A question I often get asked is “What’s a good Father-Daughter Dance song?” I have a sweet, smart and beautiful daughter, so I’m a bit of a softie when it comes to this topic. Whenever I witness a Father-Daughter Dance I can’t help but smile and think of the day I’ll be dancing with Finley at her wedding. With that said, I LOVE to help out whenever I get asked this question.

There are a lot of fantastic songs to choose from. Picking the right one can make that moment on the dance floor with your Dad extra special. I can’t be the one to choose it though, because music is very personal and everyone enjoys their own styles. There are also memories and emotions that arise whenever you hear an important song. What I can provide are some great Father-Daughter Dance song recommendations that you hopefully like. And if not, they will at least spark an idea or two for some songs that you do like.
