It’s June and guess what we celebrate this month? Father’s Day! What better time to share some Father-Daughter Wedding songs! Now, the song you pick to dance with your father is going to depend on your style. Maybe the lyrics are more important to you than the actual music or perhaps you want something more danceable and the lyrics come second. In my case, I danced with my grandfather, but my mom and I picked a song we thought would mean a lot to both my father and grandfather. My grandfather always dreamt of dancing the waltz with me, so that’s exactly what we did. I went ahead and separated the Father Daughter’s Wedding songs by style. I hope this helps you find some inspiration, and don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
