So far we’ve settled on an orchestra version of “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” for my entrance and our first dance song will be “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John. Finding out what to dance with my dad to is going to be the hardest part because we both like funk and disco music and there’s really no father-daughter appropriate disco or funk songs.

Our first dance song is Crash into you- Dave Matthews band.

Recessional: A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes – Disney Philarmonic Orchestra

Omg I need to pick songs for all these things!?! Ceremony and first dance are already kicking my butt. And I’m going to foist father-daughter on my dad.
I do have a last dance idea though – Wonder of You by Elvis Presley. Love that song, and love that it’s a “slow dance” song but kind of upbeat. Seemed like a good last dance option.
