Wedding songs for parent dances

Of all the requests we get asked about, this ones a biggie!

When it's mum or dad dancing by your side, you want to pick the perfect tune paying close attention to the lyrics.

The wedding song for the parents dance is an acknowledgment of and nod to the profound love shared between parents and their children. HUGE.

But it doesn't have to be a ballad or over sentimental - it might be the song you rocked out to on the dance floor with your parent as a tiny tot. Did they pass on a love for a band to you from a young age?

Recently, one of our brides chose a Fleetwood Mac song for her father and daughter dance because the first concert she ever went to was with her daddy to see Fleetwood Mac (lucky duck). The lyrics weren't about a parent child relationship - but it didn't matter at all. The sentiment was perfect.
