Wedding Song Recommendations: Father Daughter Dance


“How do I choose a song for our father daughter dance?” “What if we don’t have a “song”, how do we choose our first dance track?” “We want to be different so what do you suggest for our grand entrance song?”

These are all great questions and ones that we hear all the time. So, we decided to start posting our best recommendations and even some creative song selections from our own clients to help all of our brides and grooms to be!

Brides are consistently asking Elevated Pulse DJ's for father daughter wedding song suggestions. If they ask their fathers, the usual response is something classic like Frank Sinatra. While the classics are always a great choice, some Brides want to go the less traditional route with their wedding music and are looking for a special and meaningful song just for them and their Dad. Here are a few recommendations to help inspire both the traditional and non-traditional Brides. Enjoy!
