    @echolove:  Tell your parents & why are you putting a deposit down on a venue if you aren’t engaged? Sorry that doesn’t make sense to me. Your dad deserves to know so he has time to prepare for you to leave. It’s not fair to him to find out last minute. Don’t rely on your SO to handle it in 10 days.

    @echolove:  “Should I just tell my parents tomorrow about our plans; get it all out in one day?” Yes. In the words of the smartest crab ever annimated: “If you want something done right. you have to do it yourself…”

    @echolove:  What is stopping you from making it offical? A ring? A proposal?

    @echolove:  Ohhhh okay, makes sense. Yes I think you should tell your dad. Explain that you would have loved to keep traditions but the timing was not right. He is your dad and will understand if you are honest with him.

    @echolove:  I think first you should present the idea to your SO about talking to the parents together. Maybe he has just been super nervous about gathering the courage to tell him solo? This could be a great way to tag-team the discussion. Maybe he could ask your Dad for his blessing and you could bring up that you will both be moving in the very near future?

    But I have to say I wouldn’t feel comfortable booking the venue until everything was official and settled. Something may come up in the conversation like parents suggesting a venue, a friend has a hookup, maybe you ultimately decide having the marriage in your new town is a great idea — life is always throwing curve balls.
