Father / Daughter Dance

It’s tough to find that perfect song to dance to with Dad.  He walked you down the aisle, gave you away, and now it’s time to hit the dance floor. So what song do you choose for that special moment? You want something special, touching, meaningful…but not romantic. Over the years, I’ve seen mothers, fathers, guests and even photographers tear up over this traditional dance. Choosing the right song can mean the difference between a father and daughter facing each other on the dance floor and shuffling in a circle for four-minutes or holding each other and realizing what an incredible journey they’ve shared — both reflecting on Dad’s support and willingness to do anything for his little girl, and she, growing up (far too quickly) before his eyes, getting married and beginning her own life and family. Hopefully the list below will inspire you.
