My father wants to do the chicken dance for just this reason. We have decided to dance to “Sunrise, Sunset” from Fiddler on the Roof. We started listening to it everyday so that we are sort of desensitized to it by the time the day comes, and hopefully we don’t cry like small children. 

Good luck!

I Loved Her First by Heartland.  It makes me cry every time.

We’re using “My little girl” by Tim Mcgraw, though since i picked that i can barely listen to it without crying so i can’t imagine what the wedding day will be like!

This may not be what you are looking for but the song is called butterfly kisses.  It is really beautiful and always makes me cry…. but in a happy way of course lol

We did a joing mother/son and father/daughter dance to Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.

I am VERY close with my dad as well and teared up just thinking about him walking me down the aisle and dancing with him. However when it came time for both I was just so happy that I didn’t cry and just really really enjoyed it.

If we had done a father/daughter dance by itself we probably would have done “Wind Beneath My Wings” which would have really had me sobbing. My sister and I sang that for my dad on his 60th birthday about 8 years ago and everyone at the party was in tears.

We just did a joint mother/father dance with My Wish by Rascall Flats. We honestly didn’t even pay attention to the music as we talked the whole time.

We’re having Come Sail Away by Styx for the parent/kid dance.  It gets fast, so that cheers things up.  I’m a Ramones kind of girl and most trad father/daughter dance songs have kind of creepy undertones to me…

There are lists of songs for every wedding moment imaginable!

I’m walking down the aisle to “Daddy” by Kendall Payne, it is a tear-jerker! My mom and I cried when we heard it and I knew it was perfect. I know a lot of the comments said that they were gonna use it for the father-daughter dance. I’ll be dancing w my dad to “A song for my daughter” by Ray Allaire. I liked it because it has an old fashioned sound and the lyrics are beautiful. My dad loved it too!

We used “You’ve Got a Friend,” by James Taylor. And I agree with PP, the key is to listen to it until you’re desensitized!

We are dancing to My Girl by the Temptations. It’s a faster paced song, so hopefully it will be minimal crying.
