Father of the Bride

Your little girl is tying the knot, and we’re here to lend a helping hand

That time has come – your daughter is getting married and you’re the proud father of the bride. What do you need to do to make sure that life from now until the big day is as smooth as possible?

Traditionally, the only requirement of the father of the bride was to have deep pockets and be excellent at writing cheques. Nowadays, the modern man needs to have the diplomatic skills of a UN ambassador, the lightening reactions of a Wimbledon tennis player and the philosophic capabilities of Socrates. And, of course, you’ll be making that all-important speech. When it comes to the cash though, you might not need to part with all your pennies as many couples these days contribute financially to their own wedding.
