George Banks must accept the reality of what his daughter's ascension from daughter to wife, and now, to mother means when placed into perspective against his own stage of life. As the comfortable family unit starts to unravel in his mind, a rapid progression into mid-life crisis is in his future. His journey to regain his youth acts as a catalyst for a kind of "rebirth" of his attitude on life when he and his wife, Nina, find how their lives are about to change as well after she unexpectedly becomes pregnant. He must now contend not only with his new status as a grandfather, but to also begin again as a new parent just as he was preparing for retirement and an empty nest for him and Nina.

In 1996, Meyers confirmed that Shyer and her were planning a third installment in the Father of the Bride series, which would "have their characters confronting serious problems in their relationship – but ending up with a stronger bond than ever". At this time, a sequel failed to materialize however. In 2014, rumors about a gay marriage themed Father of the Bride 3, again directed by Shyer, emerged, which was said to focus on a now 29-year-old Matty Banks after he announces his engagement to the son of a US Navy Seal. Steve Martin quelled the rumors with a tweet on Twitter in which he confirmed that he had neither seen a script nor been offered the role.
