Special dances at a wedding reception means more to some than others, but it seems to me that the most emotional dance of the evening is the Father/Daughter dance.  I see more tears shed during this dance, than any other dance.  I don’t know if it is because it is “Daddy’s Little Girl” growing up and officially moving on, or if it is the daughter realizing that it is time to start her own family.  You see grandparents, mothers, and even friends with tears in their eyes during this dance. So to help out, I am going to list some of the popular songs that has been used over the years in Lexington, Kentucky to help if you are struggling deciding on the “right” song for this dance.  Your song may not be on this list, and if you have one that you do want to use, just let your DJ know that, and they will get the right song for you!
