@MissOtter: I’m so sorry you are dealing with this and I hope you are feeling a little better. Your mom sounds wonderful and it’s so sweet that she’s trying to take the burden off of you and take care of things herself.
I feel like your dad is trying, and wants to help and make your day special, but just doesn’t know how. And all the divorce drama is clouding it. There’s nothing to say but that sucks all around.
I have divorce drama in my family too, and I’ve learned the best way to deal with all the wedding stuff is to just pay for it ourselves. If you can, take them out of the equation completely. That way, if they help you, it’s just a bonus, but you’re not relying on them. It sounds like your mom is doing that, but I wouldn’t ask your dad to help provide anything that’s super crucial to you.
((HUGS)) and I hope things get better!
