15 father daughter dance song ideas that aren’t awkward

Father/daughter dance songs

The dance between a father and his daughter on her wedding day always is a heartfelt, symbolic moment on the big day – it’s the last time that your dad will get to dance with you as his “little girl,” and it’s a special few minutes that you get to spend solely with the man that raised you and ultimately got you ready for this moment.

That being said, you may be thinking that the pressure is on to pick the perfect father daughter dance song. Do you go with a classic? Country? Do you want to attempt to be the newest YouTube sensation with a choreographed number?

Coming from a woman who agonized for weeks over picking the right song for my first dance with my dad, take my advice when I say don’t sweat it! Although the song that I chose now holds a special place in my heart (it’s included in the list below!), I hardly can remember the few minutes that my dad and I spent dancing to it. We ended up talking through nearly the whole song, reminiscing about everything going on and keeping me laughing so I wouldn’t cry, that I only vaguely remember the song even playing in the background.
