My advice would be to be honest with your dad. Let him know that since you’re dealing with a lot of pressure, FI has been a little sensitive and that while you really appreciate his efforts and offer to help you’re going to have to ask him to step back for a while. Let him know that its nothing personal, but just a favor you need in order to make the transition into husband and wife / independent couple easier for you guys.

Maybe tell FI: “I know you want to make this perfect for us to start our lives together, but we need help otherwise we’ll both be too stressed to enjoy all our hard work. Are there some projects that are less of a priority to you that my dad could help on? It’s important to him too that we have a beautiful house for our marriage and even though you’re my #1 guy now, he’ll always be my dad and I can’t just cut him out of our lives.”
