Father of the bride’s only ‘requirement’ is choreographing special wedding day dance: ‘He practiced every day’

A father of the bride had a touching request for his daughter on her wedding day, and the footage is bringing TikTok to tears.

TikToker Katelyn Nassar (@katelynfletcher) gained over 2.7 million views when she uploaded a cut-down version of their special dance.

But TikTokers were so moved, they begged Katelyn to upload the full dance with original music — and they weren’t disappointed!

While we’ve seen emotional wedding footage go viral before — like this bride and groom who honored their mother with cancer by shaving their heads at the reception — this father-daughter dance has people tapping their toes and grabbing the tissues!

In the video, Katelyn looks back on her special day with a teary look on her face.

“When my dad’s only requirement for my wedding was doing this,” she writes before cutting to their dance. “He practiced every day,” she adds.

Over the footage plays the song “Slipping Through My Fingers” from Mamma Mia!, performed by Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried.

But users loved this first video and Katelyn’s dad so much, they begged to see the full video with the original audio — and thankfully, Katelyn obliged!

In the full video, we hear “Hound Dog” by Elvis Presley, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson, “I Got You (I Feel Good)” by James Brown, and so many more.

TikTokers were blown away — not only by the pair’s impressive dance skills but also by their beautiful relationship.

“Here I go crying over strangers again,” one user wrote.

“Your dad is amazing. You are blessed beyond measure,” another commented.

“The fact that HE requested to do that dance speaks volumes,” wrote one user.

“OK, I cried so hard. You must’ve had the most fun practicing this,” another user added.

“Your dad is incredible for doing that for you. Definitely, you are very blessed to have a dad like that. [That] was awesome,” wrote another user.

“You guys are the cutest!!! What an awesome moment for both of you. Thank you for sharing!!!” one user commented.

“Great fathers need to be celebrated,” commented another.

Katelyn and her dad’s special bond reminds us all to cherish one another every day — and to get up and dance once in a while with the people we love!
