call her and tell her to call you back when she is alone. just ask her… she might get upset, but she also just may be looking for someone to talk to , without feeling like she will be judged or that you are trying to talk her out of it.

Good Luck!

I don’t think you have missed anything that you could have noticed.  I am 24 also, and it sounds like maybe she feels like she is being forced into a wedding she does not actually like.  I would be VERY concerned about her controlling fiance.  I think in this situation, either she will have to speak up, or her fiance will have to explain to his father what kind of ceremony they really want.  Maybe invite her to lunch or dinner, say you want to shop for something so her fiance won’t come but it won’t seem like he is not invited and just ask her.  Make sure she knows it is okay, and will not be judged if it is not what she wants.  I think it’s great that you are so concerned and I hope everything works out.

You could flat out ask her.  Or, maybe you could give her your blessing to run away and elope or marry on a smaller scale privately before her FFIL’s big show because you sense her unhappiness.  Maybe she’s looking for an “out”.  You should find the time in your schedule to call or better yet visit your daughter and have a serious talk (without her FI).

Well I think you have already figured it out.  It sounds like she wants a small, intimate wedding and is instead going to end up with a bigger wedding than she wants.  So she is probably not super excited about planning this big wedding because it’s not really what she wants.  I think all you can do is be there to talk to her about it.
