The father-daughter dance is such a special moment at a wedding! I remember my dance with my dad clearly and how much it meant to me. My father has been (and continues to be) one of the most important men in my life. His support is like no other and I am so lucky to have him as my dad!
Picking the song I wanted to dance with my dad to was not easy, because there are so many amazing ones out there. I narrowed my choices down to a country song because we had a backyard country wedding, and in all honesty I love country music. And from there, I chose the song that stood out to me as the best representation of my relationship with my father. In the end, we danced to I Loved Her First by Heartland and the song is still so special to me!
Out of all the songs danced to at a wedding, the father-daughter dance brings me to tears each and every time. Especially now that I have a daughter and know that one day she will get to share in this special dance with my husband! Is anyone else out there this moved by the bride dancing with her father??
While choosing your father-daughter song, think about your dad and what he means to you! The list below should at least help you in the right direction. Each song is linked to YouTube so you can sample them all! Remember that this is your moment with your dad, to thank him for all that he's done for you, and to show your appreciation of him as the amazing man that he has been in your life. Choose the song that speaks to you and enjoy dancing with your dad on your wedding day!
