Take a look at these top tips for picking a great father-daughter wedding dance song:

Listen to the ENTIRE song

There are songs that start off sweet and perfect for the moment and can quickly take a turn as the song continues, leaving an awkward, sour taste in your mouth. Listen to the entire song to ensure its right for your dance with your father.

Think about the Personality of the Song

Do you want your guests to be sobbing like babies or giggle throughout? Picking between the two should be pretty easy. Thinking about the relationship of you and Dad will help you pick the song’s personality.

Think about Special Times With Dad

Moments like inside jokes or family games are fun to try to incorporate in the father-daughter wedding song. Even if it doesn’t make sense to your wedding guests, it will have meaning between you and Dad.
