Many fathers can agree that letting their daughter go is no easy task, and add that to the price of weddings these days and it can make any dad go crazy. However, it is still their daughter's big day, and many fathers would love to create the wedding of their child's dream.
A few tips can go a long way for a father of the bride. First off, dads should make sure they set a budget right away. In 2011, the average cost for a wedding was around $27,000, but a ceremony and reception can be done in any budget. Fathers can point their child and her groom in the right direction by communicating upfront. Even though the wedding planning
is done by the couple, it is tradition for the bride's parents to pay for the event. However, recent statistics show that has changed, and many couples are paying for their own nuptials.
Also, always find common ground, even if it isn't easy. Molding two families together is no easy feat, so the father can try his best to make this happen smoothly.
