your father might just be a bit emotional because his baby girl is getting married, dads show emotion in funny ways sometimes. i’m pretty sure that no matter who shows up at your wedding you dad will be 100% focused on you, if you want to give your sister a plus one then by all means do – i just know everything will work out just fine <3

@Cheekyduck:  Ugh that’s so frustrating. If I was you I would let him come, and just tune out the ranting name calling etc. I’ve gotten used to just zoning out and going to “brideland”

Is he frequently a little crazy? It’s four days out, WAY too late for your sister’s Boyfriend or Best Friend to cancel his ticket!

Good news! It’s your wedding and your house. You can do whatever you want. I’m sorry though, what a pain. It’s really hard when our parents act like children, mine totally do this sometimes do. I really feel for both you and your sister in this. You really do just have to treat it like a child’s temper tantrum and ignore it/maintain the boundaries. 

*hugs* Good luck!

Huh? I’m confused… 4 days to the wedding and you invited him and expect that he’ll be able to fly from America to Austrailia with 4 days notice?

Then let him  make an ass of himself over something so stupid.   It’s your wedding.

@Cheekyduck:  Eh TBH I would do it anyway. I think he needs a wake up call. He should be ashamed of himself for even putting you in the position of having to choose!

Omg, he actually calls you selfish because of that?

Well it is your wedding and you have every right to invite anyone you want.

Don’t let this negativity get under your skin, if you can’t deal with your father right know, just ask a family member to try and calm things out.

Let him come anyway.

You’re dad’s just stressed from all the pressure, and his little girl is getting married in 4 days! He snapped.

@Cheekyduck:  Oh my goodness, that’s crazy!! Let the poor guy come still. Your dad can deal with it. I’m sure he wouldn’t miss your wedding over this.

@Cheekyduck:  What did you decide to do? I think the gesture on behalf of her boyfriend (booking flights and flying over with 4 days notice) is just so beautiul and sweet.
