Your her MoH 2nd but your her Boyfriend or Best Friend 1st and foremost. If you were already scheduled  to go to see to host the parties, I say go anyway and just be there for her. When she’s not with her Father or SO she should be with you. You should plan little inexpensive things for you two to do to A.) Take her mind off her Dad being in a hospice and B.) Take her mind off of her wedding in general (unless of course thats what she wants.)

I say just be as helpful and encourging as possible as you can in a time like this. Be the type of friend you would want if it were you in this situation…

I agree with PP still go and just be for her she is going to need you more now! Just be there for her to talk to and a`shoulder to cry on.

Just call her and see what she wants–if she wants you to go, then do it, if not, no problem.

@MamaMegs721: I would go anyway just so taht you are there. your presence alone and the fact that you came to support her in any way you can will mean worlds to her im sure. Even if you only end up with some alone time while there. If something does happen or if she wants to do what other pp’s have said such as do somethings taht arent wedding related or do something to take her mind off of the situation you will be there. And god forbid something really bad happens you will be close by. the gesture alone will mean so much though IMO. Let her know though that you came out of support and that if what she needs is time with her dad alone than you understand and will be ok on your own for the weekend but you want her to knwo you are there for whatever it is she may need.
