    Oh no! What do I do!? I told my dad that he could pick the song that him and I dance to at the wedding...big mistake! He just emailed me the song he chose and I totally hate it! What do I do!? Suck it up (I did tell him he could choose the song) or be honest?

        First, what song is it? Secondly, sorry but my opinion is you told him to pick and the song must mean something to him. Maybe you could ask what it means to him?

          I'm sorry if anyone likes this song, i don't mean to offend, but it's just not my taste. Its called "Dance With Me Daughter of Mine" by John McDermont I think.

            Here are the lyrics:


            Daughter of Mine



            These are the thoughts of a father
            On the wedding day of his daughter
            As his mind wanders back to the first time he held her
            He looks at her now, the same pride in his eyes
            As onto the dance floor they glide
            This is the dance of the bride and her father

            Dance with me daughter of mine
            On this your wedding day
            Dance with me daughter of mine
            You'll soon be going away
            I loved you since you first began
            Now you've found a new man
            But I love you so, and this you must know
            That my love won't falter
            So dance with me daughter
            Beautiful daughter of mine

            We walk down the aisle
            On my face there's a smile
            But deep in my heart there's a tear
            Our friends and relations are here in the church
            With smiles on their faces they stare
            As we walk t'ward the man who has stolen your heart
            And to whom I must give you away
            But I wish you love and happiness too
            On this your wedding day

            Chorus

            The dance has begun
            We twirl around the floor
            But I know you're not my little girl anymore
            A lovely young woman has taken her place
            And there's happiness written all over her face
            But always remember although we must part
            You may leave my arms but never my heart

            Chorus

              Yes, I know. I LOVE the lyrics. I just really dislike the sound of the song itself. I think I will just go for it, because I did give him the go ahead. I just really really dislike the overall sound. I spose it's just one song. And it does mean something to me that he put the effort into finding a song. That itself means something to me, so I guess I just answered my own question.

                  Totally! Thanks ladies. I was being a baby to begin with! I just needed to take a second and realize that this is something he has put thought into and will have meaning to him. Now I love the song just because of that!

                    I think it is really cute that he put the time into choosing it! And the lyrics are really sweet. :)

                      I know what you mean about the "sound" of it! But the lyrics are very very nice - and it is just one song..........I think you are right to just go with it!
