9 Surprising and Sweet Parent Dance Songs for Weddings

Weddings are always an emotional occasion. They are especially touching event for your parents. Seeing your daughter or son get married is a really proud moment but it is also a poignant moment because your child is finally starting his or her own family. 
Therefore the parent dance is such a lovely moment and there are plenty of great songs out there to suit this occasion. We decided to give you a helping hand by selecting some of the more surprising parent dance songs for your Hudson Valley wedding.

Something New

There are plenty of great modern songs that suit parent dances really well. Perhaps Celine Dion’s A New Day Has Come would be something to suit your wedding. This is a really touching song because it was written for her newborn baby. Therefore it has the right type of feeling behind the song to suit this moment. You could also go with another brilliant female singer and pick Alicia Keys’ Not Even the King
You could also go with John Mayer’s Gravity. It is quite a moving song and many people can relate to the lyrics in many different ways. And if you want a really sweet, modern song you could keep in mind My Wish by Rascal Flatts. This is such a powerful song and the message behind it is something that all parents want their children to know, especially on such a big day.
Something From the Past
But there are plenty of great old classics to go with as well. The classic Elton John song Can You Feel the Love Tonight is one great example of a sweet and perhaps a little bit surprising parent dance song. You could also pick a classic song from one of the biggest pop groups of all time. The Beatles song All You Need Is Love could be a nice choice. It is a bit different and it will surely get everyone singing and dancing.

Many people also like to add a bit of old time glamour to their wedding. And there is nothing better than to include some classic big band music to your big day. Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me to the Moon is a great pick for a parent dance song. And if you are looking for a nice message then Randy Newman’s You’ve Got a Friend in Me is an excellent choice to make.
Creative and Cute

There is no need to play it safe with your wedding song music either. An experienced Hudson Valley wedding DJ can help you pick songs that tell a tale and keep the mood happy and relaxed. And if you are looking for a really creative pick for your parent dance then you can go with the Muppets’ Rainbow Connection.
