As the father of the groom, you are surely beaming with pride as you help your son and his wonderful spouse-to-be plan their wedding day. Everyone has something to contribute and a vital role to play on such a special day. But, you may be wondering what your role in all of this is.

We know that as the father of the groom, you will want to help as much as possible. Are you aware of what your duties are when it comes to the wedding planning process?

Here at Contagious Events, we believe that the father of the groom has an important role in his son’s wedding.

Here are some of the top duties that the father of the groom can take on:


The Tuxedos
A father/son shopping trip is a great way to spend time finding the perfect suit or tux. You can help your son find his tux and even pick it up from the shop after adjustments have been made.

The Rehearsal Dinner
The rehearsal dinner is a key part of the wedding preparation. This will help everyone get on the same page and know their roles when the big day comes. Hosting this is something that you can do and will greatly help the happy couple.

The Groom’s Mother
Your son’s mother is important to him. Walking her down the aisle is a great way to make sure that she is involved, and that your son’s mind is at ease. It will be a special moment for everyone.

The Toast
Toasts will be a part of your son’s wedding, and this is a great opportunity for you to wish the happy couple well, and even offer some kind words.

The Dance
Not only can you walk the mother of the groom down the aisle, but you can also share a dance with her. But, the dancing doesn’t stop there! Dance with your new daughter-in-law to welcome her to the family is also a wonderful idea.

Now that you have a better idea of what tasks will help make your son’s big day a little more special, you are ready to lend a hand. Don’t forget to reach out to us if you need any help!
