Our Favourite Father and Daughter Dance Songs


If you’re on the hunt for the perfect song for your father and daughter dance, we have you covered! The Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have rounded up the most touching and fun songs, guaranteed to provide you with a dance you won’t forget on your wedding day…


Things to consider:

  • Select a song that means something to both of you.
  • Consider the tempo – if your dad’s feet don’t move as fast as they used to, it’s probably best to opt for a slow song instead!
  • Think about the mood – do you want something light-hearted or meaningful? 
  • Listen to all the lyrics and ensure you are both happy with the sentiments of the song.
  • Choose a song that’s a good length – unless you’re planning on performing a full dance routine, you’re probably best selecting a song that’s around three minutes long. 


  • This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) by Natalie Cole

A fun heart-warming choice, this song is brilliant to dance to and will ensure your guests join you on the dance floor.


  • The Best Day by Taylor Swift

Although this song was originally written for Taylor’s mum, we can’t help but think it’s an ideal choice for a father and daughter dance. Featuring touching lyrics like “I have an excellent father, his strength makes me stronger”, this song will definitely tell your dad how much he means to you on your big day.


  • God Only Knows by The Beach Boys

“God only knows what I’d be without you” – the lyrics say it all! This song is a brilliant choice if you’re incredibly close to your dad.


  • I’ll Be There for You by The Rembrandts 

If you’re both fans of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, this song will not only reflect your personalities, but it’s full of fun lyrics too!


  • You are the Sunshine of my Life by Stevie Wonder

Although there are many Stevie Wonder options you can opt for, our favourite is this 70s upbeat love song. 


  • My Girl by The Temptations

A real toe tapper, this song is filled with meaningful lyrics about a dad’s love for his daughter- perfect!
