I agree that your dad is manipulating you. He had you by the hook for an entire YEAR waiting for an answer. Also- it is in no way fair to you that he is expressing this 12 days before the wedding. It sounds like personal issues that your dad is going through…

I wish I hadn’t read that after eating lunch.
Your father obviously doesn’t realise that vomit-inducing words mean NOTHING. It’s actions that counts, and by his actions, I still think your father is an shit stirring arsehole.
Heaven help any person who would make a grown adult man like my Fiance jump through hoops like some sort of performing seal.

Might wanna read the update before flinging insults.

I did. It was the father’s speech that made me feel ill.

I agree with you about making the poor guy jump through a gazillion hoops like a trained seal. Sounds like the dad has quite the inflated sense of self!
But, OP, I’m glad it worked out and that your dad has come around. Congrats on your marriage 🙂

I know my dad wouldn’t say anything if he didn’t truely mean them. He’s not one to spout off a lot of fluff and then go back on his word. He chose what he said very carefully because that’s what he sees in my DH, and has been extremely welcoming and protective and friendly with him since they cleared the air about the miscommunication. I agree that he took his job as father of the bride too seriously, but he didn’t MAKE my DH do anything. We could have easily gotten engaged and married without even asking him. He wouldn’t have been happy about it, and it would have caused some hurt feelings, but I wasn’t on lockdown in his house. I still had free will to marry who I wanted. My husband and I both wanted to do it his way to show respect, and get the blessing which was important to my dad and me. I only feel more honored that I found an amazing man that would put up with the extra requirements of my dad.

@Equine_Breeder: I agree. It sounds like your dad was playing power games and it is really unfair to put your Fiance through this
