Wedding Music & Dancing: Which Dad for Father-Daughter Dance at Wedding Reception?


My parents have been divorced since I was quite young. While my stepfather has been a supportive and loving parent, my dad has always been a major part of my life. My problem is that I don't know which of them to choose for my father-daughter dance. I don't want to hurt my stepfather by dancing with my dad, and I don't want to hurt my dad by not doing it at all.


You're lucky to have two great dads and you should dance with both of them. Have the first with your birth father and the second with your stepfather. If you feel like two songs is too long, switch halfway through. No doubt both your father and stepfather will be touched by your decision.
