    I need help thinking of a parent's dance song!
    We are having groom/mother and bride /father dance at the same time.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!!

      When our brides ask us this question, we always recommend "Shower the People" (James Taylor). Brides ALWAYS comment afterwards that the song was PERFECT.

      This is especially true since your parents are probably James Taylor fans (or at least know of him since he's been around a while).

      Oh, father and mother, sister and brother
      If it feels nice, dont think twice

      Just shower the people you love with love
      Show them the way that you feel
      Things are gonna work out fine if you only will
      Shower the people you love with love

      Things are gonna be much better if you only will

          lol, I'm not sure what fiance would think about that one!
          I found this one so far: Jamie Cullum - "These are the Days." It seems appropriate.
          My fiance really wants "Landslide," but the Smashing Pumpkins version.

            OK, I have a suggestion: The song "Heavenly Day" by Patty Griffin. It is a perfect wedding song, it doesn't talk about being in love with the person so I think it works for a parents song, and I think I will use it too! Here are the lyrics:

            "Heavenly Day"

            Oh heavenly day, all the clouds blew away
            Got no trouble today with anyone
            The smile on your face I live only to see
            It's enough for me, baby, it's enough for me
            Oh, heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

            Tomorrow may rain with sorrow
            Here's a little time we can borrow
            Forget all our troubles in these moments so few
            All we've got right now, the only thing that
            All we really have to do
            Is have ourselves a heavenly day
            Lay here and watch the trees sway
            Oh, can't see no other way, no way, no way
            Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

            No one at my shoulder bringing me fears
            Got no clouds up above me bringing me tears
            Got nothing to tell you, I've got nothing much to say
            Only I'm glad to be here with you
            On this heavenly, heavenly, heavenly, heavenly
            Heavenly day, all the trouble's gone away
            Oh, for a while anyway, for a while anyway
            Heavenly day, heavenly day, heavenly day

            We did the combined dance as well and used John Mayers song "Daughters". Very fitting IMO. The song still kind of tears me up...

              I like The Beattles "In My Life" or Billy Joel "Just the Way You Are"

                  Does anyone have any other suggestions for a combined parent dance? We are thinking about having our father/daughter and mother/son dance together, but I can’t seem to find a song I like. And it can't be country. I like country but the other 3 don't.

                    We did a combined dance and my Dad picked the song. He chose Paul McCartney's "Listen to What the Man Said". He didn't like any cheesy sweet songs and this one was upbeat so he wanted this one. He is also a very inexperienced and shy dancer so the song worked for us. My FI and his Mom could dance to anything so they didn't really care about the song itself. They were just happy to be partying :)
