I think my FI are going to do the same thing with the mother/son dance at the same time. The song I’m considering is “What a Wonderful World”, but I don’t know if that fits your criteria for not being too sappy? I too am avoiding songs that are meant to be Father/Daughter dances because they seem a bit cheesy to me πŸ˜›

My dad and I are very similar to what you describe. We didn’t do a father/daughter dance because he is terrified of dancing, but I had considered the following songs for ours.

Time in a Bottle- Jim Croce

I Got a Name- Jim Croce

Changes- David Bowie  

Oh Very Young- Cat Stevens

Keep in mind, this music is very much from my Dad’s era so if he is not the same age it might not make sense πŸ™‚

How about God Only Knows by the Beach Boys. Sweet yet not too sappy. And prefect for your FI and his mom to come out to as well.

We are thinking “My Girl” though I really dont want to do something “expected or overdone” but at the same time I dont want anything SAPPY. My dad and I too do not have a lovey-dovey-Daddy’s Girl relationship! I grew up on “Tough Love” lol

What about you are the best thing?  Seems like that would work for a variety of wedding special dances πŸ™‚

FI vetoed it for our first dance, so I think I’m going to use it for the Recessional.

I love You Are the Best Thing by Ray Lamontagne. We also did a father-daughter/mother-son dance all in one and did it to “what a wonderful world”
