The father-daughter dance is one of the most timeless and importance parts of your entire wedding night. It’s within those special moments that tears may be shed, laughter is heard, and the sound of cheers fill the room. This is your dad, the man who raised you, so what better honor to give him then the chance to share the dance floor with you on your wedding day. If you are still searching for some inspiration, or perhaps that perfect song to play for your father-daughter wedding dance, we have some great tips for you! Keep reading and make sure to grab a few tissues!
Find a song that shares sentimental meaning for the both of you. This could be a song that your father played for you as a child, or perhaps a song that you enjoyed together while camping or on a road trip. You want something that speaks to your heart and is a representation of the relationship the you share together.
Let Him Choose
This is a really sweet gesture! Giving your dad the honor of choosing your dance song will bring him so much joy. He will always see you as his little girl, so melt his heart with this one! Let him know that as you embark on this new journey, you will always be right by his side.
Yes, we know that is an incredibly emotional moment for the both of you, but you should remember to have fun while out are at it. This is your wedding day after all! One of the things that we love are choreographed father-daughter dance routines. Have a little fun showing off your dance moves and mixing some songs together.
Practice makes perfect, wouldn’t you agree? Set up some time to get a few practice sessions in before the big day. This will help you to be better prepared, and it will also help with those pre-wedding day jitters!
If you are feeling the water works, make sure that dear old dad has a handkerchief on hand. You may need it for this one!
