Picture this - there is a house that’s brimming with happiness and excitement. The mood is toned at romance and celebration set at maximum. Love is in the air, everywhere around. There are butterflies too, but you can’t see them. The ambiance is mushy and romantic with string lights giving out the softest glow. There’s light romantic music playing in the background. There is a wedding happening here today. The bride looks drop-dead gorgeous in a white wedding dress and the groom looks dashing in a crisp white shirt and contrasting pants. The bride and groom have waited for this moment their whole lives and they wouldn’t let the pandemic take it away from them. Their little doggo is dressed adorably as a ring bearer. The bride and the groom say their wedding vows, have their first kiss as newlyweds, and move on to their first dance soon after. They are cheered on by their friends and family who join them virtually or in person. A set tripod makes sure all their precious wedding moments are captured and their wedding photography is flawless. When it’s time to raise a toast, all the crystal Champagne Flutes clink together! And maybe they all wear vibrant garlands, reminiscent about their original wedding plans for a destination wedding in Hawaii! The wedding cake looks heavenly with rustic wooden cake toppers.

‘A father lifts her daughter up to the sky and shows her the moon.’ A father-daughter relationship is precious to the core and absolutely like none other. He has been there for you and with you since you stepped into this world. Therefore, a wedding is an emotional time for this treasured relationship. Not only is a father happiest to see his little daughter (reminds of ‘Father of the Bride’) getting married to the love of her life but also is the saddest as he would have to share the role of the most important man in his daughter’s life. While he adores how you can’t help smiling on your wedding day, he is scared if anyone else would be able to love you as much! While he knows that he is the biggest mountain that someone would have to get through before hurting you ever, he is just as fragile, hiding his tears while walking you down the aisle. And while toasts would convey pretty much all you want to say or hear, it still can never be enough (aww-moment alert!) Sigh! On occasions like weddings, where the emotions are running high, it’s important to make your father feel loved and even better to gift him a keepsake that whispers all the stories and emotions of your precious bond with him. Here is a compilation of various gifts that are perfect for your dad on your wedding day. From the reminiscence of childhood in customized cufflinks to embroidered handkerchiefs and patched ties, all these tokens of love convey that you’ll always be his little girl. Take a look but make sure you control those tears of love!
