Father/Daughter Dance

Getting married is all about family and relationships. Not only is the family that you already have important, but also the two families that are being joined together. For this reason, it is great to make the most of what each of your family members means to you, and there is no better way to do this than with the father-daughter dance. This usually takes place as an official part of the reception, meaning that all eyes are on the two of you. For this reason, you should always make sure that you have it planned so that you both know what you’re doing.

This type of dance can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it, and can be about fun or sentiment, or a mixture of both. You may wish to do nothing more than sway to the music, whilst playing a song that means a lot to the pair of you. If those around you know just why the song is important, it is sure to have a great effect.

If, on the other hand, you want to have a bit of fun, then you may wish to plan an entertaining father-daughter dance. You only have to do a quick scan of the internet to see a whole host of videos that have gone viral from weddings, and many of these are from where pairs of the wedding party have danced together and have surprised their guests by having something prepared. You could take dance lessons, or simply do the moves to “The Macarena” to something different – as long as the beat fits, it will raise a smile, and plenty of glasses!

The father-daughter dance can be a wonderful moment in a wedding reception, and it is entirely up to you what you want to do with it. With our help, you can put together a plan that will stun your guests, and make sure there isn’t a dry eye in the room.
