Top 4 Wedding Tips for Dad

Wedding Tips For Dad and How He Can Be Helpful in the Wedding Planning Process

Be Financially Involved (If Needed)

Is your dad contributing to your wedding? It was once traditional for the father of the bride to pay for the wedding. Thankfully, we’ve moved on from those days but if you dad is contributing to your wedding, have the conversation with him to establish budget and boundaries.

Walk Her Down the Aisle

One of the father of the bride’s main roles is to walk her down the aisle (get your tissues ready). But you can also ask dad to play other special roles in the ceremony, whether it’s lighting a candle, sharing a reading or being an usher at the beginning and end.

Father of the Bride Speech

The couple’s fathers usually each make at least one toast over the course of the wedding festivities. Whether it’s the rehearsal dinner or the wedding (or sometimes both) it’s customary for the dads to say a few words. Not sure what to say? Rather than rambling, it’s always best to stick to the basics. Thank everyone for being there, tell everyone how happy and proud you’re feeling at that moment, then raise your glass to the happy couple. 

Hit Dance Floor

Dad shouldn’t limit himself to just dancing during the father-daughter dance! Make sure to work with your wedding DJ to play songs your dad will love to guarantee pops is dad is dancing with you, your mom or cutting loose with friends and family.
