Is your dad walking you down the aisle, or doing a father-daughter dance, or doing a father-of-the-bride speech? Traditionally those are three very prominent roles for the father of the bride, and the father of the groom doesn’t have any comparable role. (The reason of course being that traditionally the bride’s father paid). So if your father is doing any or all of them (and his father isn’t), I think it’s fair enough that your fiance’s father does the prayer, because he doesn’t have any other role.

That said, I think it would also be fine if either father said a prayer during the ceremony.

Could one not do a blessing over the meal and the other over the dessert or something… Couldn’t they do a blessing together over the food

Maybe your dad could say a blessing before the cake cutting? Or over the rings before the exchange of rings?
