In a previous blog, we discussed why you should take dance lessons for your wedding. Our primary focus was on the importance of planning for your first dance with your spouse, but what about planning for the traditional father/daughter dance? This special moment with your dad should have just as much thought put into it as the first dance with your spouse. At Arthur Murray Dance Center, we have a few reasons why you should take ballroom dancing lessons for your wedding with your dad, too.

One Last Dance

Marriage changes a person’s life in many ways. One of the biggest changes can be in your identity. As you take a new last name and the title of wife, the way you relate to your family can change. While you’ll never lose your identity as a daughter, the father/daughter dance at your wedding can symbolize your “last dance” with your dad before you begin your new life with your spouse.

A Special Memory

Not only will the father/daughter dance at your wedding be a memory you will cherish, but taking ballroom dancing lessons with your dad will be a great way to spend time with your father before you get married. The months leading up to your wedding can be hectic, and your parents often contribute a lot of time and money to make your day special. Your dad will love the extra attention he’ll get when you spend time with him learning to ballroom dance.

Not A Dry Eye In The Room

Weddings are emotional, and it’s likely you’ll have a few cryers in the crowd no matter what. However, you could bring the whole room to tears with the perfect father/daughter dance. Your guests will love that you not only planned the first dance with your spouse, but that the father/daughter dance was as equally thoughtful and beautiful. Everyone loves to see the emotion between a father and his daughter as he gives her away on her wedding day. A special father/daughter dance will only add to the beauty of the day.
