All I can say is breathe and plough through. I too feel your pain. Mine is more of like, one parent is paying for the wedding, and the other parents/FILs want to run how the wedding goes. Not to mention Fiance wants to invite everyone and their mother to the wedding…..and now the courtesy invite list has exploded. Then when I use the word “budget” Fiance wants to throw each guest under the bus and cross them off the list, including important VIPs like his own grandma. Somehow booze is more important than grandmas. He also wants to cut out the entire floral/decor budget line item, but is not involved in any of the DIY projects, oh yes, that’s me. Somehow everything will magically come together. It’s comical over here. I really need a reality show. 

Just keep going.  Try to do a little each day/week. Set goals and timelines. Once you make a decision, don’t go back & second guess yourself and change the whole shebang. It’s not whining, it’s good to vent!

I am so sorry that its so stressful right now.  Budget is always hard.  I do think you should take the help that your father is offering, especially since it sounds like you need it. Good Luck
