Planning a wedding is hard. I don’t think anyone will ever argue with that statement. There are so many things to do as soon as you say yes to that proposal! It’s easy to overlook seemingly minor details, like “what song will my father and I dance to?” For some brides, this can be easy if your father or whoever special in your life is taking that place has something specific in mind. For a lot of people, this can be a tough decision! It’s a huge moment during the day that symbolizes the father’s last dance with his daughter before giving her away! We have got you covered with a list of some of our client’s and our DJ’s favorites for the Father-Daughter dance songs.
Wedding DJ Playlist – Father Daughter Dance Songs
It’s your special dance!
We want to start off by saying, this entire day is all about YOU! If you and your father or father-figure are more of the type to headbang to death metal than slow dance, DO IT! If y’all would rather get down to some hip-hop or make some kind of choreographed dance, GO FOR IT! We’ve all seen the videos, you can even do a mixture of the two! The biggest thing we tell our brides is don’t feel like you have to do the normal thing!
It doesn’t have to be just you!
We know not everyone loves to be the center of attention! If your dad is one of those that doesn’t want to be dancing alone in front of a crowd for very long, that’s okay! A popular trend we have seen lately is after a part of the song has played and the bride and her father have danced alone some, the DJ will open the dance floor to any other fathers and daughters in the family or crowd to also join! It’s a great way to keep your guests involved during the day and to share that moment with your guests in an entirely different way.
