Popa, mazel tov on your unrelated simcha. Whether or not the story is true, I DO think the chosson’s father should be there. In the kallah’s house, the Shabbos before the wedding is all about Shabbos Kallah. There is absolutely no reason why a father should be home to spend Shabbos with a gazillion of his daughter’s friends in the house with her. But it certainly shows that he attaches chashivus to his future aidem’s simcha by being present, if possible, at the auf ruf. I wouldn’t travel out of the country for it, though, if I were the girl’s dad.
