We know... It's a BIG decision. It's the dancing with daddy right after you've officially become a wife! It's sentimental for the both of you and it has to be PERFECT. So in honor of Father's Day this year we've compiled a list of the top ten father daughter dance songs that can probably get your wheels turning and hopefully not your eyes watering (it's totally normal if that happens too though). Now let's get started...
10. I Loved Her First by Heartland
A true classic that was absolutely made for father daughter dances. So true of a dad's relationship with his little girl.
9. My Girl by The Temptations
If your dad is into oldies, he's going to love this suggestion. Such a cute song when you're daddy's little girl.
8. My Little Girl by Tim McGraw
For any country fans out here this one is so perfect. Such a sweet sweet song that will have all your guests thinking about you and your dad, and the meaning behind this moment. Also, probably crying.
7. Daughters by John Mayer
A more modern and sweet song if you're not as into the country vibe by Mr. Mayer, but for obvious reasons still appropriate.
6. Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison
If you've got brown eyes, your dad has probably sung this to you more than once. This is a super cute upbeat song. You may be even able to get some twirls in with this one :)
5. How Sweet It Is by James Taylor
An upbeat wonderful song for this dance, you'll surely remember forever.
4. Isn't She Lovely by Stevie Wonder
A true classic and there isn't a soul in the room who won't agree that the brand new Mrs. with her newlywed glow is certainly lovely.
And now for the most popular out there...
3. What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong
"I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do, but they're really saying I love you." How perfect for a wedding atmosphere?!
2. Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole
Everyone knows this one. Everyone loves it. It's so perfect as long as it's perfect for you and your daddio.
1. Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle
A song about a little girl's relationship with her father and growing up. When cuddled close her eyelashes tickle his cheek... thus butterfly kisses. We DARE you to listen to this song and try not to cry (or bawl like a baby like we do every time). Another fair warning is that this song is SUPER long, so if you're going to be struggling with this emotional moment already, it will be a lot to endure.
Give your dad a hug, wish him a happy Father's Day and dream of this moment until your big day comes!
