Your dad will always have that special place in your heart, and at your debut, you want to highlight that unique bond at your debut through the father-daughter dance. Add your own twist to the tradition by choosing the perfect song that celebrates that precious moment with Daddy Dearest.
Check out these five awesome tunes that will fit your (and your dad's) personality for a night worth remembering.
"Treasure" by Bruno Mars
If drama isn't really your thing, you can get your groove on with this 2013 hit by Bruno Mars, "Treasure." Take to the dance floor and kick off the night with your dad by dancing to an upbeat party song. With a disco-feel, the song will set the vibe for an epic night. It is originally a song about a love for a woman, but it can also be used to show how you value the people who love you and those you love.
"You First Believed" by Hoku
If you want to get a little sentimental, then this might be a great pick. A heartfelt song about someone who inspires and believes in you no matter what, Hoku's "You First Believed" perfectly echoes the sentiment of daughters who would always run to their dads for advice. For an unexpected twist, have this played by an orchestra and slow dance with your dad. There surely won't be a dry eye in the crowd, so be sure to have some tissue on hand so you won't mess your make-up!
"Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder
Start the ball rolling with a rhythm and blues song with your dad. If you want a sweet but non-sappy tune, Stevie Wonder's Isn't She Lovely will be perfect your party. Inspired by the birth of Stevie Wonder's daughter, this speaks about a father's genuine love for his daughter. This is best for an elegant party--you may even ask a live band to play the song. Feel that precious dance with your dad as he sways you to becoming a lady.
"Keep Your Head Up" by Ben Howard
Establish a carefree tone as you step on the dance floor with your dad. The tender "Keep Your Head Up" by Ben Howard can easily connect to the audience with its extremely soothing sound and heartfelt lyrics. Let your dad feel how much you love him by dancing with him as this track plays in the background. If you're the type who's not too showy with your feelings, and you always run to your dad for strength, then this song may be a great way to tell your dad you love him dearly.
"Do I Make You Proud" by Taylor Hicks
Let the soulful "Do I Make You Proud" play while you and your dad take to the dancefloor. The ballad, which builds up to a dramatic finish, will perfectly show your dad that you appreciate everything he's done for you. As Taylor Hicks sings, "Because of you, I am standing tall. My heart is full with endless gratitude," your dad will surely beam with pride.
