Two bright figures at every wedding are the bride and his father. The oldest tradition is to give your daughter away during the ceremony. This way, the father shows his respect to the groom and entrusts his lovely child to a man who will care about her. For most fathers, this experience is pretty traumatic. But there is one more tradition that can lighten a mood and defuse this touching situation.
This is an unforgettable father-daughter dance at the wedding ceremony. Some couples are planning that it will be something calm and tender to show all the love between the bride and her Dad. Others decide to arrange a wild performance with rock or disco father-daughter dance songs to impress relatives and friends.
It depends on your preferences and vision of this event in the wedding scenario. Nevertheless, get ready with everything and prepare for rehearsing sessions before the ceremony. Explore various father-daughter wedding dance songs to find the best match to accompany your moves.
What Father-Daughter Dance Songs to Choose?
You should understand what you want to promote with the song for the First Dance (speaking about the dancing tandem of the bride and her Dad). Words and their special meaning inspire some brides. The lyrical context is very touching to highlight the love between a father and his daughter. That is why there are classic variants for your ceremony to take into consideration:
- Isn’t She Lovely by Steve Wonder;
- Nothing Can Change This Love by Ray Charles;
- Ballerina Girl by Lionel Ritchie;
- It’s for My Dad by Nancy and Frank Sinatra;
- My Girl by the Temptations.
Take a closer look at modern music — there are also many touching songs to consider. For example, Make You Feel My Love by Adele or Hero by Mariah Carey will suit your occasion. If you want the extraordinary first dance, you might prefer disco or rock songs to bring the wow effect with your hot and energetic moves together with your Dad.
Original Father-Daughter Dance Songs to Consider
Be original if you want to impress guests at your ceremony. If many couples select traditional country father-daughter dance songs like My Little Girl by Tim McGraw or My Wish by Rascal Flatts, you can choose a disco song or even try rock to make a true explosion of emotions among your family members and friends. The perfect accompaniment can be the following:
- Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader;
- Wake Me Up by Wham!;
- Everybody Have Fun Tonight by Wng Chung, etc.
A great idea is to create a mix of songs to surprise your guests. Use one of the standard father-daughter dance songs (country) at the beginning and end with a song like Rock My Body or Love Is in the Air to show the way you move! While summarizing, optimal music is a half battle. But you must also make a dance and rehearse it ideally to be highly self-confident and blow the dancefloor off!
