We combined our Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances into one because we don’t want to have too many "planned" moments.  We’ll be dancing to "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstong…  mainly because neither of us could come to a decision and that’s what our DJ suggested.  🙂

My Dad and I are dancing to "I Just Call To Say I Love You" by Stevie Wonder.  I used to sing that to him when I was little.  My Dad is a total ‘man’s man’ but agreed to take dance lessons with me – can’t wait!!

I think that my FI/FMIL may be dancing to "Hey Mama" by Boys to Men…that song has made him tear up in the past, so I think it would be very touching song for the both of them.

My dad and I danced to "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman. My mom helped my dad pick it out and I guess when he first saw the music video he started crying. The first time I heard it was during our dance! So I started crying too! It’s such a beautiful song about a dad cherishing every moment he has with his daughter before she’s all grown up. DH and his mom danced to "With or Without You" by U2. They’re both big fans and MIL got a kick out of it.

Our father/daughter song will be ‘Butterfly Kisses’. I know it’s probably way overdone, but that has been Dad and my song since I was little. FI hasn’t picked his mother/son song yet.

I’m leaning towards "Isn’t She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder for our father/daughter dance.  FI hasn’t picked mother/son song yet.  I think our first dance will be to either I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, Bubbley by Colbie Callie, or Lucky by both of them.  We’re also kicking around some of the more traditional choices like The Way You Look Tonight, or something like that.

We combined our Mother-Son and Fatther-Daughter dances, adn danced to “There’ll You’ll Be”. his mother passed away from cancer and he danced with his grandmother instead. The lyrics of the song worked well for his situation.

For the Father + Daughter dance, I chose “Daddy” by Beyonce. My father never heard the song but to me it was a huge representation of my love and respect for my father.

For the Mother + Son dance, my DH chose “Mother / Father” by Musiq Soulchild. I think a part of the song represented their relationship but i think he chose it because he liked the song.

We don’t really have those set dances over here, though if I was to choose a daddy/daughter song, I’d choose Walking On The Moon by The Police. “Whaaaaat?” I hear you say? He used to hold me as a baby when I wouldn’t sleep walking around my room singing “I hope my legs don’t break, walking ’round the room” . I figured it was cute. May even ask for it now! lol

@Gerbera…that’s what I’m dancing to with my pops!  It’s such a great song, so happy.  I need to talk to fiance about combining, I think it would flow better if the mother/groom dance and father/bride dance happened at the same time.
