This week’s blog is all about honoring dad or the father figure in your life. Working in the wedding world, we make everything we do about family. We love to pay tribute to those individuals who helped raise us to be the best we can be!

Finding special moments throughout your wedding day to show your appreciation can seem forced, but with these gift and special moment ideas, we hope you will find your own meaningful way to say “thank you” for all that he has done to get you to this point.


First Look

We’ve all heard about the first look with your significant other, but we can’t help but get teary-eyed over having a first look with your father. Our most recent wedding gave us chills when we saw how emotional Melissa’s dad was seeing his little girl in her gown!

Tie Patch

Nothing says “your little girl” like a special note on the back of his tie, located close to his heart. It’s just that little touch that no one else may even know is there, but the two of you do.

Much like the tie, it’s a special and personal idea for honoring dad. The handkerchief allows you to write a little more and he can even use it to wipe away his happy tears throughout the day.

Lighthearted Gift

If you’re anything like me and my dad, you always keep each other laughing and smiling. Since I’m in the process of planning my own wedding, I had a good chuckle at this money clip.

Even a small piece of jewelry, like a tie clip, can make a meaningful statement. It will remind your dad each time he wears it how important he is to you! We love this engraved clip as a gift for the father of the groom. You can’t forget all the different types of father figures that will be a part of your special day!
