In the USA the father / daughter dance at a wedding is a key part of the evening and as much a part of the wedding tradition as the first dance. Over here in the UK it isn’t such a fixed part of the night and some weddings choose not to have a father / daughter dance or play the event down a little making it a casual intimate moment between father and daughter rather than part of the theatre of the evening.
Live Music Management have got together with our DJ and wedding entertainment planning team and put together the following top ten of the most popular father daughter dance songs. Of course there are songs which mean so much for a family and these are the ones which tend to be given an airing but for those just wanting to choose a nice song the following list may be helpful.
1. (They Long to Be) Close to You The Carpenters
2. A Father Daughter Wedding Song (I’ll Always Be Your Daughter) Lynn Leonti/Jim McShane
3.A Whole New World-Peobo Bryson
4.Always be My Baby Mariah Carey
5.Brown Eyed Girl Van Morrison
6.Celebration Kool & The Gang
7.Because you loved me Celin Dion
8.If this world were mine. Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrel
