I don’t think you could have seen your dad’s reaction coming! Don’t beat yourself up about it. Also, if the rehearsal is in April, there’s always the option of opening it up to outdoor seating? Maybe your mom could be inside and your dad outside or something.

You aren’t crazy.  I don’t quite understand what you wrote about the $$ situation with your dad but from what I do understand you’re taking your inlaws up on a sweet offer that would let a lot of people at the wedding have a good time.

I feel for you! The whole “parent money contribution” can get very touchy.

In my situtation my FIL took it upon himself to call my parents and ask them why weren’t paying for the wedding!!!! And to “inform” them that the brides family was supposed to pay for the wedding!!! The “reason” he did this is bc my husband was confiding in him that he was upset my parents weren’t contributing more & my husband was PISSED when he found out his father called my parents (who FIL had only met once!)

My parents are very forgiving and although my dad was upset (b/c the call was from one man to another) he was the bigger man and still treated my FIL with respect. But this was a DIASTER!!!

Just keep your head up and try not to let your parents stress you out!!
