Wedding traditions vary from person to person and culture to culture, but one thing you can almost be certain of in American weddings is some form of a father-daughter dance.
While some people like to keep it simple, sharing a meaningful slow dance with their dads, others plan electric dance routines that leave the wedding guests stunned. Thanks to social media, we’re able to watch some of the most memorable father-daughter dances over and over again, which is undoubtedly what you’ll do with this one!
This father-daughter duo breaks out an energetic wedding dance to some of the world’s recent biggest hits.
When it comes to music and dance, the two art forms go hand-in-hand and play a huge part in bringing people together. The father-daughter dance tradition usually takes place after the bride and groom dance, but it wasn’t always that way. Originally, fathers would insist on having the first dance—until couples felt the need to change that tradition and reserve the first dance for themselves.
In this awesome father-daughter dance, they trick the wedding party and guests by starting off with a slow dance to “Everything I Do” by Brian Adams.
A little later, the music changes and the big surprise comes.
When the music switches to the theme from Space Jam theme, the wedding guests know they’re in for a treat!
From rock to hip-hop and country, the father-daughter dance duo has made dances to every category, with popular songs from the past giving people flashbacks to nostalgic memories related to the songs.
After briefly dancing to “Y’all Ready For This” and “Cotton-Eyed Joe” by Rednex, another popular song comes on triggering the father-daughter dance to take a hilarious turn.
When “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-a-Lot comes on, the father of the bride unexpectedly does some fierce twerking before “What Is Love” by Haddaway comes on and saves the day.
“What Is Love” is a song that many of us have jammed to, and this is no exception!
Once they breeze through a couple more popular songs, they break it down to”Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice before switching to “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer and pulling off his legendary signature dance move.
Each song brings a new father-daughter dance, with the classic song “Bye Bye Bye” to end the spectacular dance routine.
Rehearsing for this father-daughter dance must have been some hard work, as just remembering different dances to upwards of 20 songs is remarkable. People attending the wedding can’t help but cheer for the epic performance. They even get some pretty good footage of the wedding guests dancing at the very end!
People on the internet also loved the mix of song and dance, and the video went viral after Blanton Creative posted it to their YouTube channel back in 2017.
It’s one thing for a video to go viral when it’s posted to a channel with millions of subscribers, but when it’s posted to a page like Blanton Creative that only has just over 1,200 subscribers and still goes viral, you know it has to be good!
The exciting father-daughter wedding dance has been viewed over one million times, with 10,000 users who liked it.
