The father daughter dance at your wedding is probably one of the moments your dad has thought about since you were born. It's also the dance that never fails to bring a tear to our eyes.

Werner Harrer

Sharing this special moment with your dad will no doubt be one of the highlights of your wedding day, so it's important to take the time and think about what song best represents your relationship. Do you want a slow dance? Or something more upbeat? Or maybe you already have a song you both love and have listened to together often.

Below we've listed just some of our favourite father daughter wedding dance songs. These songs are emotional and loving, without being too romantic (awkward).  Plus, most of the songs we've chosen are timeless classics, so chances are your dad has probably already heard and approved of them.
