If Dads were in charge of creating all our custom wedding gowns, we’d need a LOT more fabric! We’re thinking most dads would prefer a conservative look for their little girl’s big day – no cleavage or backless wedding dresses allowed!

From the first look at your wedding dress to the walk down the aisle to the father-daughter dance, there are so many unforgettable moments between a bride and her dad on the big day, and for good reason! He was the first guy you loved and your number one fan throughout life.

In honor of Father’s Day weekend, we asked Anomalie brides to share a little about their dads – grab a tissue (and don’t forget to call your dad this weekend)!

Who was more emotional on your wedding day – you or your dad?
Me! He was a rock.

What is your favorite wedding day memory with your dad?
The father-daughter dance to a waltz by a group that played at my parents wedding. And learning to waltz the day before!

If your dad had to create an Anomalie gown for you would you be excited or scared?
Excited. He’s very into tailoring and custom attire.

Angela + Dad, Andrew

“I felt so lucky to have a dad who beamed with pride and joy on my wedding day. He was in awe of my Anomalie veil and wedding gown, and I couldn’t have imagined a better look on the special day!”

What is your favorite wedding day memory with your dad?
Watching my dad tear up as he handed me off to my fiance at the end of the aisle. Small moments with huge significance!

What did your dad teach you about relationships?
He taught me to never settle for anything less than what I deserve, and to work hard to earn what I deserve.

If you had to guess, what type of Anomalie gown would he create for you?
My dad is an architect so I imagine it would be a structurally sound Cinderella gown!

Jocelyn + Dad, EP

“My dad is my greatest supporter and hero. He’s never failed to encourage me even when I’m down in the dumps. He’s always stood with me through my ugliest and told me I was beautiful through it all. I’m so thankful for a dad who has shown me what love is and built me up so I know my worth.”

What is your favorite wedding day memory with your dad?
When he first saw my dress and walking down the aisle with him. I’ve dreamt of that since I was a little girl.

What did your dad teach you about relationships?
To choose love, not be ruled by your emotions, and that i’s all in the little things. Even today after being married for 39 years, he would still hold my mom’s hand, takes her places, do little acts of services around the house, and support her in everything she chooses to do.

If you had to guess, what type of Anomalie gown would he create for you?
Ball gown with long sleeves.

What song was played during your Father-Daughter dance?
Tom Petty Wildflowers

What did your dad teach you about relationships?
Never give up on the ones you love most.

If your dad had to create an Anomalie gown for you would you be excited or scared?
A bit of both- it would be beautiful, but probably have running shorts and a sports bra so we could get in a workout before the ceremony!

Never settle for someone who doesn’t give you 100%
