The ultimate Father of the Bride to-do list

The ultimate Father of the Bride to-do list


Written by Katie Byrne


Share this with your dad, ladies! Here's everything he needs to know before and during your big day...

 

Before the wedding day, he should...

- Make himself available, as and when needed

- Start writing his speech, well in advance. Plus, have a lot of run-throughs, in front of the mirror and in front of other people, too

- Make an effort to get to know your partner as much as possible

- Let the bride and groom know if he is able (or wants!) to donate anything towards their wedding budget or planning

- Help with no-fuss jobs, such as chasing RSVPs, writing table-settings, hanging fairylights...

  

On your wedding day, your dad should...

- Make sure he can have a father-daughter moment with you before everything begins

- Be in charge of making sure you get to the venue in time

- Be prepared to escort the bride down the aisle (tissues at the ready!)

- Escort your mum down the aisle as the recessional plays

- Make sure all guests have a full glass of something bubbly as the reception begins

- Thank guests for coming at the start of his wedding speech...

- ...And also keep his speech funny, moving and ever-so-slightly-passive-aggressive

- Overlook any surprising stories the Best Man shares in his speech...

- Having a father-daughter dance with you, no matter how much he hates getting on the dancefloor!

- Dance with your mum once you and your partner have had your first dance
