Let’s hear it for the dads

Thank you so much for sharing your Father of the Bride pictures and stories with us this Father’s Day!

We know that if your father walks you down the aisle, it’s a moment you both treasure forever…

Especially if, as one of our brides fondly told us, he offers to sell you for a tenner at the alter.

When we asked for Father of the Bride stories, several of our brides recalled pep talks to get them down the aisle…

“He was saying ‘Come on girl, deep breath, get a grip!’  Just what I’d expect from my dad!”

But for some brides, we know these memories are tied up with other emotions too.

“My dad had been ill for a while, but he still threw himself into walking me down the aisle,” said one Elite bride.

Others told us how it was a chance to make lasting memories with loved ones who are sadly no longer here, or that their dads supported them through some pretty rough times to make sure they got to enjoy their wedding day.

One thing’s for sure – so many brides couldn’t wait to share stories of their wonderful dads and stepdads, and we’re so glad these men are in your lives.

“My dad is simply the best,” said one bride.  “Through everything I’ve ever done in my life, he’s never judged – just stood by me and supported me.  I love him.”

As always, we enjoyed reading every single anecdote about your weddings and your wonderful dads, and seeing more of your beautiful photos.

We love to see and hear your wedding memories all year round, so please continue to share them with us!  Message us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @EliteBridalUK
