The Father-Daughter dance is probably one of the hardest parts of the entire wedding process. The father will inevitably loose it, the bride will smear her make up, the guests will gush over the entire song and if done right, no dry eye will be evident in the room. This dance represents the true “giving away” of the bride. Sure, at the ceremony the dad and mom responded to that classic question: “who gives this women to this man?”… “We do.” But, it is not until the dance that the emotion flows and the tears run and the heart beats fast.
This dance represents the true leaving and cleaving and for the father, it will literally rip his emotions out of his heart. No longer will he be the most important man in his little girl’s heart. From now on, everything has changed, everything has changed. SO… It is really important for a bride to choose this song well. Sure you can ask your dad about his opinion, but he will not be honest. He will be afraid to have you pick too mushy of a song as he wants to appear strong. And you know how hard it is for your dad to express emotion in front of people, let alone a whole room of people focused on just the two of you!
He will not advise you because he knows deep down in his heart, decades of emotion will flood into his soul when he hears the music and he takes your hand and starts to dance. He knows that at that time, during those three or four short minutes, he will have flashing through his heart, mind and soul your whole life and how much he loves you.
