And HOPEFULLY your Dad will tell you to just forget the $150. Either way you come out on top and you haven't had to be confrontational with your Dad. Worth a shot?

Also...is there any other possible reason he may not want to travel as a group? You mentioned his girlfriend...perhaps they don't feel comfortable traveling with the rest of the group due to family dynamics? Seems a stretch, but worth considering.
I hope it all works out and you have a lovely wedding!

Even if it doesnt work out, I think you should still be increidibly greatful he is coming, so many brides would give anything for their fathers and families to even be able to attend the wedding.

If I'm being honest I'd say you are leaning toward unreasonable. I agree with Erika about being grateful that he is coming when so many people have fathers who don't want to go, are deceased, etc.
Courtney has a good idea and if your dad is game then go for it. If not, let him do his thing. Who cares how he gets there or what money it saves you, kwim? At the end of the day him being there is more important than a $500 credit

If that doesn't work I'd start recruiting real hard to find 2 more people to go!

Maybe your father doesn't want to travel with everyone. Travelling in large groups suck. It is his vacation too- if he wants to get there a night early, it's his choice. Just be happy that he will meet you down there.
