"D" - HER DADDY GAVE HER AWAY
In traditional Southern weddings, the Father of the Bride received much more limelight than the mother of the Bride. The Father walked his Daughter down the aisle (an usher escorted the mother) and stood at the alter before He "gave Her away" (the mother was already seated). He gave a toast at the reception (the mother listened) before He and the Bride shared the first dance (the mother danced later).
