My dad and I are really close, I’d say he’s one of my best friends. So after my Aunty and I had gotten home from dress shopping and took some really great pictures, I msged my dad (he lives in another state) and asked if he wanted to see pics of the dress or to be surprised? It was shockingly sweet when he replied “surprise please :)”. Which I’m pretty excited about, because I think that’s going to lead to a really special moment and some great photos. I was shocked because, like me, he doesn’t typically like “surprises”, he likes to know what’s going on etc..
So this got me thinking, did any other Bee’s Dads want to be surprised when they saw their sweet, little girls walking down the aisle?

I was trying to get an appointment at a boutique that was totally booked months in advance. I got an appointment due to a cancellation but it was a Wednesday at 1 pm. I obviously wasnt going to ask any of my friends to skip work and my mom was out of town so my dad volunteered to go with me so I wouldnt have to go alone. He hates shopping and even though I was kind of a daddys girl growing up I did not ever think he would be willing to go dress shopping. We had fun and we ended up buying a dress and he said he was glad he got to be there and see the dress!

I think your experience is so cute!
My Dad waited outside the shop in his car… which was a sincere act of dedication since we were in there for hours. I didn’t want him to see, and he didn’t either. I think he will be quite surprised when he sees me on the big day! I’m really excited to see him in a tux as well!

My parents came with me to pick up the dress, so my dad got to see it then. I also did a “First Look” with him on the wedding day. It was really sweet 🙂

My Dad and I are TERRIBLE at keeping secrets from each other. Seriously, he gives me my Christmas present in November because he gets so excited about it, so I just showed him a picture of my dress! I think surprising your dad with your dress will be amazing though!!

My dad has seen a few photos but he doesn’t want to come to any alterations or see it in person until the day.

My dad came with me, my stepmom and Maid/Matron of Honor dress shopping and I am glad he did because I really value his opinion. I have always been a daddy’s girl and when he saw me in the dress I felt the best in and told me how great and classy I looked I knew it was the one.

I was about to show my dad a picture on my phone, but he stopped me an insisted that it be a surprise on my wedding day. Which is funny, because my husband saw the picture the day I bought my dress lol. I thought it was sweet of my dad.

My dad hasn’t mentioned the dress at all lol. I don’t think he would want to see it before the day.

That’s very sweet!!
Lol I didn’t even think of this when I was picking my dress. I think I sent both of my parents a picture right away. (They had both come with me my first time dress shopping as well.) However, my dad ended up not seeing me in it in person until the day of the wedding, and we got some nice pictures of the moment, even though it was not intentional!

My dad was really happy and excited about my getting married, but the dress didn’t really matter to him.
