I haven’t discussed it with my dad yet, but I’m pretty sure he’ll want to do My Girl, and I think it’s a cute one.

I have a pretty good relationship with my father these days, but I know what you mean about sobbing on the dance floor ;). I’m afraid I’m going to be a wreck no matter what song I pick!

My dad used to sing I walk through the Garden to me when I was little, so I picked that one, and he actually had the opportunity to use my Pastor’s recording studio to record it. So we will be dancing to him singing!

I am planning on “Me and My Shadow” by Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. Not very traditional to say the least but my dad would call me shadow as a kid and always sang the chorus of the song, so for us it is super appropriate…he won’t know until the music starts playing what we are dancing to. I think he’ll get a kick out of it 🙂

My mom asked us to do wind beneath my wings.  Yeah, could you get any more tear-jerky?  Jeez.  I’m sure I’ll be bawling the whole time.

Me and my dad danced to “Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman. It’s a song along the same lines of Butterfly Kisses. My dad cried when he first heard the song, and then I cried when I first heard it during our dance. It was perfect.

We are dancing to You Raise me Up – totally corny, but perfect for us, and our band plays it.

How about In My Life by the Beatles?

I have a not so smooth relationship and thought about ditching it all together.  In the end, i let him pick the song and he chose “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder.
