A tradition in America that is becoming increasingly popular at Irish wedding receptions is a danced shared by the father of the bride and his daughter, otherwise known as the father daughter dance. The father daughter dance takes place at the beginning of a reception ceremony, after the newlywed couple have shared their first dance together. Prior to the wedding both the father of the bride and his daughter will choose a song together that may have a family meaning or have a sentimental value, before passing it on to the DJ or band. The father daughter dance is a lovely opportunity to reflect on the day and have a private family moment between a very proud father and his beautiful daughter, the bride.
