The Simplicity of Dad
Here’s what’s most important to dad, in no particular order:
- Is the fridge stocked?
- Is his lawn cut?
- Is his wife happy?
- Are his kids okay?
We can’t control the first 3, but with a wedding, he knows for a fact his son or daughter is doing just fine.
Is There a Difference Between Father of the Groom and Father of the Bride Gifts?
No, there doesn’t have to be a difference. The fathers of the bride and groom are already receiving the ultimate gift — their child's happiness. But if you want to go the extra mile, photos are the way to go.
Depending on the personality of the fathers, you could go a couple way with this. You could give the father of the bride a picture frame that has a photo of the groom when he was younger. You could do a series, so he can create some sort of life narrative of his daughter’s husband before the two met.
This is somewhat of a gag gift, so if you want to play the safe route, get the father of the bride a gift he’ll put on his desk at home forever. Take the bride’s favorite photo of her and her dad together and put it in a sturdy, personalized picture frame.
