    That would annoy me. I don’t mind suggestions, but not booking it and not talking to you first. If it were me, I’d have your Fiance talk to Future Father-In-Law and say that you’d like to make the final decision on everything, especially the major things! If you end up having him photograph, that’s fine, but I would want to make that decision.

    @pmerr:  This. Hopefully he’s just so excited that he didn’t think anything of it, but make sure to take back the reins early on to avoid problems.

    Yes, I do! My dad has turned out to be the dadzilla. A TOTAL shock to all of us. I mean, he’s like this huge Viking type of man who works as a psychiatrist – level headed is his middle name! However, since we told my parents that we were getting married in Sweden (where they live), not Canada – he has become all wedding gung ho. Like arranging food tastings, dealing with the caterer, wanting me to send him spread sheets… It’s very sweet, and I love him for it (most of the time), but I can’t let go of the feeling that aliens have abducted my real father. 🙂

    From what you said, it seems a little early to add the “-zilla” for Dad. Maybe he’s had the idea for a long time so he’s attached to it. It hasn’t happened yet, and in a way he’s removed a major expense/stress for you.  Sounds like you’re still early enough in planning that if it is still important to you in a few months, maybe you can bring it up again.

    My Dad showed a brief spark of enthusiasm when he thought I might have it at his local Rugby Club (because he’d get it free, because he’s close friends with the Chairman), but when that idea got shot down, he lost all interest. Which is fair enough, Mum says he was the same with their own wedding!
