Until I was in high school my dad wasn’t really in my life at all. When my mom remarried, my step dad became one of the best things that ever happened to our family. I want our first dance song to be a meaningful time where the song is a ‘thank you’ for becoming the father I never had. Does anyone have any suggestions?

MrsKD123: Does your dad have a band that he loves or songs that have meaning for him? My dad is a huuuuge music lover so I wanted it to be something he would love and that meant something to him. He’s more of a classic rock kind of guy and a little hippyish so I knew I had my work cut out for me to find something.
My mom remarried when I was 4 so my stepdad is the only dad I have ever known. He is a huuuuuge Grateful Dead fan and used to travel the country with his friends and his sister (my aunt) to go to their shows. When I was thinking of songs I immediately knew it would be a Grateful Dead song. I picked “I Will Take You Home” and I showed my mom and my aunt what I chose months before and they were both speechless and of course cried. I didn’t tell my dad what I chose til the day of the wedding and as he was coming towards the dance floor he started bawling and kept saying “no no no no how did you know? how how how no no no”. The song still gives me chills and makes me cry and so many of our guests were tearing up. It was an amazing moment.

Also, the song I picked for my husband and his mom that she still cries every time she hears it was a Jim Brickman and Lady Antebellum song called “Never Alone”. Really beautiful too.

MrsKD123: I love the song “Didn’t Have To Be” by Brad Paisly. It’s a song about a step dad.
Here’s a link to the song on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjO1F6oCab8
Some of the lyrics:
When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new<br />And it always winds up being more like a job interview<br />My momma used to wonder if she’d ever meet someone<br />Who wouldn’t find out about me and then turn around and run
I met the man I call my Dad when I was five years old<br />He took my Mom out to a movie and for once I got to go<br />A few months later I remember lying there in bed<br />I overheard him pop the question and I prayed that she’d say yes
And then all of a sudden oh it seemed so strange to me<br />How we went from somethings missing to a family<br />Lookin’ back all I can say about all the things he did for me<br />Is I hope I’m at least half the Dad that he didn’t have to be
