The most famous "father of the bride" I know
So after looking through tonnes of "etiquette" books I found that the Father of the Bride has very few jobs.... unfortunately for him one of his jobs traditionally is the most expensive...
1. Host the wedding- Now a days this doesn't necessarily mean paying for the everything, it is up to the bride, groom and parents to come up with their budget and whose paying for what
2. To walk his daughter down the aisle & "give" his daughter away to her husband- this stands for a father passing on the responsibility for his daughter onto her new husband.
3. To give the first speech of the reception
4. To cut in on the first dance of the bride and groom to dance with his daughter
The father of the bride I love most.....
