Be inspired by these popular and unique tunes for your father-daughter dance.
While some brides have always envisioned dancing with their father to a special song that they've loved since childhood, others may be at a complete loss for which tune to choose. Just as father-daughter relationships vary, so too do the preferences of both the father of the bride and his daughter. To offer some assistance, we've gathered all of the father-daughter dance songs chosen by the brides featured in the 2018 issues of Inside Weddings.
More than one father-daughter pair selected classics like “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra, “Isn’t She Lovely?” by Stevie Wonder, “My Girl” by The Temptations, and “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. Others chose to go with touching country tunes, such as “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw, “I Loved Her First” by Heartland, and “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack. “Daughters” by John Mayer was also a popular choice for our 2018 couples, as was “In My Life” by The Beatles and the father-daughter duet “Unforgettable” by Nat "King" Cole & Natalie Cole.
Whether you choose to go with one of these tried-and-true melodies or select a song that's meaningful to both you and your dad, we've gathered a number of father-daughter dance song ideas to help you decide.
