Ideas for Father Daughter Wedding Songs

We are the wedding band that can perform your Father Daughter wedding songs but chances are if you’re reading this blog, you’ve already searched online for ideas to find the music you and your beloved parent will dance to on your big day. And if you’re like us, you’ve felt some disappointment with what’s out there as it can be overused, corny, or yes we said it- even creepy! Here are our suggestions for doing it right:

Start with a style

Think about a type of father-daughter wedding songs that not only flows with your day but also represents you and your parent’s relationship. Perhaps you want something slow and a sentimental voice for your daddy-daughter song lyrics, more upbeat music to dance to, or a song that will showcase your sense of humor. The theme should equally match the vibe of your wedding as much as it showcases your relationship. As long as it’s authentic, you and your guests will take pleasure in it.

Look for songs by your favorite artists.

Rather than searching for just song titles that might fit the bill, start by searching by your favorite artists. Spending your time on this research will serve you well. If an artist has enough hits, you are very likely to find an appropriate song for a father-daughter or mother-son dance. Some artists that come to mind are Ray Charles, Adele, The Beatles, or Van Morrison.

View the lyrics of the song 

After you have found the song you feel is the best one for you, be sure to break down each lyric of the song (this will keep you out of the creepy vibe!). There are so many songs that are one or two lines away from being perfect. If you’re questioning the song’s appropriateness and it seems like it might be a better fit for a romantic relationship, don’t use it and consider it instead for your first dance song.
