Of all the key players you might need the most Father of the Groom Advice. Because everyone has such huge roles. But does the Father of Groom have that much to do? Let’s see what’s high profile, and what’s not about your Dad at your wedding.
Father of the Groom Advice
He’s There For You
First thing, your dad is there to be there for you. your job is to support your son. He will have guided you through some of the engagement process as only a father can. He’s also there to enjoy the moment with your mom.
Who Pays For What?
Yes, right. The bride’s parents traditionally are paying for a lot of the wedding. Although theses days those traditional have morphed. More couples are paying for parts of the wedding. And other families will work together.
Remember if people are paying for something they might want some input.
Bring On The Family
The groom will be up front about his side of the family invitation list. But the parents of the groom will have helpful input on who’s who when it comes to family invites. They can also be the ones to follow up on the non-responses.
What To Wear
Dad’s will typically get their attire directions from the bride & groom. It will be something that signifies who they are in the wedding party. And set them apart from the groomsmen.
Who’s The Best Man
Well you know the groom will choose someone o to be the best man. But we all know the real top dogs are the Dad’s. So honor them as much as you can.
Who’s In The Pictures
This falls back to the invite list. Dad’s will know who’s up for the next photo when their names are called. This usually takes place after or before the ceremony.
Greeting The Guests
The adults play a big part in making the rest of the guests feel comfortable. So allow Dad to act as a host for as many people as would be appropriate. I’ve even seen Dads go out of their way to make the brides family a new friend.
