Advice for the Father of the Bride

Wedding planning can be a great time of bonding between mother and daughter. Don't forget about dad though; a wedding is a special time for him as well, as he prepares to give his daughter away. In honor of Father's Day this weekend, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches wanted to offer some advice for the Father of the Bride.

Show your support, but don't be afraid to set boundaries as well. Weddings can easily become super expensive if you don't start with a plan and a budget.

2. Write Your Speech Early. 
As the Father of the Bride, you will be expected to give a small speech at the reception. Don't wait until the last minute to c…
