Or maybe you don’t want to use the father daughter song that one of your friends or family members used. Here is a list of some very unique father daughter wedding dance songs.
“Let it Be Me” by Ray Lamontagne
This slow paced modern rock song can be a great choice for a father daughter dance song. Ray Lamontagne says that if there ever comes a time when you need someone to turn to, he hopes it will be him. The lyrics to this song can be a perfect choice for a father daughter or stepfather daughter wedding dance.
“Footprints in the Sand” by Leona Lewis
If you’re looking for a pop song with beautiful vocals and lyrics for your father daughter dance song, this can be a great choice. Leona Lewis sings, “I promise you, I’m always there/ When your heart is filled with sorrow and despair/ I’ll carry you when you need a friend/ You’ll find my footprints in the sand.” The melody for this song makes it appropriate for a slow dance.
“Walk with You” by Edwin McCain
Though this musician is most well known for first dance songs “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask for More,” Edwin McCain has also released a song that’s intended as a father daughter song. The song is from the perspective of a father to his daughter. Edwin McCain sings, “And I can’t help thinking that I’m the lucky one/ You’re still my baby daughter, but now I’ve gained a son.”
“Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman
This father daughter song is not all that popular and it can be a very beautiful choice. It is about a father who reminisces dancing with his daughter to help her practice for a childhood ball to the prom to her wedding day. He sings, “So, I will dance with Cinderella, while she is here in my arms/ Cause I know something the prince never knew/ Oh, I will dance with Cinderella/ I don’t wanna miss even one song/ Cause all too soon, the clock will strike midnight/ And she’ll be gone.” Keep in mind that this can be a very emotional song choice.
“My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw
If you’re looking for a less common country father daughter song than “I Loved Her First,” this Tim McGraw song can be a good choice. Tim McGraw sings, “You’re beautiful, baby, from the outside in/ Chase your dreams, but always know the road that will lead you home again/ Go on, take on this whole world/ But know to me you’ll always be…my little girl.” This is another father daughter song which can be fairly emotional.
