Hire Wedding DJ Melbourne – Father Daughter Dance

Thinking to Hire Wedding DJ Melbourne as your wedding entertainment? Should you have a Father Daughter Dance on your wedding day? These are probably the questions you are asking yourself and your partner.

A wedding is about the marriage of two people coming together. But aside from the first dance as a married couple, there is another emotional moment during the wedding reception. It is the dance between the bride and her father.

This is now becoming more and more popular for the father of the bride to dance with his daughter. This usually takes place before or after the bride and groom have their first dance together. In fact, this is normally done whilst everyone gathers around the dance floor.

The Father Daughter Dance is a sentimental moment, watch by all of the wedding guests. It should be dance to a song that means something special to both the bride and her father.

Matt Jefferies Entertainment as your Hire Wedding DJ Melbourne

As your Melbourne Wedding DJ, I would always suggest that you choose a song that reminds you both of happy times spent together. Perhaps a moment you shared many years ago that always evokes happy memories?

This can be a slow song or something more upbeat, whatever you chose, it must mean something personal to you both. This can also be followed by a dance shared by the mother of the groom and her son.

Whatever decade and genre you choose, there will be a lot of emotion in the room so teary eyes are guaranteed as you remind Dad you’ll always be his little girl. As a matter of fact the Father Daughter Dance is a great photo opportunity and will be a memory shared by close families for years to come.

If you and your Dad are unsure as to what song to play, don’t worry, I’ve include a list of popular songs to give you some ideas.
