The father-daughter dance is a typical part of most wedding receptions. This is where obviously the bride dances with her father. While for a multitude of reasons, it is not always the father sometimes the mother, uncle, brother, or step-father is substituted. Still this classic dance is important for most brides on their wedding day.
Just like the first dance with your groom this time is a nice moment to sneak in some extra time with your loved one. Use this moment to thank them for all they’ve done, tell them that you love them and enjoy this peaceful moment together.
For this dance you’ll want to choose a song that speaks about the relationship you have with your dance partner.
So we have compiled a list of different songs, for you to peak at. We hope you find a song that speaks to you whether you and your dad are a couple of goof balls, you’re daddy’s little girl, or you’re dancing with your eldest brother.
