Father Knows Best...

Being the elder statesman of the wedding party isn’t easy. You mustn't trip up as you walk the bride down the aisle, try not to tread on delicate white shoes during the father/daughter dance, deliver that speech. In fact there are a number of important factors to take into consideration, so here’s a quick look at some of the most important parts of the father of the bride's role.

Dad dancing, it's so much a form of rhythmic movement, more of an affliction when you're required to move your limbs with as little coordination as possible. Like delivering a brilliant speech, dad dancing isn't just your right it is your moral duty!

Memory Loss Memory Loss

It's a fast track to a night on the couch.


Old Skool Old Skool

That's what the kids of today call "old timers" so show them how to really party Dig out those CD's your kids love to hate and make sure the DJ plays a few "classic" tracks during the reception. You can then sit back with a smug expression as the dancefloor fills up as you serve your kids a big helping of “I told you so”.


Decorating Decorating

Have a bag of shaving foam, streamers, toothpaste and anything that comes to mind ready to decorate the newly-weds car in case the groomsmen and bridesmaids forget. Then grab the younger members of the wedding party to help you give the car a full wedding makeover before the happy couple depart.
