Just to update: My father isn’t being forceful about the Fl beach wedding by any means. I think he has it in his head that if he doesn’t have to pay for him, my mother, my brother, his parents to stay at a destination wedding location, he’d be able to contribute more to help us out. This is just how he is so I know he’d pay for them.
And +1 to everyone who said my father is not a bank machine. I think a big part of his wanting to pay for the wedding in south Fl has to do with the connections he has, work favors owed to him, etc, so really he would be able to have for us a nice event that would not break him.
Also: FH’s family is from PA, MD and NJ. Since my family is in FL, we thought it would be nice if everyone met each other somewhere in the middle (NC or SC).
Thanks everyone for your ideas and please keep them coming! I really thought (dumbly) that it was as simple as ‘If the father wants to pay tradition says….’ but I suppose it’s not! If I didn’t reply to all of you yet I’m sorry, I didn’t reply to everyone with repeating views yet.
