So! my mother will be walking me down the aisle (and rightfully so) she was a single mom and raised me alone… so needless to say its her right to walk me down….so… why the question of father daughter dances…well!!! 🙂
I have reunited w my dad and his family (whom I adore) and for the last 12 1/2 years we ve have a pretty good realtionship. Anyway I really wanted a father daughter dance because its something i thought I would never get because he was not around when I was growing up, anyway I started to listen to the “typical father daughter songs” as well as “best friend” type and nothing seems to feel right. And the songs I did find my dad doesnt seem to like (which is actually ok because I dont think I liked them either) He would like something slow which is also ok w me because i can barely move in my dress…lol…. can someone help me find a slow yet non mushy…non typical song my dad and I can dance too?

I don’t think the content of the song necessarily has to be about the relationship, honestly. My dad and I danced to “Something Good” from The Sound of Music (movie, not play), which was perfect for us because we both love that musical.
The song can just be something generally happy. What a Wonderful World (Louis B. Armstrong) always works.

I danced to the song my dad named me after, so that’s no help! But I really like the song, “Daughter” from the movie Knocked Up.

We’re dancing to “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts. It’s more about wanting happiness for someone and wishing them the best in life, rather than being a mushy-lovey song.
