We Dare You Not to Cry Watching These Magical Father-Daughter Moments from Real Weddings

Wedding Photography

You're not the only one who's bound to be fighting back the tears on your wedding day. No, we're not talking about your groom (but yes, he has reason to cry, too!). We're talking about the man who's been there from the start — your dear old dad. He's probably been both dreaming of and dreading this day ever since that special sparkler was slipped on your finger (or perhaps even when you were first born!) and now it's finally here: The walk down the aisle, the father-daughter dance, waving goodbye to you and your new hubby as your drive off into the sunset... These monumental milestones are bound to stir up a bevy of emotions — love, pride, and maybe even a little sadness — and are often times our favorite wedding day moments. So, in celebration of Father's Day, we decided to capture these heartbreakingly beautiful moments in out latest BRIDES video. Time to grab the tissues — you'll need 'em...

If you hadn't already called your dad to wish him a Happy Father's Day, this video will have you reaching for the phone in three... two... one... In fact, we bet you'll be forwarding it to your pops (he's computer savvy, right?) so he can watch for himself and prepare for that big, emotional day ahead of both of you.

These real wedding moments highlight just what makes the relationship between a bride and her dad so incredibly special. From the bride crying at seeing her pops to the father-of-the-bride choking back tears at his first peek of his little girl in a wedding dress, they're sure to bring a tear to your eye. Or two... Or three... And if you're blubbering already, just imagine how poignant your own wedding day is ought to be! Better pack the waterproof mascara.

Happy Father's Day to all of the fathers-of-the-bride out there! You do more than just walk her down the aisle. You've been preparing her for this day since you felt held her in your arms.
