I would say, being excluded from the wedding would bother me a bit. Because, after all, she is my own daughter. Howsoever, I liberal I am, this is something would have been of momentous and huge meaning to me. Depending on the state of my relationship with her, I would ask her why she did not inform me of the wedding..I need to know and understand. Having said that, much though it would pain me, I would also need to accept her independence and her choice..Though i would love tha my children love me always, I would not want it to be an obligation and a duty..
In so far as race is concerned, It is an issue because there would be the difference in cultures which might worry me especially religious differences.. Having said that, I guess this is a matter of adjustment and would be challenging for the couple concerned. I would hope to play a supportive role and be there for my daughter, no matter what happens in life.
