The father/daughter dance is without question one of the highlights of any wedding reception. But these days it is more than just a sweet moment, it is also a time to have fun and entertain your guests. And, if you want to do more than the classic two-step, here are a couple of tips on how to make the moment memorable:
1. Start of with the slow dance: This is the cherished moment that will be immortalized in every photo album and wedding video. Pick a song that exemplifies how much your father means to you, such as the Temptations’ “My Girl,” and let the audience soak in the tender dance for about a minute.
2. Pick up the pace with an oldie but goodie: Here is the time that your dad can really show you how it was done back in the day. Chubby Checker’s “Twist,” or “ABC” by the Jackson 5 are just a couple songs that you and your dad can groove to.
3. Show him how it’s done with the latest chart topper: Teach your dad how to “Dougie.” Hey if it is good enough for the president, it will get your reception jumping.
