When does the father dance with his “little girl”?
The Father/Daughter Dance is done immediately following The Wedding Party Dance. This is where The Bride dances with her father to the song of their choice. Traditionally, “Daddy’s Little Girl” had been the favorite, however; over the years other selections have become much more popular and rarely is this song used anymore. Occasionally, and only in the case of a deceased father, we have seen brides dance with their grandfather for this dance. We have seen some brides choose the song “Daddy’s Hands” by Holly Dunn, and have even seen it suggested on other DJ’s web sites. This song is in reference to a deceased father and should only be used in a fitting and appropriate circumstance.
Do the parents dance together? Yes…
The Parents Dance is the last of the specialty dances to be done. This is where The Bride & Groom and their parents all dance together. Traditionally, “Sunrise Sunset” from “Fiddler On The Roof”, has been the favorite, however, over the years other songs have become much more popular. In the case of a divorced or deceased parent, The Bride and Groom usually choose not to do this dance
On funny story I heard is then the parents got up to dance, the DJ actually played “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye…Do I have to say be very careful in your tune selection?
