We celebrate Father’s Day this month by taking a look at a few ways a Bride can transform a Father & Daughter Dance into a lasting, wedding reception memory.
There really isn’t a definitive history to the origins of the Father & Daughter Dance. But, through the years, it has become an important tradition at a majority of wedding receptions. It is because there is no history to the tradition, though, that you as a Bride should feel free to create whatever lasting memory is best fitting to the relationship you have with your dad.
That singular, exclusive dance can be an expression of a daughter’s love, respect and appreciation for her father. But, it can also be an opportunity to have some fun by celebrating the happy memories you have growing up with the first man in your life, the man who, perhaps, set the bar through his example for the husband you’ve chosen.
Whichever way you choose, always remember that this moment is one that your dad, although he may never admit it, has envisioned since you were a little girl. Don’t discount the opportunity to make your dance with him one that you both will cherish for a lifetime.
