In a way, I understand what you are going through. Not from the first person parent perspective, but we just lost my fiance’s dad unexpectedly a month ago, and it has completely changed the tone of the wedding and the excitement I had for it. He was truly a pillar of the family, and a bright light in all our lives. Now I just feel this pang of sadness and I hope that I can get the excitement back.

If I can offer any comfort, it’s what people keep telling me- he would want it to continue, and if not just for me, but to give the rest of the family and everyone else around something to look forward to. It may seem like “bad” timing because of what’s happening, but really it’s good because there’s something happy to focus on. It just lets you refocus on the actual marriage, and not just the wedding “event.”

I wish you the best!

Just because he can’t travel doesn’t mean he won’t be there.  I’m soooo sorry that all of this happenEd and I sincerely hope your father gets better.  If he can’t travel, there’s Skype, there’s webcams….it won’t be ideal, but it can work…your Daddy wants you to enjoy your day, and even though it’s hard, you enjoy it for him because it’s the best he can do just now.

@lpisanelli:  I am so sorry, that is very hard.  Can you get a videographer or do it over skype?

Not to turn this into myself, but my dad had a massive stroke at the beginning of july, he was in the icu for a week, they determined the cause and it was a birth defect – malformed blood vessels in the brain.  Well he had brain surgery a wrek ago, doing well so far.  But it is a very real emotion of realizing that your dad may not make it for your wedding.  I had so many breakdowns, and i am so unprepared to not have my dad in my life and especially not there to walk me down the aisle.  So i completrly understand and wish the best for you and will keep you in my thoughts.

I can completely relate to you. My Dad passed away last week, 7 weeks before the wedding and it’s devestating (I’m not saying this will happen to your Dad). We are going ahead with the wedding as it was my Dads wishes for us and I will miss him so much.

Stay strong and I hope he makes a full recovery

So sorry that your Dad is unwell. I hope he does make a speedy recovery and that your wedding day will be magical. I lost my Daddy 6 weeks after our wedding very unexpectedly too. It was a week before Thanksgiving and all the holidays it just crushed me…It is very hard as we get older we have to worry about our parents getting older too. Just know that your Dad is happy you found a man that will love you as much as he has loved you all his life and he does not want you to post pone anything no matter what. He just wants you to be happy. And I’m sure your Dad is a fighter and I genuinely hope he will be bettter soon. Even if he cant make it to the wedding, and has to stay home, he will always be with you! Keep planning your big day. This is what he wants for his baby girl i’m sure! *HUGS*
