A little background here:
My dad is a total Type A personality. He loves control and has a huge anxiety issue. As the wedding nears (only nine days!) his anxiety is getting so bad that he is having massive skin breakouts! I’ve answered all of his questions–but I think it would do him a lot of good to just have a ‘job’ at the wedding; to give him a menial task to keep him busy.
Have any of you done this? What should I put Dad ‘in charge’ of?
Any input would be helpful! Thanks!

Why not ask him to hand out programs? Or ask him to greet the guests as they come in, that way he can see everyone, but be ‘in control’ of who’s coming and going.
If he needs something to do that morning, you could ask him to help you put all the programs in whatever container you’re using, or help you finish packing your bags into the car or whatever.

I was going to say to put him in charge of the groomsmen/ushers. That oughta take up some time and be beneficial in the end.

Give him the financial chores: handing out the final checks to all the vendors. Then he’ll have to meet all the vendors as they come in, organize the checks, and hand them out. He’ll be plenty busy, but have lots of control so maybe that’ll make him feel better?

I agree with Corn that he could coordinate groomsmen and ushers. He’s have something concrete to do that would keep him busier than handing out programs would.
Good luck! I hope your daddy can breathe deeply and enjoy himself on your big day!
