Father / Bride Dance

SONG SELECTIONS

Looking for the best songs for your Father/Bride Dance? The following is a curated playlist of Father/Bride Dance song ideas that both fathers and their daughters will love dancing to!

Typically, Brides should choose the song that she and her father would dance to, but it is also acceptable to have the Father of the Bride select the song. If the bride will be dancing with two fathers in her life—her father and step-father—two options are available. The bride can either dance with both men to the same song, or the bride can select two songs for a dance with both her father and step-father. Brides, you may want to dance to a shortened version of each song.

As you consider Father/Daughter Dance songs, keep in mind the song doesn’t need to be about a dad giving his daughter away, nor does it even have to be about a father and daughter. A good Father/Bride song can simply be about love or dedication. Alternatively, something silly, upbeat, and light-hearted can be selected for a fun moment between bride and father!

Enjoy the Father/Bride Dance songs below, and as always, a Spotify playlist is included at the end for your listening enjoyment!
