As you search for the special song that you and your dad will dance to at our wedding, you would be wise to find one that is unique and fits with you and your father’s relationship. Think about how you two got along growing up and how your relationship is now. If there are strains between the two of you and you are not very close, you should still go forward with this dance, as long as it is something that he may want. It is kind of expected as something to be seen by your wedding guests and you may be drawing more attention to this fact by skipping the dance altogether. If that is the case, there are plenty of songs that work that are standards that don’t say a lot…they work as kind of filler music so you can just get through the dance and move on.
If you do care about dad and want this event to be a special moment for the both of you, you can find songs by genre that he will love easier than finding cheap catering insurance. Looking at father daughter wedding songs classic rock is a good place to start. Many dads in this day and age grew up listening to that kind of music so it should be the easiest place to find a song that either reminds him of you or that he just simply loves. Other genres include oldies, like Motown and 50′s rock and roll and ballads, big band and swing, and even the newer top 40 music from adult contemporary artists.
If you have a good grasp of which song you plan to use, but it is not a typical father daughter dance (good for you!), you will need to do a lyrics check. Simply search for the song title and add the word lyrics and you will find the words online to review.
