Your wedding is one of the most special nights of your life, filled with several sentimental moments that you will want to remember forever. Your ceremony features many of these moments especially that feature the bride with their dad.  In some cases, they have an uncle, brother, etc. as well.  From walking down the aisle to your groom, to your first dance, those special moments with the bride and her dad are special moments that you will remember forever.  Not only is it special to you, but all your wedding guests as well. Your father-daughter song should be something that symbolizes the relationship between you and your dad. It is hard to go wrong with picking a song, however, 
Here are a few tips on how to pick your father daughter dance song . . . 
1. A song that has special meaning to you!
Perhaps you have a song that means a lot to your family, or more specifically, a song that means a lot to your dad and you. 
2. A song that reflects your personalities!
Don’t feel like you have to slow dance. If the song that best reflects you is country, rock n’ roll or pop, do it! Learn some dance moves and have a choreographed dance, or just be energetic and fun! Getting laughs with a fun dance can be just as memorable as a song choice that tugs at your guests' heart strings when you slow dance. 
3. Songs about dads!
If you’re having a hard time choosing just one song that is special to you, look at the context and lyrics of a few different ones. See if any of them have parts about dads or a father-daughter relationship.
4. Songs about growing up!
Songs about growing up or moving on to the next stage of life can symbolize or describe this special time in your life as you are growing up and not always going to be daddy's little girl.  
Ultimately the final decision on what song to choose is between you  and your dad, so make it what you want it to be . . . fun or sentimental, but something that represents you two!

My dad and I danced to a song by Journey, because he has always loved Steve Perry and the band and my sister's and I have always associated our love of classic rock to his love of music he passed on to us.  Although it wasn't a more popular song by Journey that everyone might know, it represented him in every way!  Here's my amazing dad this year on Father's Day!
Here is two years ago at our favorite place to vacation in Michigan with Owen, Gracie, Ava and Luke.  Love you, Dad!!   
Thanks to my dad and all father's out there!  XXOO, Kristin
