I have had a stepfather for several years, whom I love and respect as a father. I would like him to have a role at my wedding.

Do you have any suggestions?


There are various ways your step-father can be involved in your wedding. Here are a few ideas:

1. He could act as toastmaster for the speeches or cake cutting.
2. He could do a reading in the church.
3. If you don’t think your father will be offended, he could also make a speech at the reception.
