June is not only a big wedding month, but it also contains the holiday where you honor the first man you ever loved... your dad! Father's Day falls on Sunday, June 18 this year, and because of that, our South Florida bridal salon has a few great ideas to share about how you can give Dad a little extra attention on your wedding day.
Make him stand out.
Angelus Bridal can set you up with our in-house tuxedo rental people so that you can pick out a special vest, tie, or style of suit that makes your father stand apart from the groomsmen in the wedding. Not too much so that he upstages the groom, but just enough to show everyone he is one-of-a-kind. Another way that you can do this is to give the bride's & groom's fathers special boutonnieres that are slightly different than the other men's.
Give him a sentimental gift.
You can thank your dad for helping you get to this special day in your life by finding a sentimental gift that not only reminds him of raising you, but will remind him in the future of this special day. This could be a framed photo of the two of you from your childhood that has an extra slot to add a photo of you both from the wedding day. You could also give him a special necktie to wear with a sweet saying from you sewn into the back of it.
Plan a pre-wedding daddy/daughter day.
Before you head off to your grown-up married life (even if you haven't lived at home for years,) spend one day doing activities and visiting places that are fun for you and your father. Start at your favorite restaurant, go to a movie, feed the ducks at the city park, cheer on his favorite team at the ball park... you get the idea! It will leave you both with wonderful memories to cherish.
Take "First Look" photos with Dad
The "First Look" for a bride and groom is a well-known wedding day photo, but you don't have to limit yourself to that one. Many brides also choose to have their photographer capture the first time their bridesmaids see them in their wedding dress, all dolled up. This picture can be a special one to take with parents, too. It will be tough for Dad not to shed a tear when he first sees you in your bridal gown, right before he walks you down the aisle. What a special memory to capture!
The father/daughter dance.
In addition to getting to walk the bride down the aisle, another special wedding moment for a father is the father/daughter dance. Ask your dad's opinion on the song he would like to dance to, or if you trust his musical style enough, give him free reign to pick the song himself. If he's not shy, you could even sneak in a choreographed surprise for the wedding guests.
With a little bit of thought and planning, you can find all kinds of ways to make the people that you love feel special on your wedding day. It's a wonderful way to thank them for being a part of your life.
