I don’t think so– most people don’t pay that much attention to the song selections (except for the announced ones) so most people probably wont notice.

I haven’t heard the song played at a wedding during the general dancing. I think it is a little bit of an odd request since it is your wedding. Maybe it depends on who made the request, but I would not do it if it were my wedding….and that would not be to be mean, it would jsut be bc it’s my wedding and they can dance to one of the other songs that the DJ plays during the ceremony. 

If that song were to play, your guests would expect to see you dancing with your dad me thinks.

I’ve seen it done where all fathers and daughters in attendance are asked to come to the floor for a father/daughter dance. Could you do something like that and allow your sister to dance with your father during that? You could do it after the formal dances so that no one is confused about why your sister is with your dad.

I think it is sweet. Will you have any other families with daughters and dad’s there? Could you have a “Dad and Daughter” dance that includes other people to?

I agree. If I were at a wedding and this song started playing, I’d be confused and thinking I should step off the dance floor or something. I can see it going the way of it being just the two of them out there…which would be kinda weird. Personally, I’m of the opinion that you give up this sort of thing once you do a courthouse wedding or a no-dancing reception. But if you’d like to do this for her that’s fine, but only if you’re okay with the thought that it may end up being just the two of them and you may have to explain about it.
