The 10 Best Father/Daughter Wedding Dance Song Ideas

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the father/daughter dance. Just watching a dad and his little girl -- who is not so little but will always be a little girl to him -- oh. my. heart. It just gets me every time.

No one is really listening to the song, if I'm being honest. A few months after our wedding, while at another, my dad asked me what song we even danced to. He wasn't listening. 

But, as you're planning your wedding, you do need to pick a song. So I'm helping you out. I put together a list of our favorite father/daughter wedding dance song ideas.
