I've seen a lot of posts/questions (and good answers) about replacing dads in various traditions, like walking down the aisle and father/daughter dance. However, it seems that for most of these cases, the bride's dad isn't invited to the wedding at all. My dad will be at the wedding (ceremony and reception), but because of our - uh, let's call it tense - relationship, I won't be having him do those things. My mom will be walking me down the aisle and I haven't decided if I'm doing a dance with her or just skipping it.
Anyway, my question is whether people have experience (or are planning this experience) and how awkward/potentially contentious it has been. My dad's parents will be there as well as my siblings (all of whom do talk to him), and I'm worried about backlash in general, as well as the utter awkwardness of my dad watching someone else walk me down the aisle.
