I’m getting married next week – October 11 (YIKES!!!). I am looking for a good song to dance to with my father, as well as him with his mom. He would prefer not to dance by himself, so we’re doing it together.
I don’t want anything too old school. I feel like a lot of people are doing My Wish by Rascall Flatts for this nowadays and I don’t want to do the same ol’ song. We’re going for ‘different,’ I suppose…but meaningful and dance-able.
Makes no sense, I know. Any suggestions?
Our first dance is In My Life – Beatles. I’m walking down the aisle to Sister Hazel – This Kind of Love…also Lifehouse – You & Me will be played for my bridesmaids. Our Recessional is Stolen – Dashboard Confessionals. Just some ideas that I’m throwing out there to help you help me! 🙂

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 😉

"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 🙂

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". 🙂
And I am not doing a dance with my father, I have prepared a slideshow (surprise)…. 🙂
And congrats kyliehurst! I am also getting married October 11! 🙂 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.
