What To Choose For a Father-Daughter Dance

For your Father-Daughter Dance, there are plenty of Classics songs to choose from that will feel just right for the two of you.

Start off by seeing if your Father has a favorite song that reminds him of you.  This is your day, but it is also a big day for your parents.

Classics are great!

That’s what makes them classic!

While that may be true, they aren’t a fit for everyone.

Here are some of my favorite, not-so-traditional songs that couples I have worked with used for a Father-Daughter Dance at their wedding receptions.
