- Wedding: Davis Island Garden Club
I am looking into music selections for our wedding and I am stuck on the father daughter dance. I am a very emotional person – seriously cant even watch weddings on tv without tearing up. My father is not looking forward to this dance, we are very very close and he says the weddig will be the worst day of his life becuase he doesnt want to give me away. I have seen all the lists of songs and most of the traditional ones turn me into a blubering mess. I definetly dont want to be ugly crying at my wedding, and if I loose it my dad probably will too. I think maybe going for a less emotional song or something a bit more upbeat might help.
I was wondering, were any of you expecting to be totally emotional? Did you and your dad hold it together? Or did you have a great big cry fest? And what songs did you all choose?

My dad has always been a hardass. Has been my entire life. He cried while walking me down the aisle and during our first dance. Through his tears he gave me the best life advice, “Have lots of sex, drugs and rock and roll.”<br /><br />It’s a moment that will mean a lot to me. My dad and I danced to Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Piano Guys and Gangnam Style. The latter is a bit of a family circle joke.

I am the same way! I cry over all sorts of emotional moments in tv, movies, and even commercials! I’m not a cry baby by any means just sentimental! 🙂 I am a daddy’s girl, too. He says whatever I choose will work but I’ve seen him choke up at the “butterfly kisses” song before, so it was hard to pick a song – knowing I’d be a wreck! I think we are going to start out with a pretty sappy song (one of the traditional ones) and then after about 45sec – 1min transition into “who put the bomb” by barry mann – it’s an old song that my Dad and I used to dance to when I was little. It means a lot to us, but is fun too! Hopefully not too many tears will ensue. My cousins dad did wear sunglasses during thier F/D dance because he knew he’d tear up!
