Many future brides look forward to the song they'll share with their father on the dance floor. The father/daughter dance has become an integral part of nearly every wedding reception. This dance symbolizes a little girl's arrival at adulthood.

Many fathers choose a special song for their daughters while they're still young children. This could be a song they like to sing together, or a song that reminds him of the years when she was a little girl. I've been to quite a few weddings where the father and daughter danced to the Temptations' "My Girl."

Last Dance with Daddy's Little Girl

Another popular song for the father/daughter dance is Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight." This song expresses the joy a father feels when he sees his daughter. Just by looking at her his troubles can and worries melt away. This song lets her know he will always have a special place for her in his heart.

Many professional wedding DJs have a large number of songs that can be used for the father/daughter dance. You and your father can choose one of the popular songs, including "Wind Beneath My Wings" or "Sunrise Sunset," or you can choose a song that is special to both of you. If you are having trouble thinking of a special song, just ask your father. Chances are he already has one in mind.
