If you are ready to get married now, have all your ducks in a row financially and emotionally are ready to get married, and it is just a matter of time passing, then you could just move it up and get married when you are sure Dad will be ok.
If things are still unsure, putting a wedding on fast forward isn’t too good. I have said this before, I knew a couple who got married quickly so her dying mother could be there, and it was a disaster.
Have Dad be there only for a marriage that is going to last, not one where you divorce in 2 years.

UPDATE: Dad made it through surgery and while they were in there the docs found something they were able to fix! My dad won’t be able to run or anything but they think he’ll be able to walk in a few months! He is still crazy weak and wasn’t able to feel from the waist down for hours after the surgery but once they got the blood drained from around his spinal cord he was able to move his toes!
I’m happy dancing all over the place now.

ONE MILLION TIMES YES!!
I lost my dad 4 weeks ago. I get married in 5 weeks.
I’m so heartbroken he won’t be there. You can’t even imagine what it’s been like..
People actually asked me who was going to walk me down the aisle at the wake..
I’m kicking myself for not booking an early Spring wedding like we had originally planned. Because then my Dad would have been there. But we wanted to wait for nicer weather..

anthonyswife : Try to be kind to yourself. I lost my father months before our wedding and I too wished we did it earlier. My mom walked me down…

Oh I am so sorry , your poor dad and all of you. . But you have nothing to reproach yourself for, so don’t muddy your grief with guilt. He’d have hated you to feel guilty over him wouldn’t he ?
