I never really talked to my dad about the wedding much either.  Not really because he didn’t want to hear about it, but most things wedding affiliated (flowers, linens, dresses) aren’t really “man topics”.

Hmmm. Well, I don’t know if it’s normal, but my dad is very similar. Though granted, it’s more that my fiance can’t stand my dad; he’s not exactly a model father and my fiance spent many years showing me that not all marriages work (or fail to do so) like my parents’.

Your dad is probably having a hard time coming to terms with losing his little girl. It’s probably not that he isn’t interested, he just doesn’t know how to deal wth the whole situation.

When it gets closer to the wedding, see if you can involve him with things like the father/daughter dance or walking you down the aisle, if those are things you’re interested in. He might be glad to be involved in ways that show him how important he is to you.

If nothing else, know that you are choosing a new life for yourself, and not everyone will be happy for you. Life is way too short to spend trying to please everyone else, so follow your heart and hopefully he will come around. If not, don’t dwell on it. Surround yourself with people who will support you and you’ll find that your life is a lot happier for it.

And if he doesn’t want to hear about wedding details… share them here! It’s like a drug, I swear 🙂

I haven’t really spoken to either of my parents about our wedding – except to tell them the date & the venue. I know they’ll enjoy the party but the actual planning isn’t really their deal.

If you want him to be involved have a conversation with him and tell him it’s important to you!
