Your father is probably expecting to be approached for his blessing and he has to balance the peace between your Mom and the upcoming nuptials. The best thing for your fiance to do is invite your father to a place where they can interact 1 on 1…going to lunch is a good example, where there are no distractions such as work or your Mom.

Your fiance has to be open and honest with your father…he can bring up the fact that y’all are concerned that your Mom will not approve.  This honesty is important since, once your married, all the families (his, yours, and the both of you) will be interacting for many years to come.  If you both talk to your father, it will be a sign of weakness on your fiance’s part…your father needs to feel that your fiance is a strong individual that will protect his daughter.

We have photographed many a bride and groom for the last 34 years and probably have seen it all…sadly many couples don’t make it.  Those that do, share a commonality which is the honesty between families and the strength within each of you towards your life as One.

God’s Blessings…
