Oh, how much you’ve dreamed about it! How much effort you’ve put into planning every single detail about it! How greatly stressed out you may be for everything to turn out perfect!
All these things are only natural – after all, your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of event. It is a moment you will want to cherish and to remember fondly. It is a moment when you want all of those who stand by you to be happy – and this includes everyone, from your bridesmaids and groomsmen to your parents and stepparents.
How to involve your stepparents in your wedding and ensure they feel happy and important on the Big Day? We have gathered some tips to help you with this – so read on if you want to find out more.
The invitations. Want to send out the right message from the very beginning? Include your stepparents on the invitations, just as you will do with your parents. Also, keep in mind that you can do this on other types of stationery too – the wedding programs, for example.
Ceremony. You can definitely choose to be walked down the aisle by both of your fathers. Some brides choose to have their father walk them halfway through the aisle and their stepfather take over from there. Other brides choose to walk with both of their fathers on their side.
Receiving line. Include your stepparents in the receiving line to show them (and the other guests) how important they are to you. This is a small gesture, but it can speak amazingly about your relationship with your stepparents.
