Father of the Bride Wedding Advice -- With 2.3 million couples getting married in the United States in 2006, there is a similarly large number of fathers of the bride who are about to shell out over $20,000 for their daughters’ one-day wedding event. This is the blog (http://blog.WeddingGuidance.com) that is designed to help the father of the bride give away his daughter without taking out a second mortgage. It is written by a guy, Ken York, for guys.
“I am about to spend more money on my daughter’s wedding than I did buying my first house and first new car combined and 90 percent of the advice I’ve found for fathers of the bride is to be supportive and write checks,” said York.
The concept behind the blog is to chronicle the experiences that Ken York is going through while helping to plan and pay for his daughter’s wedding in October 2006. “As I go through this process people are opening up to me telling about their positive and negative experiences,” said York. “I intend to both post this information along with my research on the blog and in an E-book that I am writing.”
The average wedding today costs $26,800 according to the Wedding Report, yet there is a distinct lack of information oriented towards the father of the bride. From the time the planned wedding is announced, daughters and wives are thinking of how wonderful the day will be and immediately start to mentally review every wedding article, magazine, book, television show and conversation that they have ever had concerning weddings. The father of the bride, on the other hand, probably only has a vague memory of his own wedding day. Face it, most grooms aren’t thinking of the table settings or caterer; they have other things on their minds.
The father of the bride is generally more pragmatic about his role: “What’s it going to cost and how do I keep from making a horse’s ass out of myself on my daughter’s wedding day?”
Tune in to Ken York’s advice for the father of the bride as he humorously develops his own strategy for dealing with his daughter’s wedding.
