Father Daughter Dance ~ Helpful Hints ~ Raleigh Wedding DJ

January 11, 2012

The father/daughter dance is a very important event, for both the bride and her father. This is normally where the bride has specifically requested a special song to dance with her father. In some cases the actual father has been replaced by step fathers, or brothers, or even best friends. It has become a very special way to honor someone important in the bride’s life. Additionally, it's a time where the father continues to “let his daughter go”.

 

 

This can be a difficult song selection to make.....

 

 

Here are some helpful hints:

 

 

  • As a bride, if you are having a tough time you can seek your mother’s advice. Ask her about your father's favorite songs.

  • You can also enlist the help of friends, your fiance and family members for their advice.

  • Don't forget to bring your Wedding DJ into the loop! If there is one person on your team fully qualified to assist you in this decision. It is your Wedding DJ!

  • If you are still “drawing a blank”, you can always ask your father for songs and artists he likes. The important thing is that the song depicts the exact relationship you have with him. The song should also show gratitude and appreciation of the things he has done for you and your family.

  • In some cases the father picks the song without the knowledge of his daughter, surprising her with the selection. 

  • You might want to choose a song with a medium tempo so you and your father can easily dance to it. There are also father and daughter “teams” that opt for an agreed upon song to include a choreographed dance for an extra element of surprise for their wedding guests.

  • Be sure to check the lyrics or message of the song before making a final decision.
