my dad and i, out relationship is sort of a tough love thing until recently. he didnt like the fact that i was moving out and we've became closer after that. i've always been scared to tell him things because he's such a hardass. so im very scared to tell him that im getting married soon. i have no idea how but all i know is that i have to tell him soon. i wanted my fiance to tell him on his own but i know i should be there too. what do i do? i need help asap. please let me know

Sit down with him and just tell him.

I would think that a person who is old enough to set up housekeeping with a man and is considering marrying should be able to sit down with their parent and tell them their plans.

Just sit him down and tell him you are getting married.

Since we are on the subject of telling "Dad,"

My dad and I did not have much contact while I was growing up and I basically had my maternal grandfather as my father figure until the age of 16. Since then my dad and I have kept in contact over the past 10 years, and now Im getting married...so my dilemma is this:

I've already asked my grandfather to walk me down the aisle since I have been telling him he would since I was little, BUT would it be inappropriate to have my dad on my other arm?
Do I invite my dad and his wife and my 1/2 sibs and not say anything at all about it?
I guess Im also worried about what my Gramps might think or feel.....sigh.

I just think I will feel extremely weird, maybe even guilty, if I dont ask him and then look back at him sitting in the crowd....

Ok ladies, let er rip....Thanks =)
