We put a lot of pressure on the first three dances at our wedding reception. As a bride, you have to pick two songs that represent the most important men in your life — your dad and your now husband. If you are like me, you are close with your dad, and so picking a song to represent the relationship between the two of you will be incredibly difficult. Whether you are single and daydreaming about your future wedding, or you are just weeks away from saying “I do,” here are 25 songs that are perfect for your father-daughter dance. 

1. “The Way You Look Tonight,” by Frank Sinatra

2. “I Loved Her First,” by Heartland

3. “Cinderella,” by Steven Curtiss Chapman

4. “Brown Eyed Girl,” by Van Morrison

5. “My Little Girl,” by Tim McGraw
