- Wedding: March 2013
Extremely long story made short, my relationship with my father is virtually non-existent. We’ve probably spoken twice in the past year (via email) and I haven’t seen him in five years or so, even though he lives less than an hour away. We’ve always had a relationship like this – since I was 14 I’ve seen him maybe three times.
Anyway, he’s being invited to the wedding as a guest, not the father of the bride. He’s not walking me down the aisle, not contributing to the wedding and there will be no father daughter dance. I heard through the grapevine that he’s dating a woman, but I’ve never met her and I don’t know if that’s still true. I had always intended to only invite him to the wedding without a plus one, but now I’m wondering if that’s just a generally awful thing to do.
Side story is that he barely gets along with his own family, but I’m seating them together anyway, because I have no where else to put him.
Our general rule for plus ones was that anyone who was in any kind of relationship at all was invited to bring a guest and those in our Wedding party are invited to bring a guest, even if they’re not currently in a relationship.
