So my father daughter dance has been one of those things that I have dreamet about my wedding forever (besides marrying my amazing husband of course hehe)
I wanted something country. I wanted a song that fit us, and that wasnt overly done.I also didnt really want a song that was too sappy.. I dont want people to be sad, its a happy event!
Im really afraid to cry in front of a bunch of people, so I thought about doing a funner song like, “My Girl” from the temptaions. But it just doesnt have much feeling to that song.I might as well face it, Im sure I will cry so might as well pick a song I love lol.
I played it for my mom when she was helping me pick out some of our music, and we both about cryed (…dangit) She said that had to be the one! I think so too 🙂
How do you feel when your at a wedding and people play sappy songs? lol is it uncomfurtable?
I havent told my dad yet, I think he will like it though! He’s very much the dad that didnt want me to grow up and leave. Thought I’d stay at home forever lol 🙂 Dang he was so overly protective too :pHe’s still the biggest worry wort.
Is it weird that I picked out our song? Is that something the dad should do? What did you pick? and tell me about your dance 🙂
@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 =)
@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 🙂 I want it to be a happy moment, not a sad one.
I think sappy can be a good thing 🙂 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. 😉
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.
“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 🙂
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 😉
