My dad is paying for our whole reception, and he has been the biggest form of emotional support to my Fiance and I throughout our relationship, I am not keen on the ‘Father Daughter’ dance but i do want to honor him some how, any ideas?

I can’t help you but I’ll read what other Bees suggest, because I too, would like something special with my dad, but we both won’t dance.

I think we’re still going to do a father-daughter dance, but we’ll combine it with a mother-son dance as well, just because I think it’s a little weird to single out my father and not my FI’s mother?
That said, my father is actually going to be our officiant 🙂 I’ve never been a very religious person but because both our families are pretty religious, we really thought we needed someone who could choose a few good readings and such. Out of everyone we know, my father is by far the person we trust the most, and on top of that, the person whose religious beliefs I respect the most. So I’m very excited to have such a special person officiating 🙂

@beautifullyboheamian: You could make a slideshow of you and your dad and play it to your dad’s favorite song.
Here is an article full of other suggestions too http://www.helium.com/items/709162-non-traditional-weddings-alternatives-to-the-father-daughter-dance

@beautifullyboheamian: Well how bought these?
-Slide show of pics of you and your Dad over the years with a song of your choice playing.
-A quiz between your Dad and new hubby and whoever wins gets the bride (I thought this was kinda neat bc the history of the father daughter dance is when the daughter leaves her dad and goes to her husband)
