Editor’s Note: Hey #BellaNaijaWeddings beauties, weddings are always full of special moments. First look, vow exchange, first dance and also father-daughter moment. In as much as the day is about the couple, they get to share that day with those who matter to them like their parents. Every father looks forward to dancing with their daughter on this day.

Hey family, I have truly enjoyed sharing with you everything wedding music, today I want to talk about the father-daughter dance.
Every young girl looks forward to having her father beside her on her wedding day. From kindergarten to high school up until the University and beyond, being escorted by “daddy” down the aisle to meet her second love, her husband, is at the top of their wish list. The bond fathers and daughters share is unique that it is almost impossible to comprehend. It is truly love at first sight. Sharing a special moment at her wedding with her father is every girl’s dream, so I’ve highlighted some songs that help bring this moment to life.
For some families, their father-daughter dance depicts their family’s orientation and individual character; using songs that brings that to life. Some families are rather chill and calm while the others exuberant and energetic; picking a song that meets their style is important for the occasion.
