Our Funny Father Daughter Dance Ever

It’s my wedding anniversary week! 🙂 Tomorrow is our actual wedding anniversary so during this week I always love to share a few of my favorite memories from our wedding.

Funny father daughter dance!

Funny Father Daughter Dance

When I was in college, my dad saw a video of a funny, choreographed father daughter dance at a wedding. He emailed it to me and said “If you ever get married, we’re totally doing this!” He wanted to do the best father daughter dance ever!

Fast forward many years to when Rishi proposed. After calling my dad to tell him the good news he replied with – we better get going on this dance!

I’m lucky enough that my dad is a musician for a living so we picked out some songs and he arranged the whole thing. We searched the internet for the choreography to some songs and I made up the rest.

And then we practiced.

My dad enlisted the help of one of his coworkers to practice with him during their lunch break and I would practice at home by myself. My dad’s not a born dancer so for him to do this dance (and be excited about it) was so much fun! My dad is the BEST.

We got together only like twice to run through the whole thing (over and over and over again). My mom, sister and Rishi were there to watch us and critique us so we could fix and change things. Other than those 3, nobody else knew what we were doing! I had mentioned to a few friends to be sure to watch the father daughter dance since I knew they would be the type to cheer and holler but even my brother didn’t know we were doing this! 🙂

We had a few hiccups and missteps in the actual dance but man was it fun! I’m so glad we did a fun father daughter dance and I will treasure this memory my whole life.

Check it out below and let me know what you think!
