Father daughter wedding dance song-making the perfect choice!

Father daughter wedding dance song-making the perfect choice! 150 150 adam Michael

When a bride is trying to choose the perfect father daughter wedding dance song, it can be a tough decision.
It is always recommended for the bride to ask her father to choose the song the moves him, as this father daughter dance is usually most sentimental and meaningful for him.
There are a bunch of lists for the most popular daddy and bride wedding dance songs. Some are listed as “the most popular parent dance songs,” or “the favorite father daughter wedding songs.” Other ways of selecting this song is to ask your band to help select the best wedding father daughter song.
Every bride and her father dance song should be unique and special.
Songs that bring up childhood memories and loving father and daughter moments should be considered.

“As You Dance” by Reid Michaels is a perfect example of a classic, yet contemporary father daughter wedding dance song.
The lyrics are sweet:
I can’t believe this moment has come
Seems like yesterday I first held you in my arms
You were daddy’s little angel
God trusted I was able to give you
A lifetime of my love
and you will always be that little girl that changed my world
I know tonight you start a new life with someone new
But I will always love you still
Chorus:
And as you dance with your father tonight
Let’s remember all those times
All the lullabies goodnight
And as you dance you’re the beautiful bride
I’m so proud who you’ve become
Your new life has begun
Now you’re a daughter and a wife
Dancing with your father tonight
You never fail, you always amaze me with your smile
I’m never gonna lose that feelin
From the moment you arrived a precious gift life
How the stars are still shining in your eyes
and you will always be that little girl that changed my world
I know tonight you start a new life with someone new
But I will always love you still
Chorus:
And as you dance with your father tonight
Let’s remember all those times
All the lullabies goodnight
And as you dance you’re the beautiful bride
I’m so bride who you’ve become
Your new life has begun
Now you’re a daughter and a wife
Dancing with her father tonight
Bridge:
As I give your hand away
With every thought and every prayer
I will stand by you forever
As every dream comes true I’ll always be with you
Chorus:
