I’ve not been to many weddigs but noticed the idea of a father/daughter dance on the Bee – is this a traditional thing? When do you have it during the cermony? does it have to be for a WHOLE song? I get nervous when all of the attention is on my – especially when I’m dancing!!!!

Here in the US it’s traditional to have a father-daughter and mother-son dance relatively early in the evening. Usually after the bride & groom’s first dance, maybe not directly after but not too long after. It’s usually one full song for each.

I did a father-daughter dance with my dad, but told the DJ to wind it down after two minutes. I figure no one wants to watch us dance for any longer than that! We did the same thing with the mother-son dance that my husband did with his mom. We went straight from our first dance into father-daughter, followed by mother-son. In my view, if you decide to do it, you can dance for as long (or as short) as you like! Just be sure to tell your band or DJ how long to go.

I assumed ours would be right after the first dance, but it actually wasn’t until after dinner – either right before or right after we cut the cake. I can’t remember! You can absolutely have them cut it down to make the song shorter. I didn’t do this, but I see it done all the time for first dances and the parent dances.

I’ve seen it where the father & bride dance for a couple minutes, then the DJ invites other fathers/daughters to join them for the rest of the song. If I do it, I want to go that route so people aren’t staring at me for a full 3-4 minutes.
