I danced with my dad to Loudon Wainwright’s "Daughter" and we got so many compliments on the song the whole evening. It is a beautiful, sweet song.

My husband danced with his mom to Van Morrison’s "Have I Told You Lately." I think he finally decided on his song 2 days before the wedding!

Highly recommend Paul Simon’s "Father and Daughter" is touching without being sappy – and it has a good beat for dancing.

I really struggled with the mother-son song (and Fiance was no help) – "Wink and Smile" was the best I could come up with. Not too mushy πŸ˜‰

"What a Wonderful World."  It’s 2.5 minutes… which is pretty quick.  My dad was a wreck when we danced, he was crying so hard he couldn’t speak.  2 and a half minutes was plenty πŸ™‚

My Fiance is dancing to his mom to Boyz to Men, "A song for Momma"….not my favorite.  I was really pulling for Shinedowns "Simple Man".  πŸ™‚

And I am not doing a dance with my father, I have prepared a slideshow (surprise)…. πŸ™‚

 And congrats kyliehurst!  I am also getting married October 11!  πŸ™‚  It’s a good day!

(although kansas is calling for rain on that day….) eek!

We did "What a Wonderful World" as well and I loved it!  We did both dances at the same time like you want to do and I’m glad we did it that way.

We’re doing Lullaby (Goodnight my angel) by Billy Joel and You are the Sunshine of my life by Stevie Wonder for parent dances.  Good luck and congrats!
