Dad Bride Dance Songs
The Father Daughter Dance or the Father Bride Dance is formally the dance between the father(s) of the bride and the bride herself. The bride should choose one of her favorite melodies to act as the father daughter songs. There are many father daughter wedding songs to choose from. Brides, if you have more than one father in your life, one can tap the other on the shoulder in the middle of the dance so you can dance with both of them. Or, choose two father daughter wedding songs and reserve a special dance for each of your fathers. That way you can choose a song for each man, that will fit his personality and be representative of your relationship.
If you do not have a father, a common substitute is a father figure or even your brother would make a very nice gesture. Some bridal couples combine the father daughter dance with the mother groom dance into just one song to dance. In this case, a bride and groom should agree on a song that is memorable to everyone involved. There are plenty of songs that are ambiguous enough to allow for both the bride and the groom to dance with their parental figure. The songs aren’t required to be about a daddy giving away his little girl. They don’t even have to be about a father or a daughter! They can simply be songs about love, dedication, or even something silly.
A lot of people choose funny songs instead of serious father daughter songs, to give the dance a light-hearted feel. Many fathers and daughters would rather do something fun than something serious. And if you can’t decide on what song to use, you can always choose an instrumental number such as a jazz tune, classical waltz or contemporary dance music. The most important thing is to not rush your decision. You can even discuss it with your father or the man you will dance with if you like, but it is often more fun to make it a surprise and see his reaction as to which one of the father daughter songs you chose. We cannot name all the great father daughter songs.
