Seriously I know I’ve been posting a lot but 4 weeks out, and my wedding is my BIGGEST nightmare at the moment!
So I was just back from the jewellers on a massive high!
I was feeling tip top, and then my Dad phones.
“look” he says “I don’t care how you do it, but you need to find a better way of telling people how to find the Church”
“Oh” I say “I have directions, sat-nav (GPS) directions, post code, little google map respresentation, little handdrawn map with comical directions between the church and venue, AND A WEDDING WEBSITE with an interactive Google map”
“Yeah, people won’t know how to get to the church from that”
“What?” I stutter “Why not I don’t understand?”
“Look, I don’t care what you think” My dearest father tells me “You need to phone your guets, email them and probably send new invite out”
“Well I may have told everyone you know that the church is somewhere completely different, and that your map and addresses are wrong”
Then HE HANGS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4 weeks out!!!!
Do you get the feeling he doesn’t what this wedding to happen?

Ignore what he said. If people can’t find your church with all that information, they are hopeless.

What the heck?! It seems to me you have provided sufficient resources for directions. Sorry to hear he did that.

Stay calm, you put the information on the site… you wount make people go to the wrong place. They would be stupid to listen to him, and if they do its their own fault. Make him pay for it or take care of it if he is that worried

If someones dad told me that about a wedding they were going to, i would double check all the maps etc and then if it still wasnt clear I would check with the bride or groom. I think if he DID tell people that, you would have people contacting you. I would ignore him and yes it sounds like he is trying to sabotage it :S

Oh boy. Your dad sounds like a gem.
I wouldn’t worry too much, people will figure it out! I would be prepared for a lot of phone calls, though.

Wow that’s crazy! Maybe get in touch with a few people just to confirm that they understand where it is. That should help put your mind at ease, or at least give you a better idea if you DO need to contact the group at large (which I doubt).
