A very special moment between the father and the bride, the Father / Daughter dance can be tricky to get right but hopefully the 100 song ideas below will kickstart some inspiration!

Although not quite as popular as the traditional 'First Dance', the Father & Daughter wedding song still holds a special meaning for both involved and is becoming more and more popular.

Did you find your perfect father daughter wedding dance?

Hopefully this list gave you some ideas to help in your search! The dad and daughter song has a bit 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, be upbeat and rocky - it’s entirely up to you! After all it’s your big day so you have the freedom to pick and choose exactly what you want.
