Not really.  I’ll be dancing with my dad at the reception, but the ceremony is mainly about the marriage of me and the mister.  Maybe you could have your celebrant say a few words about your parents and how they are importantt to you!

I think having the dads play a part in the unity ceremony is a good idea, if you plan on doing one – either lighting the tapers of the unity candle, or pouring the first layer of sand.

Miss Bruschetta’s suggestion, of having your officiant give a special mention or thank you for your dads, and maybe explain the flower gifting to your moms, is a great idea also.  Or perhaps finding non-religious readings that they could read?  There are a lot of options for readings, they don’t have to be religious.

If you decide to incorporate a wine ceremony, or something like that, the dads could come up, and one could present the glass, and one could pour the wine…

If you’re not having a ring bearer, maybe your dads could hold the wedding rings, and come up and present them during the ring vows?
