Anyone have any suggestions for the Father Daughter Dance? My father and I haven’t always been the closest (not that we have a bad relationship or anything) and I feel a lot of the typical songs don’t really fit our relationship. Anyone using an alternitive to the main butterfly kisses, I loved her first or my little girl? (I do love all 3, but just dont fit my situation)

I’m using I Loved Her First even though my dad and I can have a very strained relationship at times… Regardless of anything, I do know he loved me

We’re doing “Isn’t She Lovely”- Stevie Wonder. Very cute and meaningful song without being too sappy and has a good beat to it!

We’re using Somewhere Over the Rainbow- the Ukele version.

I loved her first is another good one! I really do love My little girl and my dad and I use to listen to a lot of Tim McGraw when I was little…so it may work.
Isn’t She Lovely is a great suggestion! I hadn’t thought about that one and It’s one of my fav’s! Thanks! 🙂
Somewhere Over the Rainbow is another good one, but my Fiance is using it for him and his mom. 🙂

Commenting to come check out the suggestions! I’m close with my father but some of the song lyrics are super creepy. I’m thinking of Isn’t she lovely or Daughter because they are fun and not sappy and creepy.

We’re doing Brown Eyed Girl and cutting it off before it gets creeeppyyyyyyy. There’s a part with just music where it transitions into talking about doin’ it so we’ll stop before that, lol. It’s a really good song up until that point and pretty fast paced and fun so it might be good for you guys.

I am between these songs;
Daughter – Loudon Wainwright III (these lyrics best describe us)
Tiny Dancer – Elton John
In My Life – The Beatles
The Way you Look Tonight – Frank Sinatra
Wonderful Tonight – Eric Clapton
Landslide – Dixie Chicks
I’ll Stand By You – The Pretenders (we both love The Pretenders)
Lynryd Skynyrd – Simple man
Not sure if any of those are too weird. I wish I knew what I was picking!

This is cheesy as hell, but I am thinking about using it because EVERYTHING else makes me cry.

My dad and sister danced to My girl, but there’s a Rolling Stones version, so it was really good because my dad loves them. I think I’m going to make him dance to Loudon Wainwright – Daughter because it totally works for us but *hopefully* I can get through it without bawling like a baby.
He’s also a huge Led Zepellin fan and I was thinking D’yer Maker, which is my favorite song of theirs. Not totally appropriate based on the lyrics, but are people going to be analyzing it that hard?

I’m using unforgettable by Nat King Cole. It’s really cute and not at all sappy.
