Your dad is one of the most important people in your life – so naturally, you want him to be happy and a big part of your wedding day.
Of course, he will be happy by default, because it doesn’t happen every day that his little princess is getting married – but if you want to make him feel more connected and involved with Big Day, it wouldn’t hurt to assign him some tasks he can help with (and will love to do).
What are some of the most important duties for the father of the bride?
We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- Handling the budget. Traditionally, the parents of the bride are the ones hosting (and paying for) the wedding reception. Sure, things have changed and these days, the costs are usually split between both sides of parents and the couple itself – but even so, your dad may have a talent for numbers and budgets, so why not ask him to help you with this? He will most likely give in and indulge you with the most luxurious items for the Big Day – but even so, allowing him to take care of the budget will make him feel more involved in the wedding planning (and the wedding itself).
- Handling the transportation. You want to make sure guests make it to the wedding – and that they make it back to their hotels as well. Asking your dad to plan the logistics of guests’ transportation is a great way to get him involved. He will do such a great job – and it will help you so much, because the last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is how guests are getting back to their hotel!
- Giving a speech. This is quite traditional, but it will make your father feel so, so important and so involved in the wedding! Plus, the father of the bride speech is always emotional and unforgettable – so you sure don’t want to miss out on this magic!
