Is it acceptable to ask a father for his daughter's hand in marriage?


According to event planner Nina Callaway for, asking for parental permission prior to getting married is a nice gesture if the request is worded with care. While some traditional families accept the terminology that comes with asking permission, more modern families may appreciate being asked for a blessing instead.

Callaway advises couples that both parents should be asked for the blessing rather than the father alone. When asking for the blessing from divorced parents, while it is best to approach the parent with the closest relationship to the bride, asking the more approachable parent first is also acceptable as long as both parents are asked.
