Father-Daughter Dance Songs

Few parts of the wedding reception get people’s eyes a-misting like the Father-Daughter Dance. The emotional moment — a father twirling his little girl on the dance floor as she prepares to open a new chapter of her life — can be extremely meaningful for both Daddy and daughter, and send everyone in the room reaching for a hanky. Maybe that’s why many brides struggle to find just the right song for the Father-Daughter Dance: Capturing a lifelong, complex and rich relationship in a three-minute melody is no easy task.
