First off, I am sorry that this will be lengthy. So I am new to the boards and have been lurking for about a month or so. My wedding is October of this year and I am having a really tough time with a plus one situation and am getting ready to start sending STDs and know this will be brought up, so I can't ignore this any longer. I know that this question has been asked many, many times, so I am very appreciative for you and your taking the time to answer for my individual circumstance.
Ok, so here is my dilemma. My dad is not walking me down the aisle. We had little to no relationship growing up except for when he wanted to "show me off" to various friends and girlfriends. He likes to pretend that he is the model father and that we are really close. My uncle will be giving me away as well as doing the father/daughter (in my case uncle/niece) dance. This has really POd my dad. I have accepted this and we have not spoken for about a month.
Here's the thing; I am hesitant to even invite him because I am worried about the scene he will make at the wedding. If I do decide to invite him, here is the next hiccup. Do I invite his current girlfriend? I know etiquette screams, "yes you do!", however, he is notorious for having a new girlfriend every month and I don't want to give him the excuse to show off in front of her. I can picture him making a huge show about coming up and giving me a hug and I wouldn't put it past him to try to cut in on my uncle's dance with me. His gf also lives about 2 hours away, so I am not sure if that would factor in or not. So, what do you think, Knotties? Feedback is welcome! Thanks again!
