So here are my thoughts! =)

My dad is a recovering alcoholic, 5 years we are so proud! BUT this is for us, and this is a symbol of our love and of our future! Its a time capsule, you could really put ANYTHING in there if you wanted! I felt the same way, even in the middle of excitedly telling my dad all about this little ceremony! It hit me! I felt like an ass and bummed all at once! It sucked! I say TALK ABOUT IT! Ask him how he would feel about being apart of it? He might surprise ya! (Or at least im hoping for ya!)

I wish you the best of luck and I hope you get to do it! Or maybe a revised edition!

Is your dad paying for 100% of your wedding?  This is the only reason to not do it.  It sounds like you do not have the same religious views as your father and you are not planning a “traditional” wedding ceremony; therefore, you are entitled to have the type of ceremony you want. If you dad is offended it is his own issue.

If your fathers opinion matters to you, then ask him. But really as it is, you already seem to be excluding him from some of the “norm” father wedding related things, so I’m guessing that it doesn’t?

@dynamic_duo: Ah. Yeah, I don’t think its a horrendous thing, I think its really just about you and your dynamic with your father.

@dynamic_duo: It’s not for your dad. It’s for you. If you are worried about what your dad will think, then do the ceremony in private. We are having a wine box ceremony also. I already have the box and glasses to go. Just have to find the right bottle of wine and get those letters written!
