I think we’re going to go with “That’s How Strong My Love Is” by Otis Redding. My dad kind of liked “Child of Mine” by Carole King, but I’m not too crazy about it.

Me and my dad are dancing to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. It’s more about wanting the best for someone, and wishing them happiness as opposed to being mushy a “i love you so much” song.

I LOVE “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle but it’s definitely cliche and probably way over done. It’s just always been a song I’ve related to from the first time I heard it (which was probably at least 15 years ago!) I’ve cried to it every time and I can’t imagine dancing to anything else with my dad. BUT, considering how much it makes me cry & knowing how emotional I’ll be on my wedding day, I can’t say I’m going to go with it. I haven’t started looking for alternatives yet so I’m hoping something else really jumps out at me!

I think my dad and I are going to start off with “Hit the Road Jack” by Ray Charles…when I was little he and I would sing that in the car ALL the time. I know it’s a very different song for a wedding, more of a special moment between the two of us! Then after 15 seconds or so of that we will either dance to “Stealing Cinderella” by Chuck Wicks or “It won’t be like this for long” by Darius Rucker. I haven’t chosen between those two yet!

@soontobemrsm11:  Oh man I LOVE Butterfly kissies…but I know I would be a huge pile of tears! It is such a beautiful song though.

@Razzmatazz:  I will undoubtedly be a ridiculous mess if that’s the song we go with. I think I’ll probably end up choosing something else honestly, even though I love it.  I love that you’re doing something different! I was thinking about doing the song “King of the Road” by Roger Miller for a reason similar to your choice, my dad used to play it on the harmonica and sing it all the time when I was growing up. It’s just definitely the most “our song” song that’s out there. I hope you love your dance song, it sounds amazing!

I was just at a wedding where the father and daughter danced to “My Girl”. It was really sweet and who doesn’t love that song?
