My dad wants to use “Wonder of You” by Elvis for ours, and now I can’t listen to it without crying lol.

There Goes My Life – Kenny Chesney
My parents had me really young and they weren’t exactly expecting that. I headed to the East Coast after college, almost like the song.
We opened up the floor for all fathers and daughters to dance halfway through the song. I was pretty calm and having fun so this part didn’t have me as emotional as I feared until I saw that the fathers of two of my bridesmaids asked my Maid/Matron of Honor to dance. Her father passed away 6 weeks before the wedding. This had my whole bridal party in tears.

While Dad and I danced to something else, just before the reception broke up, the photographer dedicated Butterfly Kisses to Dad and I. We both bawled through the entire song.

I don’t think this girl is famous I’m not sure but I heard it at a backyard wedding at my neighbors house and it tugged the heartstrings. It might be towards a younger daughter though idk. Abby Anderson-Daddy he loves me. I love this song!

ibtyen : Daddys Little Girl by Kippi Brannon
We are using Tim McGraws song, but I nearly changed it last minute when I stumped onto the song by Kippi. I had never heard of her.

It has nothing to do with the song, and everything to do with the relationship. I was at a wedding this year where the father and daughter were crying as they danced…you could just see how much they loved each other. Couldn’t tell ya what song was playing, but that moment was so sweet it had me bawling. Maybe I’m just sensitive now that I have my own daughter, lol

Lullaby By Billy Joel! Its such a beautiful song I just love it. I have always sung it to my daughter since she was a baby. I just think the melody is so sweet and totally makes me cry. I really want to dance with my dad at my wedding to that song but I think maybe I should let him pick the song he wants to dance with me to.
