I got an email from my dad today.
One of his friends emailed him to let him know that they received our STD magnet and that they wouldn’t miss the wedding for the world and that they are so excited to meet the rest of our family. So my dad forwarded me the email just to let me know.
A couple nights ago, I was stressing about the rehearsal dinner because my dad is paying for the entire wedding and the rehearsal dinner. I was feeling guilty about the extra expense of the rehearsal dinner, but he reassured me that we are going to have the rehearsal dinner whether I like it or not. (He also adamantly denied my pleas of “PLEASE let’s just order pizza then!”).
He pretends that he can’t wait for the wedding to be over so I stop talking about it, but I think he’s actually pretty damn excited. The e-mail just confirmed my suspicions 🙂

@s2bmrscook That is super cute.

He’s pretty damn cute. Not gonna lie. Not to mention that he’s my “step”dad. I have his last name (I even had my birth certificate changed to list him as my “father”), but it still gets me every time he reinforces his “daddy” duties.

That sounds so sweet!! Excited Dad’s are the best. I know my Dad is excited but he isn’t the type to really show it lol.

Aww, that’s so cool when the dads are excited! And it’s so great that your stepdad isn’t shirking the father’s role at all!
My dad spent about an hour on the morning of our wedding welding our initials and some hearts onto a 44 gallon drum to light a fire in for our after party. We were looking for him for ages and he turned up with a big, proud smile on his face to show off his creation! Couldn’t really get angry at him for that… 🙂

You guys are making me teary about your happy daddy moments! My dad always amazes me when he reaches out to do something special for me. For instance, we hit our floral budget pretty quick with centerpieces and wedding party flowers, leaving practically nothing for the ceremony. So dad called my florist and asked her to add a few more hundred dollars worth of flowers to the ceremony so I could have what I wanted. Dads really are the best, and we are all lucky to be daddy’s little girls.

Aww! 🙂 It always feels extra special when he does something “fatherly” since I didn’t grow up with him. It’s like he goes out of his way to reinforce that he IS my dad <3
He’s seriously the cutest. He planned a surprise party for my mom’s 60th bday this past weekend, complete with my older sister coming here from PA .

That is so sweet!
I absolutely love your story! My parents are paying for our wedding but my poor dad keeps getting left behind and I really must try to include him more. I thought
my mum was passing on all the emails & info I was sending her (I’m in Melbourne, they’re in New Zealand) but when I rocked up in Auckland last March with my wedding folder and budget spreadsheet hoping for some sort of discussion about budget, he acted completely surprised that any of this was going on at all! Thoroughly confusing, not sure if mum just hadn’t passed on the gist of all the emails I’d been writing & phone calls we’d had… or if he’d listened and just forgotten (both are highly possible!)

Men do tend to forget things lol. I had my dad pick the font for our cake topper and he’s also in charge of all things paper related– He printed the labels for the STD envelopes and will be printing the invitiation suites as well!

- Wedding: October 2014 - UK
Haha, that’s lovely!
My Dad spent about a fortnight trying to convince me to have my reception at his local Rugby club (because we’d get the room hire free), but once that was nixed he’s just basically told me not to spend too much money, and he’ll turn up on the day, haha! Mum says he was just the same with their wedding, so I’m not taking it personally.
