Wedding Roles: The Father of the Bride

The father of the bride holds one of the most important roles in a wedding. There will be a series of emotional moments that will last forever in his heart and in his mind during the wedding.

His little girl is getting married and moving on to build her own family, thus ending the sweet life stages by his side. Although all eyes are on the newlyweds during the wedding, we can't forget that this day is also very important for the bride's father, marking the end of era and the beginning of a new one.

What are the most emotional moments that the father of the bride will experience on the wedding day?

Seeing the Bride for the First Time

That moment when a father sees his daughter for the first time, dressed as a bride, is touching. It means that there's no turning back, the day has arrived and that will bring mixed feelings: happiness for the new couple and, at the same time, nostalgia for the past lived closely with his daughter.

The Walk to the Altar

The father of the bride walking his daughter to the altar is still a touching tradition. It's an emotional moment for all. Formally marking the beginning of the celebration, as well as the path that the bride leaves behind to start a new one with the person waiting for her at the altar.

The Father/Daughter Dance

The father/daughter dance is one of the first dances that the bride has on her wedding day. It can be emotional and also fun. Of course, it's an unforgettable moment that each person will enjoy to the fullest.


The Farewell

At the end of the wedding, when father and daughter say goodbyes is a moment full of feelings. The long-awaite day is over and it's time to say goodbye. Hugs, well wishes and tears are to be expected.

Due to the excitement that involves your wedding it can be easy to focus only in planning it, but don't forget to give yourself a little more time and space to enjoy quality moments with your dad before the big day. It's a relationship and a time that both of you will carry in your hearts forever.
