that’s cute, is he serious about it? he cares about you 🙂 does he get upset if you dont listen or are these just suggestions?

my dad is being more help than all my BMs put together!  but he’s got  opinions and demands for the food, liquor, venue, photographer, etc though nothing about fashion yet.

Hi, you must be my long lost twin because my dad is the same!  He and my mom are generously providing a quarter of the wedding budget and I know that if I’m using some of their money they are entitled to an opinion but they said the same thing to me as your dad did to you! He said, “We’ll give you this much, use it how you want, we don’t need any say.”  But than I go and book a photographer I love and he’s like “Well, here’s what I really think you should’ve done”  Ugh!  Stick to your guns and just feel lucky enough that we have dads who care that much about us, even if it’s annoying

My dad is also really involved! Much more than my BMs. To be fair – both my parents are super involved and really excited – but dad literally sends me emails at work, “found this caterer – check him out and let me know what you think” “have you thought about an MC?” “here’s a nice  b&b” “your uncle has a carriage – if you want to use it I’ll arrange horses?”

Its really cute. He and I are big planners though, we both enjoy obsessing over details and planning the just in case measures. Whereas my mum is involved differently – she’s doing a lot to source decorations and will happily step back until I make a choice and then she will run with it to make it happen. I’m so lucky to have them both!

@NAvery:  It is great, particularly as we are planning from the other side of Australia! They are there, on the ground, in the town and can go view things and speak to vendors for me. Again – SO lucky!

Omg! My dad just told me he wants “BIG baskets of fruit on every table. They’re so colorful!” I was like…. uhhhh maybe. But yes, my dad is very opinionated and wants to be heard. I just take it one suggestion at a time.
