If you are the father of the bride, and your first daughter is about to get married, you may be wondering what will be required of you during the process. This article is designed to provide the father of the bride with a few tips and guidelines that can help to prepare the father of the bride for his various task and responsibilities. Throughout the whole process, it is helpful to understand what is traditionally required of the father of the bride, what your daughter's expectations are, and also what your expectations are. You probably should discuss these with your daughter not long after her engagement to preempt the planning process.

One of the most controversial subjects that will probably arise deals with the funding for the wedding recption and event. Traditionally, the father of the bride usually pays the bills for the reception and several other expenses. However, recently this is not always the case. Sometimes that father of the bride will pay for part of the festivities while additional funding will come from another source. Whatever the expectations and ideas the bride to be may have, it is important for them to be communicated and agreed upon.

Throughout the planning process, your advice may be requested on almost any subject, this could be the location of the reception, the caterer, the music, the food, etc. Moreover, you may be asked to help the groom's family locate a rehearsal dinner location if they are not from the area. Traditionally, the father of the bride makes a toast to the groom at the rehearsal dinner and welcomes him into the family. You may also need to pick up a lot of out of town guests from the airport.

During the ceremony, the father of the bride will typically escort her down the isle and stand by her as she is given away. The father of the bride will also stand in the receiving line with his daughter and greet guests. The father of the bride should also be avaialble to encourage your daughter and to provide her with moral support. At the reception hall, the father of the bride should make a brief speech welcoming the guests and encourage them to have a good time. During the reception, father of the bride should dance during the special dances and also dance with the bride during the special father daughter dance. Finally, the father of the bride typically monitors the progress of the reception behind the scenes. Once it is over, the father of the bride will also need to help clean up and take care of anything that has been left undone.
