Father-Daughter Dance

With Fathers Day coming up this weekend (hint: you have just enough time to get Dad something if you have not already), it was only fitting to write about some ideas and songs for your Father/Daughter dance, and how to make your dance with Dad, memorable!

Slow things down, keep it simple. Some brides are not the biggest fan of being center of attention so making the Father/Daughter dance an easy, slow song helps take off the pressure. Plus, you don't need much coordination to make a slow song work beautifully! Photo courtesy of Karen Wise Photography


You don't have to be 100% serious during your dance! Funny can be heartfelt! It all depends on the relationship you have with your father, grandfather, brother, or whoever is sharing this dance with you.

One of the biggest concerns is choosing a song. Try asking Dad what he likes, if he has any preference at all! Maybe he has a song picked out, or he knows a song that you used to listen to with him when you were younger. If you want it to be a surprise, look through his music collection and get some ideas that way! Looking up songs on the internet is a great way to get ideas, but it seems everyone has the same list of "unique" songs. Different is great, but meaningful is even better!

If you do need some ideas, you can check out the list the Huffington Post put out in December of 2012 here! While listening to Pandora radio on shuffle I heard some great songs such as:
George Strait "Love Without End, Amen"
Ray Lamontagne "Let it be Me"
I found this to be the best way to choose a song you wouldn't find suggested on any internet list!

True, Dad may not be your dancing partner, but the same guidelines apply to any special dance. Whether you're dancing with a brother, cousin, grandparent, mother, sister, etc., try to keep in mind what they will be comfortable with!
