When dad finds out that his daughter is getting hitched, it’s a range of emotions. Think Steve Martin in ‘Father of the Bride’. Whether it was a surprise engagement, or a long time coming, it’s an exciting time for everyone.
From a big traditional event to a small beachside ceremony, a wedding is an important rite of passage for the bride, groom and both their families. One special relationship that takes a giant step into the next chapter is the father and daughter relationship – daddy’s little girl is getting married.
With all that goes on when planning a wedding, there are some traditions that are close to the heart. We’ve put together a list of dads and daughters wedding etiquette, so this special bond can still be cherished from this day forward.

Dads help us with so many things in our lives. From teaching us to catch a ball and learning to ride a bike when we’re young, to guiding us through the ups and downs of life and helping to shape us into the person we become.
It’s not often we stop and say thank you to dad for everything he has done for us. Father’s Day gives us that opportunity.
So this year, harness your sense of adventure and give dad something truly memorable by personalising his Father’s Day experience to show him just how much he means to you. It can be your way of saying ‘Thanks Dad – for everything!’
Better than a pair of socks or a last-minute box of chocolates from the Servo, do something with dad this Father’s Day. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, expensive or too much trouble, but spending quality time with
Dads. They come in all shapes and all sizes. And they’re notorious for being the most difficult person in the family to buy for.
If yours is anything like ours he pulls out the old ‘there’s nothing I need, just a hug will be fine’ line every time a gift is in order. But remember that one time you actually did call his bluff and forgot the present? You’re still living it down, aren’t you?
The truth is, the menfolk in our lives are good eggs. And they deserve to know just how much we appreciate them, beyond laughing at his dad jokes that is.
So, here’s six gift ideas to put a smile on the dial of the legend who says he’s got it all. Socks, underwear and neck ties need not apply.

Leaving a high-flying career in corporate banking to become Joint Managing Director of a personalised wedding favours and special occasion online store is an unusual choice for most 30-something dads. But this is exactly what MD Matthew Mosse-Robinson did back in 2013. And he's never looked back. Joining forces with sister-in-law and PF Founder Melissa Wilkinson, together they have transformed the company from a backyard operation into a multimillion dollar international enterprise, dispatching 3000 orders across Australasia and the US every month.
