Seriously so many decisions to be made still!
One being the father/daughter dance!
I was thinking I wanted one in Spanish, but cant narrow it down to one. Then I was thinking of maybe doing an english song and asking my brother to remix a salsa song towards the end (just because everyone knows my dad is a wicked dancer and I thought it would be cool).
So ya, I can’t narrow anything down! I woke up a few nights ago so excited because I had a dream about what song it would be and then I forgot it as soon as I woke up!
Which song will you be dancing?

I’m dancing to ‘CherryBomb’ by John Cougar Mellencamp. It’s a fast song and one we use to dance to all the time when i was a kid.

we danced to “i loved her first” by heartland – beautiful song but I cried through the whole thing. It came on in the car the other day and I cried even harder haha.

I think we’re going to use Rocky Racoon by the Beatles, we’ve been singing that song since I was a little girl around campfires. It may have NO emotional signficance (as far as a sweet song about a daddy loving his daughter) but it means the most to us personally…and all our close family will understand that! Everyone else can just be left pondering why we chose a song with so much deep drug reference and odd symbolism. 😉

I’m dancing to the song “I love” by Tom T Hall. He used to sing this to me when I was little, now he sings it to my nieces. It’s such a sweet song.

We are dancing to Heartland’s “I loved her first.” A real tear jerker, but I couldn’t find any other songs that were appropiate for dad and I.

We are dancing to Paul Simon’s Father and Daughter, which my dad chose. However, since my wedding is 2 days before Halloween, in the middle, the DJ is going to cut to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and we are going to do Thriller dance for a couple verses. I can’t believe I actually got my dad to agree to it, but I am looking forward to it so much!

We will be dancing to a Portuguese song, which one? I have no clue yet. I think it will be a waltz since my dad loves waltsing. I love your idea of mixing in some salsa beats to showcase yours and your dad’s move. Very cool!

We also did “I Loved Her First.” I let my dad 100% choose the song, so of course I was more than happy to dance to whatever he wanted. It made me…and just about everyone else in the room…cry.

My dad chose for us to dance to “Forever Young” by Rod Stewart. It was absolutely perfect. I think the lyrics are completely sweet and appropriate. I’ll never forget that dance with my dad- the whole time he talked about his memories of me as a baby, child, young girl, and a woman. It was perfect. Best wishes finding the right song for you and your dad 🙂
