lauragee:  Can you involve the Dads in the ceremony over Skype or Facetime?

You could probably get married at your dad’s hospice if his presence is most important to you.  Most have pastors/rabbis/priests on staff and they’d probably rather do a wedding than a funeral. 

Having my daddy at my wedding would be the most important thing to me, you could have his mom skype and spring her for a couple hours for your reception back home with friends/family.  We all have ideas of what our wedding will be like, but I’d rather tell my kids that I got married at Grandpa’s bedside than he missed our wedding, but the dog was there.  You know?

I can completely understand you wanting your father to be there. I’m a lot younger than you and both of my parents have passed away. I was afraid something was going to happen to my grandfather so I bought my dress and had pics made with him in it months before I got engaged. He passed away the day after I got engaged and I have been dealing with the estate for the past almost 4 months. It is such a stressful time and add on wedding planning, it can quickly become too much. I would probably try to do a ceremony at his hospice and then have a reception or something back home with your friends.
