I agree with the others.  Let your grandfather have the honor and let your dad sit in the back and pout like the child he’s acting like.  No offense meant!

If he’s gonna act like that, I don’t see where he deserves a place of honor amongst your family.

Just my opinion, though. 🙂  good luck and sorry you’re going through this!

I agree with @Ryna, he doesn’t deserve to be included in family honor if he’s acting like this.

Have your grandfather who has always been there for you and generously offered to share that honor with your dad without stipulations walk to you down the aisle.

It sounds like your grandfather had the bigger place in your life. If you want him to walk you down for sure, then you only have two other options: your father walks additionally or he doesn’t. You can’t make your father walk along with your grandfather, so it’s up to him. If he wants to be there for you, then he will. If he’s more interested in being “right”, then he won’t.

And if he doesn’t, then I agree, he doesn’t deserve it, and it’s his loss.

No they don’t have to go to the rehearsal and the way he’s acting I would have him be seated with all the other guests.

It sounds like he is trying to manipulate you so that you drop your grandfather and have your dad walk with you instead. I bet when he realized you are not willing to kick your grandfather out, he will give in.

I think when the family processes in, he could walk, but not with the girlfriend. He should either walk alone or with your Mom, if that wouldn’t be too weird.

PS- why would you feel like a bridezilla? You offered to your Dad the opportunity to walk with you when in reality he doesn’t deserve it. He is the one that is being a baby.
