YourÂ Father Daughter Dance
Make Your Father Daughter Dance a Unique and Unforgettable Moment

It makes it that much more memorable. Today on the blog we are sharingÂ 14 of our favorite unique father daughter dance songsÂ to make forÂ anÂ unforgettable moment!
One of ourÂ favorite moments during the reception is the father daughter dance. Â The traditional father daughter dance is the perfect moment to capture your uniqueÂ relationship with each other in a song. Music often says the words thatÂ we can’t. It can bring a crowd to tears and put a smile on everyoneâ€™s face all at the same time!Â For me, it was a bittersweet moment.
My dad was very talented. He was a singer/songwriter and I was blessed to inherit his talent for singing. We even recorded the song â€œUnforgettableâ€ together. Sadly, like so many other brides, I lost my dad long before I walked down the isle. My mom re-married an incredible man and I was so blessed to have him walk me down the isle. When it came time for the father-daughter dance, I chose to play that same recording of me and my dad singing â€œUnforgettableâ€ together while I dance with my stepdad. I will never forget that moment.
The best father daughter song is the one that holds a special meaning for you and your dad. Whether itâ€™s â€œBorn to be Wildâ€ by Steppenwolf, â€œMy Girlâ€ by The Temptations, or a choreographed dance to â€œFootlooseâ€ by Kenny Loggins-pick a song that is personal and unique to the relationship you have with your father rather than what is just popular.
