I’m working on trying to figure out what song to dance to with my father. We both already know we are going to be crying, but also don’t want to be balling like babies! We’ve talked about Butterfly Kisses and Tim McGraw’s, My Little Girl, but we can’t even talk about it without cyring so we both know we’ll be crying pretty good while dancing. Any ideas, or what are you girls dancing to with your fathers??

We did “You’ve Got a Friend” by Carole King. My dad love Carole King so every time I hear her I think of him. And my dad pretty much is my best friend so it was great for us.

My good friend danced with her dad to “I get a kick out of you” – it was upbeat and great to watch. Not overly sappy or tear-jerking at all!

My dad and I have the same problem! We’re doing “Father and Daughter” by Paul Simon.

This is the second time I’m posting this today, but I think “the best day” by Taylor Swift is perrrrrfect!
My favorite part is the end
“and I love you for giving me your eyes
Standing back and watching me shine and
I didn’t know if you knew so I’m taking this chance to say
That I had the best day with you today”
I think it is sweet but not too over the top mushy gushy.

My stepdad and I are not very emotional people and we are kinda awkward so we’re dancing to “kind and generous” by natalie merchant. Oh and he loves Natalie Merchant!

Have you seen Offbeat Bride’s list of “non sappy father/daughter songs”? I don’t know if it’ll help you but it certainly helped me when we were still planning on doing dances (we ended up not doing them and just had fun chatting to our guests instead).

My grandfather and I are doing “Stand by me” My grandfather isnt super sappy but I sure am, Im sure we both will be crying but I think that makes it even more special of a moment!

My Dad and I are thinking of doing the Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show. We both enjoy it and it would be something fun that folks can dance to with us.
