My fiancee’s nephew is mixing our first dance song together with both father/daughter dance songs so that each one flows into the next and the whole deal will be no longer than 6 minutes. We’ll start with our first dance, then we’ll each go grab our dad when we hear the second song start. So technically, we’re both dancing to all three songs, but here’s what we’ve picked:

Her father/daughter dance pick: Unforgettable by Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole

My pick: Blue Moon by The Platters (my dad used to sing this to me before bed when I was little. He would try to sing multiple parts at the same time, and it was always hilarious. I can’t wait!)

Aw, I like this thread! Not sure what FH wants to do for the mother/son dance, but I think I’ll do “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” with my dad.

crackktheskyy:  We danced to “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns n’ Roses. It was fun! We invited DH and his mom to dance with us, but the said they’d rather not dance “in the spotlight”.

crackktheskyy:  Father/Daughter dance = ‘My Little Girl’ – Tim McGraw.

Mother/son dance = ‘Simple Man’ – Shinedown’s version.

crackktheskyy:  Thanks! I’m really hoping it turns out nicely. I am very self-conscious about dancing in front of people, so I wanted to keep it as short as possible while still being able to savor the moment and honor our dads. I’m just hoping my super-clumsy self won’t fall over or rip my dress or something during an ill-advised attempt at dancing!

My dad and I danced to “To Sir, With Love” from the movie.  DH and MIL danced to a Beach Boys song…can’t think of the name, but it was cute 😉

my father passed away so i did a mother/daughter dance.  when DH and I’s first dance was finished, it rolled into My Wish by Rascall Flatts.  My mom came up to the dance floor, hugged and kissed DH then me.  Then we looked at each other for a few seconds before the music changed to Pink’s Let’s Get This Party Started where I had choreographed a dance for us. 

It was a huge hit with our guests.

crackktheskyy:  Yes!  That’s the one.  MIL got all teary and embarassed – so sweet!

Yeah, it’s from an older movie so not that popular.  The lyrics are great, though.

My father and I danced to Standy By Me – Ben E King and my DH and his mother danced to A Song For Mama – Boyz II Men.  I must say it was hard to pick a song that both partners liked, where all the words were appriopriate, beat wasn’t too slow or too fast and something pleasant that you won’t regret years down the road.
