I’m so sorry to hear that you’re going through this. I personally have been very lucky with my parents, but I do have several friends that have struggled with alcoholic fathers and it is so heartbreaking to hear of the constant letdowns that come with that.

Is your father still doing well with staying sober? If so, that’s certainly a big step! Sounds like he’s a little down in the dumps about things in his life, and if thoughts of your marriage were enough to get him on the right path once, hopefully it will work again! Perhaps you could help him feel more involved, maybe send him a picture of your dress or discuss some wedding plans with him, such that he feels like he really NEEDS to be there. You can be the light at the end of his tunnel.

I really hope that things work out for you. At the very least, it sounds like you’ll have lots of friends and family there who love you very much and are genuinely excited not only to see you get married but to have an amazing vacation in Sri Lanka! Best of luck to you both and I’m sure it will be beautiful 🙂
