Did you find your perfect father daughter wedding dance?

Hopefully, this list has given you some ideas to help your search! The Dad and daughter song has a little more freedom and flexibility than a traditional first dance which tends to be a slow, more romantic affair. The father/daughter dance can indeed be slow and relaxed or, on the flip-side, upbeat and rocky - it's entirely up to you! After all, it's your big day, so you have the freedom to choose exactly what you want.
