@alyssars1:  I don’t think it’s weird that you picked your song, though it never even crossed my mind to let my dad do it (mine would probably pick something way crazy lol) I also don’t feel uncomfortable as a guest watching a sappy father/daughter dance. I’ve heard some people say they get bored if it’s too long of a song but I usually end up watching/listening & crying

I listened to about 30 secs of the song & turned it off because I don’t want to cry right now & daddy songs make me cry more than anything but it sounded like a really sweet perfect song =)

I’m not getting married for another year and a half and I’ve had my song picked out since Day 1 of the engagement.

Your song is so sweet!

Yes you want a song that moves you in a way that you feel about your dad, I chose songs tht made me cry but fit for our relationship

@alyssars1:  I’m going with My Girl.. I’ve always known I would, don’t know why. It’s the only thing about my wedding I ever planned before I was engaged. It’s short, sweet, not sob-inducing and reminds me of my dad πŸ™‚ I want it to be a happy moment, not a sad one.

I think sappy can be a good thing πŸ™‚ It’s your father/daughter dance! Sappy is good.

I’m going with “Over the Rainbow” by IZ, not only because it’s beautiful, but because it’s a song my dad and I associate with some of our happiest times when I was younger. He doesn’t know it yet, either. I’m betting money that he’ll cry. πŸ˜‰

I dont think there’s anything strange about that at all.

I think I am either giong to do “Winter” by Tori Amos, or if I decide to do a silly one (wth Fiance and his mom’s dance happening at the same time) I think it’s going to be Lefty Frizzell – Mom and Dad’s Waltz. We are having a vintage wedding, and you really can’t get much more vintage than that!

I would totally bawl if I had a sappy song so I can’t do that. I haven’t really been to any weddings so I couldn’t say if it would make me uncomfortable. I think it sounds like you feel like this is the right song regardless, you konw? I would go for it.
I’m doing “My Best Friend” by Queen cause its got a real happy vibe and I don’t think it will make me cry, haha. I think its a great father/daughter song and we both LOVE Queen, so I think its perfect!

This is one of the toughest decisions I made for our wedding!  I don’t think it’s weird you picked it – my dad made me pick it!  Though he had veto power lol.  I’m going with wind beneath my wings.  I know it’s pretty common and overdone, which I wanted to stay away from, but it was the song that best described how I felt and wasn’t too sappy.

@alyssars1:  

 

“Father and Daughter” by Paul Simon. On our family road trips, my dad would put on hours of Simon and Garfunkel, so I thought it was really fitting. I haven’t told him yet, but I think he’ll really love it. I’m going to be a mess. I love my dad πŸ™‚

I just feel so incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life to show me how I’m supposed to be treated and supported. My dad means the world to me.

@alyssars1:  I picked the song for my dad and I too. We are going with “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. I knew that it was a song that fit our relationship really growing up. He’s always been my protective Papa Bear, and the one I loved first.

 

And It shouldn’t matter if it’s sappy! If it fits, it fits! Other people can’t judge since it’s your dance and your day πŸ˜‰

@alyssars1:  even if its not “the” song you should make sure it’s played so you and your dad can enjoy it πŸ™‚
