@MrsBeck:  In terms of the first issue with the bridal party sitting with significant others, perhaps you can appeal to his emotional side? Say something like, “You didn’t like it when I was at a head table and you were alone, so why would we do it to our friends?” This seems like a no-brainer to me (and to you, as well!) 

In terms of the father/daughter dance, that’s completely your decision and your dad’s decision, and if he doesn’t like it, he can plug his ears for four minutes. My future-mother-in-law picked a George Strait song for the mother/son first dance. I HATE the song (and my fiance doesn’t LOVE it, either), but this isn’t my decision to make. 

I understand the argument that “it’s not their wedding,” but when you invite someone to your wedding, you want them to be comfortable and have fun. If I could have, I would have played all 80s and 90s pop and R&B, but not everyone has my taste in music. He has to make concessions if he wants everyone to have a good time (and no one wants to have a wedding where people don’t have a good time, right???)

Yikes.  That’s a bad attitude to have.  It’s your day, sure, but once you invite guests, it’s not all about you anymore.  I hope he snaps out of this soon!

@MrsBeck:  Maybe you could explain to him that the ceremony is yours, but the reception is actually a thanks to your guests for coming, so they should be enjoying it otherwise you are being bad hosts?
