Popular Father/Daughter Dance Songs

Looking for that perfect song for the father/daughter dance for your wedding?  Today I’m sharing 18 of the most popular father/daughter dance songs.

If you are having a band at your reception see if they can perform the dance song live, or select a song from their song list that they can perform live.  However, if it’s not a song they can sing, don’t worry, it can be played via an I-phone or I-pod.
