Well, if it helps, none of the weddings I’ve ever been to (and I’m in the double digits) has ever used that song for the father-daughter dance. πŸ™‚

It’ll be great since it means so much to him! I also have not seen anyone dance with their dad to that song.

Two things.

1. The one cliche I DID NOT WANT and even spent time telling people “the only thing I know is I won’t have the cha cha slide” and my Mother-In-Law has requested it and we will oblige– ugh.


2. A bunch of our groomsmen work at a hotel and serve/bartend at weddings and I asked them this weekend what the most cliche songs were, and that one didn’t even make their top ten– if that makes you feel better. They said “I loved her first” is a guarantee at all weddings. (I told them my f-d dance is to the beatles)


I hope that helps make you feel better, I know the feeling!

I agree with Gemstone – I’ve never even heard it played at any weddings I’ve been at (much less for the father-daughter dance).

Also, there are so many things that I’m finding that I want that I thought would be unique and they totally aren’t – so you should do what you and your dad want πŸ™‚

haha, i can totally see my dad picking this same song, and i’ll inwardly groan but will of course go along with it, because i love him and how often does he get his say on anything wedding related? hmmm maybe i should start planting ideas in his head now for songs more to my liking?

That’s a classic (though I prefer the Bennett version!) and I was supposed to dance with my dad to it. I don’t think it’s so common! And if your dad wants it, let him have it πŸ™‚

Argh, reading this is stressing me out! My Fiance and I still have to pick our F/D dance and M/S dance songs… and send them to the DJ by TOMORROW! YIKES! I want something fun, not too sappy, but not too cliche either… @sironel, what were the other 9???

ha ha!  i wouldn’t worry too much about that.  father/daughter dances are meant to be cheesy (in a good way!) and i don’t think anyone is ever critical about song selection for them.  my parents also requested some totally cheesetastic elevator music that would normally go on anyone’s do-not-play list, but at the end of the day, it was also their wedding too!
