Today, we are paying tribute to every girl’s first love, the only man who escorts and guides every step of her life, who sets the standards of manhood and respect for her, and who inspires her dreams of ambitions. Today, we pay the tribute that every bride has to pay for her father.
It is no coincidence that traditions dictate a bride should be walked down the aisle with her father and have the first dance with him on her wedding day. Father-daughter relationship has always been special since the beginning of times. Being the first man and figure of security and reliability she opens her eyes to, a father is a great influence in a girl’s life. He lives to see her happy and fulfilled from the day she is born till the day he hands her to her husband.
By choosing her father to walk her down the aisle in her white wedding dress chosen from the best wedding dresses in Lebanon, the bride is honoring her old man, telling him in her own way: “Thank you for making me who I am, for leading me to where I am today. I owe you my past single life, and you’re the one I want to walk my last steps with before starting my life with a new man.”
During the wedding celebrations, the bride also offers her first dance to her father, a beautiful tradition that has almost been followed in every wedding. This emotional moment represents a father’s “blessing”, his accord to let his little girl go to someone else and live under another’s man protection and care. The dance reveals some kind of innocence, where the bride spins elegantly in her white bridal dress (one of the amazing bridal dresses in Lebanon at Esposa bridal shop), enjoying a last pure father-daughter bond, a memory so intense that both of them will treasure forever.
Although is it the bride who takes care of picking her father-daughter song usually, some of them like to involve their fathers in the choice of song to strengthen this bonding moment even more.
As a tribute to all the fathers out there, Esposa, one of the best bridal shops in Lebanon that offers bridal dresses in Lebanon, wedding dresses in Lebanon and bridesmaid dresses in Lebanon, has decided to recommend a list of songs that honor fathers on this special day and make some nice first-dance song ideas:
