- Wedding: August 2013
Hi bees. I need help. I am about three weeks away from the wedding day and I still haven’t decided on a proper father daughter dance. My father passed away 4 years ago. We were very close and he was the best father a girl could ask for, me and my sister were his whole world. It is so hard not having him there on such an important day. With all that being said I have asked my godfather to walk me down the aisle and to do the father daughter dance with me. He is very important to me, helped raised me when I was young, and has always been a father figure in my life as well. So much in fact that when only dad was sick he promised my dad that he would watch out for his girls and be there for us when we needed him.
( I am very sorry that this is so long) I have narrowed my choices to two songs but keep going back and forth between the two songs. The first one is “red Robin” by Clark Richards and it is a touching song that describes my relationship with my dad perfectly. But it his definitely a tear jerking song .. So much of me wants to do this Song. It pulls at my heart every time I hear it .. It wven made my diance tear up and he never cries! But I am worried that it may be a bit to emotional for a wedding and I don’t want to hurt my godfathers feelings.
The second choice is my girl… More up beat , fun song that means a lot to my godfather and I. It brings back memories of being young and watching that moving with him and my godmother every weekend for a year straight, we would all pile on the bed and have my girl marathons Together. But I almost feel like I would be completely removing my father from this special moment.
They are both so important to me that during my Quinceanera I had two dances one with my father and the second with my godfather.
which would you choose in my position. I am so torn. So much of my heart wants to do Res Robin but I do not want to make anyone uncomfortable or make it a sad moment.
