Dancing on the Clouds

Making decisions about the songs for your big day can be a difficult task. When contemplating about what songs you might want to dance to on your wedding day, you should consider those songs that resonate with the mood of each section of the wedding and reception. These sections range from ceremony music to the couple’s first dance to mother-son dance etc. Choosing the perfect song stirs emotion and brings memories that may not have been thought of in quite some time.  It might be a song sung by father and daughter every time he picked her up from school or the song that was playing on the radio during your first date.  Choosing songs are just as important as choosing the perfect menu. Below are some of the songs recommended for various essential moments.

This is one of the most emotional moments in a wedding reception. Though, father-daughter dance has become a staple of wedding receptions nowadays, the age-long tradition used to have much more significance in the past than it does today. The father-daughter dance signifies a father’s very last moments of being the sole man in the life of his daughter after which he hands her over to the groom.

The following are some of the popular great songs for this kind of wedding dance:

  •         Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder
  •          When You Need Me by Bruce Springsteen
  •          Have I Told You Lately by Rod Stewart
  •         I loved Her First by Heartland
  •      It’s For My Dad by Nancy Sinatra
  •       If I Could by Ray Charles

  •          My Little Girl by Tim McGraw
  •          Daughters by John Mayer

Mother-Son Dance

Like the father-daughter dance song, the mother-son dance song, this too should have great, emotional lyrics and the music should be such that it should be easy to dance to.
