Father Daughter Wedding Songs

Dancing With My Daughter, AlexisFather daughter wedding songs came to my mind recently when I heard the song “Brown Eyed Girl” on an internet radio station. This is the song that I danced with my daughter at my wedding in May of 2006. My daughter and I both looked forward to this dance very much, and it was wonderful (yes, that’s the real picture there). I guess it goes to show that you should choose your weddings songs carefully, because they will remind you of that day every time you hear them, probably forever. I decided to come up with a list of the 10 best father daughter wedding songs. Okay, so this list might be a little bit biased, but you get the big picture.

Here’s my list –

1. Brown Eyed GirlVan Morrison
2. My GirlTemptations
3. The Way You Look TonightFrank Sinatra
4. Butterfly KissesBob Carlisle
5. What A Wonderful WorldLouie Armstrong
6. Have I Told You LatelyRod Stewart
7. Wonderful TonightEric Clapton
8. Wind Beneath My WingsBette Midler
9. Isn’t She LovelyStevie Wonder
10. HeroMariah Carey

    The sweetest thing ever! My husband dancing with my beautiful daughter, just watching her big “brown eyes” light up the dance floor and my husband’s smile beaming from cheek to cheek. A truly beautiful thing…

    I was really nervous about it too, being a generally shy person! A wedding is different though. I’ve never felt more comfortable with 70+ people staring at me at once, but I enjoyed it so much. Our daughter and I both loved it and i’m glad we picked such a great song! Weddings are truly magical…

    This only goes to prove how important it is to make sure everything is planned to make the occassion run without a hitch and be reaaly memorable. Why not visit my blog for ideas on how to make it a stress free day.

    We specialize in weddings and the list above is good. I would add the following:
    I Loved Her First by Heartland, Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel) by Billy Joel, and My Wish by Rascal Flatts,

    Butterfly kisses, no matter how cheesy it gets, is a good father daughter song, but Brown eyed girl? Don’t get me wrong, I love the song but just make sure you don’t get the the version with the line in it about “making love in the green grass, behind the stadium with you”. Being that close to your daughter is a definate no-no!

    My niece is getting married soon. I am walking her down the aisle since my brother passed away 6 years ago. We are looking for a song called “One last dance with Daddy” (or very close to that) for our dance together. Can anyone help?

  8. 8Bill

    The song I am referring to above is by a male singer and there won’t be a dry eye in the room when we are done, including both of us. Please give me a song title if you can…
