My dad is a pastor too!! He would cry through the whole thing, so it was never a consideration for my sister or me. I do want him to have a day as father of the bride. I think it’s a bigger honor 🙂

Have you talked to your dad about it?

My dad is not a pastor, but I know I would feel the same way.  FI wants his dad to do our photography but I said no.  Not because I thought he wasn’t good enough, but because I just wanted him to be FOG.  I want him to relax, have a good time and enjoy watching his son get married.  Thats how I feel about all immediate family members, I don’t want to give them stressful jobs, I just want them to have a good time.

Mr. Dragon’s dad is officiating for us. He really wanted to and we didn’t have any reason to say no so that’s how it is! The only thing I’m worried about is him ad libbing something off the wall. 🙂

I forgot to say — I’d check in with your dad and get his thoughts before making any decisions.

Talk to your Dad- if you tell him that your dream of the wedding day is to have him walk down the aisle, etc.- hopefully he shouldn’t be hurt. He could do a reading or the blessing before the meal as well.

I would talk to your dad… My dad’s a pastor. We had another pastor do the beginning of the ceremony. This way, my dad could walk me down the aisle. Then, my dad did the rest. It was SO special to us! I’ve always dreamed of my dad playing both roles at my wedding because he really is my dad and my pastor 🙂
