The Father Daughter Dance

Award winning mobile DJs and MCs

Remix Weddings

The Father daughter dance is as old a tradition as weddings themselves.  This is a very emotional moment during the wedding reception and is symbolic of the father letting his little girl go to start her on life with her new husband.  This dance usually follows the first dance at the wedding reception.  There is no right or wrong song for this dance, and I recommend picking a song that may be sentimental to you and your father.  As with the other dances, you do not actually have to dance to the whole song.  We can cut the song short if you like.  Usually 2 minutes is the length of time that most of our clients choose to dance.  Below find some suggestions and songs commonly used for the father daughter dance.
