So, we're a few weeks out and seems like I have more and more questions about what the right thing to do is.
Here's the background; my Dad and I did not have the greatest relationship growing up. He was gone a lot, when he was home he was drinking a lot. He went to rehab a few years ago, and since then things have been a bit better between us. He is generously paying for the wedding and has been a real help on a lot planning things.
So my dilemma is we are doing a father-daughter dance (even though I don't love the idea), and all the songs he's picked have been super sappy, sentimental, daddy's little girl/angel/princess, giving my precious daughter away stuff. Makes me cringe. Also, feels really inauthentic to me. We just don't have that kind of relationship, and it feels super fake to me. He doesn't like any of my "less traditional" suggestions, and really wants one of his picks. So, do I suck it up and dance to what he wants? He is paying so definitely gets a say, but how much? I wasn't jazzed about a dance in the first place and the idea of one of these makes me cringe. Any suggestions?
