You’re getting married. You have the dress, the groom and the menu picked out, but what about your music? What is your father-daughter dance song?
Here are our picks for best father-daughter dance songs:
“My Girl” // The Temptations
You can only choose this one if you (and your dad) have a little bit of rhythm. Not a lot, but at least a little.
“Daughter” // Loudon Wainwright
This is a lesser-known song to most people, but if you listen to the lyrics, it’s sure to resonate with you and your old man!
“Brown Eyed Girl” // Van Morrison
BUT, ONLY IF YOU HAVE BROWN EYES.
“Sweet Pea” // Amos Lee
A really sweet, peppy ditty that you’re daddy will love.
“Daddy’s Little Girl” // Michael Bolton
You have to be a certain person to dance to Michael Bolton anywhere, much less your wedding, but this song could work.
“My Little Girl” // Tim McGraw
This one will make everyone in attendance cry.
“You Are My Sunshine” // Johnny Cash
What’s better than Johnny Cash serenading you with a lullaby? Well, other than getting married.
“Landslide” // Fleetwood Mac
Use the live version where Stevie Nicks says, “this is for your daddy” at the very beginning.
“Little Miss Magic” // Jimmy Buffett
Not your typical Buffett song. It’s super sweet and perfect for a father-daughter dance.
“When You Need Me” // Bruce Springsteen
Because he’s the boss. Like your dad.
Be sure to pick a song that means something to you and your dad and one you can actually dance to.
