My Father passed away in 2009 and will not be here to give me away. I am having my brother walk me down the aisle. I was going to forgo the dance but decided it would be special to dance with my brother. My mother also passed away last year so we are all we have left for one another. I am considered different things. I thought it would be nice to do a dance either of me and my brother, and have the dj announce it as a tribute to my dad (a song we grew up on, or a song that reminds us of my dad, OR a song that I would have liked to dance with my dad too(since it should be about me and my dad) and then have a video of me and my dad in the background. Or should I do a brother/sister dance? OR should I have a video of pictures in the background during the cermony while we walk down together? These are my ideas…please let me know what you think OR if you have any other ideas. I want it to be special!!!!! I want it to honor them as well!

@JamieLeigh85: I’m sorry to hear about your mom and dad. My father passed away in 2000 when I was 16. I always thought about how much I would miss him when I got married and I am def feeling that now. My brother is walking me down the aisle and we’re going to do a brother sister dance. The song I feel like decribes the relationship with both my brother and my dad. It’s Faith Hill’s “There you ‘ll be”. I know it’s going to be super sappy so we’re going right into a semi-choreographed dance to Usher’s Yeah. it’s very much my brother and I.
I think you should do what feels right to you. If you want to have a video than go for it!

Oh gosh. I’m so sorry to hear about your parents. I have lost my mom and my brother. Not having them around for the wedding is so hard. I love your idea to have a video of your dad and you in the back ground during the dance with you and your brother. How sweet.

@Soon2bSykes: People say not to do anything emotional, but I feel like it’s my day so I should do what I want. I thought about Faith Hill’s there you will be! I’ve heard it should be about the love of my Fiance and I but I would love to be able to make it about my father and I for this dance, as the my Fiance will have a dance with his mom(that is not about us). I like how you too are going into another song to lighten it up a little!!
