The Perfect Setting For Your Perfect Day

What Are Some Tasks the Father of the Bride Can Help with?

Your dad is one of the most precious people in your life – and it makes all the sense in the world that you want him to feel really amazing on the Big Day.

How do you do that?

By making him feel included, of course!

Your dad can help with so many parts of the wedding that it would be a real pity not to include him in at least some of the tasks.

What are the ones your father can do best?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • The financials. Traditionally, the mother and father of the bride are in charge with planning and paying for both the wedding reception and the wedding breakfast. Sure, these days, the costs are split between all parents and the couple (and very frequently covered 100% by the couple too). But even if your dad isn’t paying for the wedding, allowing him to handle the budget can help you steer clear of all the stress that comes with it. Plus, he will be more than happy to play such an important role in the whole wedding planning process!
  • The logistics. Hotel rooms, transportation, which guests comes and leaves when – your dad sure has a mind for logistics and organization. So why not make him feel really included in the planning process, while taking this burden off your chest too? You don’t want to worry about guest transportation on the Big Day – but your dad will happily do this for you!
  • The speech. This is not a wedding planning task per se, but a part your dad will most likely LOVE to play in the wedding. Giving your father a chance to say some words at the beginning of the wedding reception will surely bring tears to your eyes (and to your guests’ eyes too). From the moment he finds out he will give a speech to the moment it actually happens, your dad will be SO excited to do this – and he will definitely pull off a truly amazing moment!
