But nowadays, there has been hundreds of love songs to suit this part. Even more romantic and dramatic to make it a more touching moment for everyone! The classic tradition of Bridal entrance is with the father but today, it’s both the mother and the father of the bride.

Joint Wedding Dance Songs Father Daughter Wedding Songs or Father Daughter Wedding Dance Songs Father-Daughter-Wedding-Songs

Why is it a part of the wedding ceremony? It’s because getting married to your husband is also changing your family name from your father’s surname to your husband’s surname. Yup, it’s shows that since you were born, you have live all your life being in the care of the father before marriage. He has provided every need of the daughter but the wedding day is the day, in which the bride will be spending the rest of her life with her husband and is now under his care. This part is actually one of the most emotional moment of the wedding day. I know most of the daughters are more attached to their fathers than mothers.

Mother Son Wedding Songs


Obviously, this is the counter of the Father and Daughter Wedding Songs. I know that sons are also very attached to mothers. That’s how I see it in from my brothers too. Mothers are also emotional when their sons get married because before they have been caring for their boy, and now there will be someone to replace their part in their son’s life. Someone who would cook for the son, prepare everything, tell stories with and most especially someone that would show so much love for their son.

These are songs that suits as Father Daughter Wedding Songs or Father Daughter Wedding Dance Songs and Mother Son Wedding Songs.
