My parents were divorced when I was 7. From then until I was about 18, I hardly ever even saw my Dad as we moved out of state with my Mom. My stepdad raised me through the rest of my childhood/teen years.
I moved back in with my Dad when I turned 18 and he helped me get on my feet and start a life here in my hometown.
I am getting married this summer and for some reason thought everybody could be mature and they could both walk my down without any feelings getting hurt but when I told my Dad, his reaction was not what I expected. "Im the one who made you, not him." "That would just be awkward."
I am in tears, I didnt think it would turn into a big deal. How do I do damage control here? Thanks.

agree 100% with tropicalmama
i'm not trying to be mean, and it's ok if you love your stepdad. it's wonderful that you have 2 fathers to love and support you. but you failed to consider the feelings of your biological father, who you owe your very existence to. you can't replace that, and he can't replace you.
