My favorite part of any wedding is by far the Father/Daughter dance. The moment the music starts to play, you begin picturing what that moment will feel like to you, often resulting in a few tears. And it is more than a special moment to the father-of-the-bride with his daughter that is all grown up. Which song are you using for your Father/Daughter dance?

Without question it’s Heartland’s “I loved Her First.” It’s proven time and time again to be perfect lyrically, musically, and sentimentally for the occasion.

There are a bunch of classics that I love to recommend. These always work well for the occasion since they are mostly upbeat, and set a great tone for the rest of the evening.

Stevie Wonder’s “You Are The Sunshine of My Life
Nat King and Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable
Van Morrison’s “Tupelo Honey
The Beatles’ “In My Life
James Taylor “You’ve Got a Friend
