Father/Daughter Dances

Few wedding moments are more touching than the father-daughter dance. But finding a song that encapsulates the relationship you share with your dad can be tricky. (Let's face it: There are a lot of songs that start out endearing, but quickly take a turn for the awkward once it becomes clear the lyrics are about a different kind of relationship.)

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.

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.
