- Wedding: February 2012
My fiance and I are putting a wedding together pretty quickly. I want it to be only some friends and close family. As it is, it’s getting bigger everyday. My father left my mother about a year and a half ago and needless to say, they don’t have the best of relationships. He never contacts any of his children, not even holidays or birthdays. My mom says he could if he really wanted to even though we’ve all gotten new numbers. It wouldn’t feel right to have him walk me down the aisle. I called where he works to find him and invite him and I was so nervous that I forgot to tell him that I didn’t want him to bring the woman he left my mom for. The idea of calling him is so unnerving that I put it off and now I’m trying to find the nerve to call him and tell him not to bring her. Fiance thinks I’m not wanting him to walk me down the aisle because my mom is in my ear. I’m wondering if I should have even invited him at all and just told him we are eloping instead. I don’t know if I’d regret it or not. This is stressing me out more than anything.
