Father-Daughter Dance

1625789_1124302519241_7596354_nThere’s something incredibly special about a Bride’s dance with her Dad on her Wedding Day. So taking some time to pick the right song is very important! Here are some tips for the Father-Daughter Dance.


The timing of the Father-Daughter Dance typically follows the Bride & Groom’s First Dance, unless the First Dance happens prior to the meal. Then, it’s more common to do the Father-Daughter dance after the meal or even after the Cake Cutting. Selecting to right time should be based on your preferences. We recommend right after the meal.

If you have a large dance floor, consider having the guests gather around the dance floor for the Father-Daughter Dance making that special moment that much more special.

Some couples may combine the Father-Daughter Dance with the Mother-Son Dance. There are many songs such as, “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole that would work well for this dance.

Consider involving your Dad in choosing a song┬ábut only if he wants to be involved. Often, parents are happy to simply let you pick out this song, so don’t be surprised if this is your Dad.

One last option is to invited other Fathers and Daughters at the Reception to join in the dance half way through the song – this usually works well if there’s at least 4 or more other Father-Daughter combinations at the Wedding.
