Weddings are a special time for the happy bride and groom. Yet, it’s not always easy for the father of the bride. Flashbacks of her life are going through his mind at the wedding even as he is saying that he gives her to “this man.”
On our wedding day, which was also my father-in-law’s 50th birthday, Heather sang “I’ll Always Be Your Baby” (by Natalie Grant) to her father at our wedding reception. It’s a memory that our family cherishes – linking her family of origin to the new family she was forming with me.
Take some time to enjoy the song and you may even consider honoring the father of the bride in your own wedding someday.
