    I don’t think that’s unreasonable! My wedding is the day before, and only one person threw a fit.

    But I would definitely come up with a way to honor all of the fathers/grandfathers/etc on that day! You could have fun with it. 🙂

    Yes, definitely honor the dads in the room!

    I would have no problem with it – my dad is local and very cool.  I would spend a different day with him in exchange.

    I’m a bridesmaid in a wedding on Father’s day in a couple of weeks (it’s a Sunday wedding).  No one has said anything about it and I’m just celebrating with my dad when I get back in town that week.

    I don’t imagine it’d be a huge deal wiht most people.  As stated above, definitely give a shout out to the dads – but don’t let it get to you…  it’s a Hallmark holiday, anyway – parents should be honored everyday, not just once a year!

    I don’t… have a need to celebrate Father’s Day so it wouldn’t bother me at all.  But some people I know traditionally go all our for their fathers on that day.  So if that’s the case with some people on your guest list, you might have a few more declines than you might otherwise, were it just a regular Sunday.  But, I think most people will just do whatever they plan to do on another day and make it to your wedding.

    I think it would be so darling to honor all the fathers in attendance that day.  Maybe inexpensive boutonierres (like a single carnation) for each dad?

    Unless you were family or a very close friend, I’d skip it.  One of my cousins got married on Mother’s Day and it did not go over very well.

    I wouldn’t go. Mothers Day and Fathers Day are a big deal in my family. I got a lot of flack on a post a while back because I’m attending a wedding next weekend and they are having a Sunday brunch on Father’s Day and clearly my FI and I are not attending because the wedding is a few hours drive from where we live and apparently the bride was all kinds of pissy that people weren’t going to go to the brunch (an OPTIONAL event) because they wanted to go home and be with their fathers. I found it to be obnoxious that she would say something so I posted about it and the hive pretty much ate me alive because I guess most people don’t care about Fathers Day. Well, I do. Unless it was my BFF or a family wedding where my Father would be there, no I would not go. I’d send a gift, though.

    Personally I don’t think it is that big of a deal. Don’t get me wrong, I am close with both of my parents, I just don’t really need Hallmark telling me when or where to spend my time with them.

    I don’t really think it is a big deal either.
