This dance, which is typically known as the father daughter dance, is a sentimental moment, usually watched by all of the wedding guests. Sometimes it is even followed by a dance shared by the mother of the groom and her son. The song choice for the father daughter dance is generally chosen prior to the wedding date and given to the band or DJ so that they are aware of what to play. A song that reminds the bride of her childhood or a family favourite could be appropriate for this very special father daughter dance.
