DFW Wedding Planner: Father Daughter Dance Songs
Did you catch our last post? We’re covering father/daughter moments this week in honor of Father’s Day (which is quickly approaching! Time to get those gifts and cards if you haven’t already!). As a DFW wedding planner, we’ve seen our fair share of sentimental wedding-day moments… but there’s one that always brings a tear to our eye: the father/daughter dance.
Watching our brides dance with their dads is a sentimental highlight of every wedding. There is something so special about that father/daughter bond—and what a bittersweet moment for dad, as he gives away his little girl. The father/daughter dance is a great opportunity to create memories with your dad, and to add a personalized touch to your reception.
Selecting the right song is no easy feat, but we’re here to help. Check out our list of favorite father/daughter wedding dance songs to spark some inspiration!
