First Dance – You Belong to Me Jason Wade

Father-Daughter – Little Miss Magic by Jimmy Buffet

My husband had no interest in the mother-son dance so we skipped it. I’d let you fiance and his mom be in charge of that song.

Our first dance was “Beyond the Sea” by Bobby Darin.

We only did the Father Daughter dance, and he chose “I loved her first” by Heartland. Cheesy, but my dad loved it. 🙂

“Angel Eyes” by The Jeff Healey Band.

We opted out of parent dances.

Wedding hasn’t happened yet, but we’re planning on having our first dance to At Last by Eva Cassidy.

I am thinking of going really old-school and having Daddy’s Little Girl for the first dance with my dad. Back at the time of my first wedding it was THE song for the father daughter dance, and I danced with him to that song in 1990!

We’re thinking of Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac and probably skipping both parent dances.

Say you won’t let go – James Arthur 

my dance with my dad was to stand by me. 

His dance with his mom was super random.

Did anyone do Moon River? I love the song and it’s a waltz but I worry it might be too “thin”

Our first dance was to “I Choose You” by Sara Barellis. I think I butchered her last name.. I can never spell it correctly.

Our first dance was a cover to “I Want To Grow Old With You” from the Wedding Singer. It was short, sweet, and goofy, which was exactly what we wanted.

Father-daughter dance was “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw because my dad has had that song picked out forever. Mother-son was “My Wish” by Rascall Flats.

Both of the parent dances were just played until the chorus and then faded out. We wanted to keep it all short and it worked great.

lucreziab :  That was a contender for a long time for us! It’s beautiful and I love it. I think it would be great.
