I don’t want to launch to much into it, but I haven’t seen my dad in years and miss him dearly… he can’t make it to the wedding (he’s had a lot of…, problems), he kept saying he’d try but can’t afford it. I started crying not because I wouldn’t be walked down the aisleby him, not because he wouldn’t be at the ceremony, but because I won’t have that daddy/daughter dance… It breaks my heart. All I can think of is how all the other girl’s dads were there for dance recitals, except mine. And now he won’t be there again…. my FH said I could dance with his grandpa or my mom, but I said no, I don’t want to dance with anyone else. It will just make me cry, because they’re not my dad.

I’m very sorry. Is there any way for you to guys to pay for his travel? I would say maybe you can cut from another aspect of the wedding, but I see that your wedding is in two days…

@meliss: No, if I had any way to contact him beforehand I may have been able to, but I didn’t have his number and it was impossible for me to contact him. He just called me about an hour ago.
Thank you bees for the support and hugs. It helps 🙂

That post makes me so sad. I’m so sorry. I was thinking there was a way he could still make it, but I see your wedding is in 2 days 🙁
I am so close to my dad. He is everything to me. I can’t imagine how you must be feeling. Just know that your dad will be there in spirit. And if it’s possible to look at the positive side of things, your dad WANTED to be there. I bet there are other brides who’s dad just didnt even care about them.

@cyndistar3: Thank you *hugs* He said he’ll make it here in the summer and celebrate with me then, so I just need to think positively.
@futuremrskelsey: You’re right, some people aren’t as lucky as I am. A lot of my family hates my dad, but I could never. After all he is my dad 🙂

I dont have the exact same problem as you but my dad passed away a few years ago from cancer. There are some days I cry because I know I am missing out on a few things that I will never get to do with him.
