Sometimes it can be hard to pick one Father-Daughter Dance song for you wedding that really encompasses how you and your dad feel about each other. He’s your hero. You’re his little girl. You both have so many memories of you growing up. The first time you rode a bike on your own. The first time you planted your little feet and wouldn’t back down in an argument against him. The first time you realized that there was a possibility that he may just know what he’s talking about. The first time he realized that you knew what you were talking about. And now you’re all grown up and getting married. There are a lot of emotions and memories that will be floating around your minds in the space of that one song.
When thinking about the song you want to use for the Father-Daughter Dance, a great place to start is to do a web search. There are a lot of websites that you can go to that have a list of the most popular songs for the Father-Daughter Dance. Just reading through the titles can bring tears to your eyes. The most popular songs for this special dance are so popular for a very good reason. Every one of them encompass the feelings of love, pride and admiration that a father and daughter feel for one another. Any of these songs are always a wonderful choice.
If sentimentality isn’t something you and your dad are comfortable with, or you just don’t think you’d be able to handle such deep emotions one more time on your wedding day without bursting into tears, think about doing something different. Some fathers and daughters choose to do something other than a classic slow dance for their Father-Daughter Dance. Think back over the years. Is there a song that your dad really loves, or a song that represents something you and your dad both really enjoy? If you and your dad share a love of the ocean or are avid surfers, maybe a Father-Daughter Dance to an old 1960′s surf song. Maybe there’s a song from that school play back in high school that he helped you practice for hours? Or maybe he’s an Elvis man. There are a lot of different songs and styles of music that can be just as touching and sentimental as a classic Father-Daughter Dance song. It doesn’t have to be a slow song to be just as much of a reflection of your love and admiration of one another.
Taking a few dance lessons to put a little bit of polish on some rusty dancing shoes can be a lot of fun for both of you. With a little bit of practice, you and your dad can turn a classic Father-Daughter Dance song into a beautiful waltz, or you can have a whole routine built around his favorite classic rock song.
No matter what kind of song you and your dad use for the Father-Daughter Dance at your wedding, the most important thing is for you and your dad to enjoy yourselves and really cherish this special moment that you have to spend together.
