Want to walk self down the aisle.....FOB being difficult....

I made the decision to walk myself down the aisle.  My dad is really hurt by this.  My parents are still married and my dad has been around my whole life.  My decision to walk myself down the aisle stemmed from the fact that
1. My fiance and I are paying for our wedding
2. My dad and I have never been close, it wouldn't feel comfortable and would feel forced for him to walk me down the aisle 
3. My dad always puts himself first, I can't remember the last time my dad came to Thanksgiving or Christmas or a family function for that matter-he is always "busy" doing his own thing.

My fiance's dad is wearing a tux to the wedding and my uncle, who I am very close with is wearing a tux also (I consider him more of a father to me than my own father).  My dad is refusing to wear a tux and might not show up because I won't allow him to walk me down the aisle.  Any thoughts?  Am I in the wrong?
