How to Include the Father of the Bride

While the mother of the bride may help her daughter pick out her dress, or get ready on the big day, the father of the bride might not have as much to do leading up to the wedding. However, there are many great ways to include him in the wedding itself.


The most traditional is probably walking the bride down the aisle. Giving away his daughter, he can a big part of the wedding ceremony. If you want to include him in another way, consider asking him to do a reading at the ceremony, too.

Of course, he can also contribute to the bride’s attire. A tie pin or cuff links can be incorporated into the bridal accessories or even the bouquet.

There are also many things the father of the bride can do during the reception. He can offer a toast or speech, share a special dance, or even serenade his daughter.
