Father-daughter dance songs for your wedding

The father-daughter dance is a time-honoured tradition, one that is an essential part of the wedding reception. I always found this dance to be a very special one for any wedding I’ve attended. It represents a woman leaving her father’s home and starting a new home with her husband. Finding the right song for the father-daughter dance might take a little time – but not to worry, you will find something amazing for your special day. There are definitely more options for the first dance as bride and groom. When you think about choosing a song for the father-daughter dance, you’ll need to consider what kind of song you’d like for the occasion. Are you looking for something upbeat or would you prefer a slower song that’s more sentimental? If you go the sentimental route, you’ll want to make sure your song provides the right sentiment without it sounding sexual. Would you want something a bit more modern or do you think a classic song might be best for your wedding? Here are a few of my favourites, a mix of classics and some modern songs as well:

  • Stevie Wonder – Isn’t she lovely                                                          Bride and father dancing their Father-Daughter dance
