Your Dad! He has been the main man in your life for many years. He was the first man to love you and the first man you loved. If you can, don’t miss out on a special moment with the first man in your life. The Father-Daughter dance is a tradition that creates a special moment for any loving father as he gives his little girl away to the man who has promised to be her partner for life. For many, this dance is an important part of many Utah wedding receptions and can’t be missed. Don’t have any regrets by not doing it.
For Sharae P., a mother in Draper, Utah, she feels that this dance is “a symbol of a father who has loved and taken care of his daughter for so many years, and now is saying his goodbyes and passing her on to a new man who will assume the duties of making sure she is loved the rest of her life.”
Carolyn G. from Salt Lake City, Utah, never had such a moment with her father but now that she has a daughter of her own, she looks back to her wedding and wishes she would have shared this tender moment between her and her daddy. She feels this special dance is “a way to recognize that [daddy-daughter] relationship and let the father have that last moment where he is his daughter’s ‘handsome prince’ before turning her over to her husband.”
I asked my mother if she had a daddy-daughter dance with her father. She said she didn’t even think about having one. She didn’t have anyone help her with the planning of her celebration so it totally passed her thoughts. She regrets not having that last dance with her dad, especially since he passed away a few years ago.
Ivy House Weddings and Atrium Weddings are two Utah wedding venues that help make dreams come true on a bride’s special day. If she dreams of having such a tender moment with her father, they have dance floors and wonderful sound system are provided to help make this moment everything she imagines.
