[pullquote width=”300″ float=”left”]One of the events that your guests (as well as your father) look forward to most at your wedding reception is watching the dance between the bride and her dad.[/pullquote]Choosing the right father-daughter song for your wedding reception can be one of the most difficult music decisions to make. It can be hard to find just the right lyrics to express the relationship you have with your dad, and even then the tune has to be something easy to dance to.

Most of the wedding and reception is about you, but for the duration of the father-daughter dance it’s his moment in the spotlight. So it’s ideal to find a song you both love, but in the end it’s most important that your dad likes and is comfortable with the song you choose.

Sentimental Daddy-Daughter Songs

There are plenty of sweet tributes to dad, or sweet songs about daughters written by dads, that are perfect for the father-daughter dance at your wedding reception. Some of the biggest tear-jerkers are:
