Im in the same boat as you. I dont want anything like “daddy’s little girl” or that kind of thing. I’m stuck!  Maybe some other people will have some good suggestions for us! 🙂

Pick something very generic. “What A Wonderful World” or “I Hope You Dance” or something of that nature would be the most appropriate.

Well I’m kind of in the same boat…I am not close to my dad at all, but extremely close to moms boyfriend that she never married, but has been involved in my life for over 20 years….I know weird!

Any ways….

My mom will give me away & I always thought her Boyfriends togehter, but my dad is helping pay for the wedding, so I feel I want to include him…Do i let him and my mom walk me down the aisle and do my first dance w/moms Boyfriend (bc that would be less awkward than dancing w/my dad)  this is super stresful and I’m running out of time…wedding is in 5 weeks!!!!

I’m dancing a fairly fast, fun dance with my Dad for this reason.  Have you considered doing something less sentimental and more upbeat?

I’m not engaged yet, but have deeply discussed wedding plans in a few years. However, I understand this debochle. I don’t know my real father, and am not all too thrilled with my adoptive father right now. If need be, IE: falling out with adoptive father, I intend on having an Anniversaries dance. Instead of the father/daughter dance, the bride and groom take center stage and all couples are asked to dance with them, and as you dance you call off years together, and at the end, the last two couples dancing are the newlyweds and the couple who has been together the longest.

my fiance and i have experienced a lot of discord with his parents and we chose ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’, the Judy Collins version (a little slower for a slow dance) for his dance with his mother.  ‘To everything, turn turn turn, there is a season turn turn turn.’  It’s a beautiful song that i am sure we have all heard many times, but the words are stunningly beautiful and work very well to describe that life and relationships are not always perfect. ‘A time of love, a time of hate. A time of war, a time of peace, a time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing’.
