Yes you keep her as a BM, and allow her one guest of her choice, like any other atendee would have.

Stick with your guns and stay with the one you have.

And in most states, you have to be 18 or emancipated to sign your own contract. (which i dont think you mentioned prior to your questions and could potentially sway me to answer differently on the second one!)

I believe that any contract signed under the age of 18 is invalid unless the guardians signature is also on the contract. This could be different in your state, though.

And I think if your dad is paying for the venue you shouldn’t have signed the contract to begin with. You say he looked at the contract but that doesn’t mean he agreed to the venue, and he did ask you to wait. I don’t think it would hurt to look at other venues considering you probably aren’t legally contracted with the first one anyways.

I think you should have your father go sign it. Honestly at this moment the venue has no legal obligation to you until someone 18 or older signs it. They could give away your date or back-out the day before your wedding if they really wanted to. However for their protection they should want a valid contract, too.

You can look and ask for contracts but they won’t be valid unless you have once of your parents sign them.

But honestly you need your parents to come with you to get your marriage license (since you aren’t 18 yet), so this isn’t much different.
