My father passed away ten years ago. Originally, I was going to just skip the father/daughter dance at our reception. However, I have grown very close to both my future Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law.
I decided to ask my future Father-In-Law to do a first dance with me. He was so touched that he got teary eyed. I knew that I had made the right decision by his reaction and mine!
Now, I am just trying to find the right song for us to dance to. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Are you looking at a slow reminiscent song or are you looking for a more happy upbeat song? I’ve got a whole list of songs I’ve compiled for my wedding, and it’s too much to post here, but if you’d like to see it, I could email it to you. Just get in touch with me at [email protected] and I’ll send it to you!

Darling Husband and his mom danced to ‘God Only Knows’ by the Beach Boys, but there is also a nice version by Petra Haden.

- Wedding: May 2017 - Ocean front
This post is older….. but I’m going to ask my Father-In-Law to dance w me as my dad passed from cancer and my FH dad reminds me alot of my dad. I’m hoping he’ll be honored but I haven’t conjured up the nerve to ask cuz I know I will bawl my eyes out but it’s fast approaching so I guess I better make my move soon!! I still need to figure out a song as well…. suggestions much appreciated! :+)
