Hi all! I’ve had several conversations with my Dad about the wedding and the first thing he ever brings up is that fact that he is not doing a speech. I always reply saying that I really want him to and that he should. But again he always refuses. It’s difficult because my Dad is the absolute worst for sarcasm, I think in my life I can count on one hand the amount of times he actually has responded to a question (literally any question) with a serious answer. We are now 4 months to go, and I’m now growing concerned that he really is not planning on making a speech. I’ve tried to ask and I’m just getting nowhere! He just doesn’t seem to realise how special this is to me. I lost my mum about 18 months ago, a few months before I got engaged, and so input from him I feel is extra important now as I know that my mum won’t be there. Am I being silly to try to keep explaining to him how special it would be to me, or should I just accept the fact that he’s not going to do a speech?
