That would be really nice and a touching tribute.

I did the same thing – had the DJ call out a song “in honor of the bride’s father” – in my case though, it was an old 60s dance song he loved ( Wooly Bully) – everyone there who had known him gave a big whoop and jumped up to dance, so not at all depressing. Go for it!

That’s a really sweet way to honor your dad at your wedding.

@Robin_Sparkles:  A Friend of mine, her husband lost his grandfather about 7 months before the wedding, they did a similar tribute.

 They chose an Irish drinking song, that the grandfather really loved, and had everyone get onthe dance floor to honour his memory, and it was definitely one of the highllights of the wedding!

I think that would be touching and not at all depressing.

awwww this brings tears to my eyes and I think it’s a wonderful idea… I was wondering how to do the same thing. My father passed away a few years ago and I had chosen songs that I had wanted to dance with him to. I still wanted to do it.. it still makes me cry everytime I hear it but  I didn’t know how to let people know it was for him other than to place it in the program? I asked my son if he wanted to dance with me to the song I had chosen “Stealing Cinderella” by Chuck Wicks and my son listened to it and  said it is a very sad song and he wasn’t sure if he would be able to not bawl while dancing to it. So I said what if I asked my brother in law to dance with me do you think he would cry? He said I don’t know he’s a pretty big guy and they fall the hardest 🙂 I so Love my son. 

Thank you for the inspiration … I hope you don’t mind if I borrow it. The other song I had chosen was “I loved her first” by Heartland. And the third song I had chosen my Fiance is going to dance to it with her Dad <3 My little girl by Tim mcgraw

I think that’s a great idea.  Obviously it will be a little depressing because it points out that you lost your father, but at the same time, it’s so touching because it shows what an unbreakable bond you guys have.  I say go for it!

“Always On My Mind” is a breakup song. Sometimes you can get away with lesser-known song meanings, but everyone knows this song and so e guests will think it’s weird. The idea is fantastic; you just need a different song.
