I would do what feels best for you in what seems to be an awkward situation. You want this to be a cheerful and happy occasion, which includes cheerful and happy guests! Think about it some more and go with your gut. If your dad and his new wife won’t be attending, you can always do a separate dinner date with themand you two. If you pick a restaurant that has music and dancing, you all can even share a father/daughter dance together. 🙂

Listen to both what your heart is saying and your head. Depends on how you feel about sharing your day with others and being able to re-live to those memories afterwards. I would like to think your FI’s parents etc can put aside any differences for your special day. Perhaps speak to them to see if they are comfortable with it.

Would it be a huge issue to ask your dad to come alone? He should understnad that you want a peaceful, non-awkward day.
