In honor of Father’s Day weekend I thought we should take a few minutes to recognize the men in our weddings. True, they don’t do much other than just show up, but be honest – isn’t that how we like it? And they do too! Amid the flurry of flowers, dresses, shoes, makeup, planning, stressing, crying….. they are happy just to walk us down the aisle, marry us, support their best friend, and then take part in the open bar.
Here are some ways you can show your appreciation. After all, “showing up” is very important!
(All items are for sale on Etsy by incredibly talented artists. Everyone over there is so great – unless you end up on Regretsy, and then you’re either not so good or a genius; it’s a fine line.)
