- Wedding: July 2012
I’m really looking forward to my dad’s role at the ceremony.
I hate weddings with a passion – I never thought I could hate weddings more than I already did, then I got engaged and realised how much worse things are behind the scenes!
But…I love my dad and have a very good relationship with him. The only reasons I can think of against having a courthouse wedding or eloping (which, let’s face it, would be my first preference), is because I want my dad to have the chance to walk down the aisle with me and make a speech for me. Also, the father/daughter dance isn’t such a big thing here in Australia (not that I’ve noticed, anyway), but I’m really looking forward to that! I can’t wait to be able to “show him off” to the rest of my family, in-laws and friends – I love my dad and I’m proud of everything he’s done with his life and I think I would be the luckiest person in the world if I were even half as accomplished as he is.
