Father/Daughter Dance

Recommended Posts

OK - time we got around to this...

 

So, there are many sappy father daughter dances. My dad is a ham - he is funny to watch dance and he's good enough that it definitely isn't embarrassing.

 

However, part of the "I'm having a destination wedding" is to not have to be so stuffy and traditional. I'm SUPER happy to have my dad walk me down the aisle and I know it means a ton to him. He's also (being a ham) going to give a sappy toast (or he'll try to be really funny which who knows how that will go over). Fine.

 

But, I don't want to dance to a sappy song. No Butterfly Kisses. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just not me and I'd also like to dance a fun, fast dance with my dad instead of sway.

 

My FI and I are dancing an argentine tango (we dance for a hobby) to the Assassins Tango from Mr. and Mrs. Smith (the cover to our wedding CD is a spoof on the movie poster - see here http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0356910/)

 

So, here are a few songs (I'm a bit stuck)...

 

-A Wink and a Smile by Harry Connick Jr. from Sleepless in Seattle

 

-Fly me to the Moon - Sinatra

 

-Too Marvelous For Words - Frank Sinatra

 

Anyone have any ideas?

that's such a great idea and it will keep everyones attention! All the songs seem like they would fit perfect. Have you asked your dad's oppinion? What about "that's Amore." It's one of my all time favorites. For our first wedding (huge reception) we typed out the song and rolled them like scrolls and everyone sang the song together at the end of dinner. It was awesome! stood and sang, we couldn't believe we had such a great response!

I haven't heard of any of them. I heard about Juan Carlos, saw his work, spoke to him and looked no further. It was well worth the extra money. His work is fresh and fabulous. Not to mention he is an extrordianry person!!!

That is a good idea.

 

 

 

I was wanting to combine the father/daughter with the mother/son. My FI, for some reason, wasn't thinking in those terms, but I don't think he'd considered that no one wants to watch people dance through three songs?

 

 

 

We're going to a very traditional wedding in a few weeks - he'll see it in action there.

Hey Natasha, I just saw this post. I really, really, really wanted to dance to "Take Care of My Baby" by Bobby Vee. My dad is also a big ham and we use to sing 50s songs together all the time. Its a faster song, which is why I chickened out and am not dancing to it. You should check it out. I think its cute, JMO!

OK - now my dad (at the last minute after all details with the DJ were finalized and the wedding CDs for each room finalized) has called to say he wants to dance to something sentimental, meaningful, and slow.

 

I really have an aversion to all those things above. Plus, I gave him a two months to provide input.

 

UGH - I really don't want to dance to butterfly kisses - it will kill me!

My dad and I have always loved the song "My Girl" by the temptations. It's on the faster side but you can still "slow dance" to it. Check it out - I think it would be cute!rockon.gif

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
