I’m having a hard time choosing a song for the father-daughter dance. My “daddy” is my step-dad, but I have his last name and all that jazz. I do not have a relationship with my biological father at all. However, my stepdad didn’t really “raise” me. He and my mom married right after my high school graduation.
Most of the “typical” songs for this dance involve things like childhood memories, etc. and I just don’t have those. I don’t think it’s appropriate to have a song about how he tucked me in and taught me how to ride a bike, yada yada yada because that’s not the case.
I don’t even really want to do a father-daughter dance because they always turn me into an emotional mess (yep, daddy issues) and I literally ran out of the room during the father-daughter dance at my step-sister’s wedding (not my proudest moment, admittedly). My mom said it would mean a lot to my dad to do this dance, so that’s the only reason I agreed to it in the first place.
I’ve thought about “What a Wonderful World” but I’d like to hear some other options, preferrably not typical “daddy” songs, as those will undoubtedly cause a complete and total, ugly-cry filled emotional breakdown on my part.
