- Wedding: October 2011
When I say “surrogate” I mean my moms boyfriend of over 10 years who has been more of a father to me than the one listed on my birth certificate. He is giving me away and doing all the other father of the bride duties (i.e. chipping in a good chunk of change for the reception). He is a pretty shy guy and I know he’s not thrilled about the father/daughter dance concept. He would be oober uncomfortable being on display infront of all those people.
Now, I would personally be fine foregoing the parent dances all together but I know that my FMIL is really looking forward to her dance and I totally respect that. I feel like it would look weird if they did their dance but there was no parent dance for me (my moms not really into dancing either). So my resolution to this is to try to find an upbeat partyesque country song (Pops LOOOVES country, but more of the classics than the currents) that can be my father/daughter dance. We will invite all of our guests to dance with us so Pops wont have to be on display.
Now, I just need to find the right song. Any suggestions?
