Would you do it?

My condolences. My dad passed away 3 years ago today, so I understand as much as anyone can.
While I think it’s a beautiful idea, you & your family are the only ones that really know if it’s right for you or not. There are a couple of things I would think about before commiting to the date:
How did you feel on his birthday this year? Did you find that you were down or upbeat? How about your family immediate family? Will you have an easy time celebrating your wedding that day or are you the type where your thoughts often drift to your father instead?
I know for me, it would be a bad idea. I struggle through my dad’s birthday, Father’s Day, etc. However for you, it might be the perfect thing!
