A father is a girl’s first superhero. He taught her how to ride a bicycle and drive a car. He would carry her to her bed when she would fall asleep on the couch. Before saying goodnight, he would tell her a bedtime story. He would always remind her that she is the most beautiful person in his life and make her feel special. Girls, didn’t that all sound familiar to you? With him, you always feel so safe, as he has always been a rock solid support. And, now that you are getting married, it is your turn to do something to make him feel special. Here we have some Truly Adorable Ways For Brides To Honour Her Dad On Her Wedding.
1. Go on a daddy-daughter lunch or dinner
So far, you have been going on family lunches or dinners, which were mostly planned and organized by your dad. But, now is the time that you do this differently. This time, you take your father out to his favorite restaurant. Enjoy his favorite cuisine while talking about your feelings. You can ask your fiancé to join you as well. Your father would be really happy to see his little angel taking care of him even when she has another important man in her life now.
2. Take him to a meditation session
Organising an Indian wedding is a really hectic job. Since he is your dad, he must be stressing the most. After all, it is his little darling’s most important day. With all the fuss and flurry of activities, he surely must be acting indifferent to peace. So, book a meditation session to calm his nerves and yours too.
3. Have an emotional session
4. Dance with him
Everyone waits for the first dance of the couple. Before you dance with your groom, dance with your father. You do not necessarily have to choreograph it, just go with the flow. This will tell your father that he is and always will be your first love.
5. Walk down the aisle with him
Instead of making a grand entrance, ask your father to walk you down the aisle. Hold his hand tight before he gives you away. This is a very special way to say that you want him with you in every step that you take. And this way, you will also tell him how grateful you are to him for his support as you move forward to start a new life.
Wouldn’t a father-daughter photo shoot be a super-adorable thing to see? So, get clicked with him during all the pre-wedding as well as wedding ceremonies and collect the best ones. Apart from these photographs, also collect all your cherished childhood photos with your dad. Compile them all in a beautiful album and gift it to him. You can even create a slideshow of all of them and show them on a big screen on your wedding day to tell the world that you are still your daddy’s little princess!
7. Add a piece of his cloth to your dress
Take your father’s shirt and add a piece of it in your own wedding dress. Highlight it a bit. He will be extremely happy and really honored!
8. Colour co-ordinate your outfits
Most of the brides color co-ordinate their dresses with that of their groom’s outfits. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, matching your outfit with your dad’s clothes will give you and your father a completely different feeling.
Well, a daughter can never repay her father for everything that he has done for her or even explain to him how priceless he is to her! But, doing these things will apprise him how much you love him, and will make him feel truly special.
