    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 Click the image to open in full size.

    steve and i took dance classes for our first dance but then decided to dance like we were at an 8th grade dance

    we did "wonderful world" by louis armstrong...we kind of combined:

    father/daughter
    mother /son

    partway through song, invited:
    steve's dad to dance with me
    and steve danced with my mom
    his mom and my dance danced

    got that out of the way with one dance :)

      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!
