Ask yourself a couple of questions when choosing the best song to dance to with your father:

  • Do you already have a favorite song that makes you think about your dad?
  • Do you want the song to be emotional?
  • Do you want a more upbeat and fun song?
  • Do you love country music?

By choosing the perfect dad-and-daughter dance song, there won’t be a dry eye in the room.

A few brides that we talked to gave us some great ideas for those whose fathers have passed away. Here are some of the thoughts/ideas that they shared:

  • Have a mother-daughter dance instead (We are putting together a list this week for mother-daughter dance songs. Come back shortly to see it)
  • Dance with the person you chose to walk you down the aisle, or another important person in your life (your brother, uncle, godfather, etc.) “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra is a great choice for this.
  • Play one of your father’s favorite songs and have everyone join in on the dance floor for a celebration (we loved this idea!)
