Dancing with Dad!

Recommended Posts

Can anyone think of a song that is from the daughter to the father? A lot of songs are from the father to the daughter. I would like to pick a song that embodies how I feel about what he has done for me. He isnt a music guy, so I cant think of a song that would mean anything to him from the past...hmmm.

DragonFly, I lost my mother 3 yrs ago she is my best friend in the world and I was thinking that I would dance with my stepfather to honor her in someway... at the same time I know that I will break my heart to do it. I not sure what to do, I already know that I am going to be upset, I am just not sure I want to make it worse. I don't know what to do...

First, let me say that I LOVE father/daughter songs - I have an itunes playlist called "daddy songs". There are so many that I love - many have been mentioned here. But, the one that I hope to dance to with my daughter at her wedding is called "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman. I can barely listen to it without tearing up - and I'm NOT a crier. It seriously kills me! My 3 year old and I already dance to it on occasion when no one is looking.

I'm so sorry...

...I would say to do it, even though it will be hard - I can't imagine you regretting have done it later.

Chrystal Shawanda - "You can let go" AWESOME song from a daughter's perspective

I dont know if it was on this thread or another, but Joanna recommended the song Daddy by Kendal Payne, and it is amazing. I can't believe how perfect it is, and have no idea how I am going to dance with dad to that song and not bawl my eyes out!

The song still makes me cry. I didn't cry during the dance because I felt really on display in that moment, but my dad cried a little!!! The song is amazing! I have been wondering a female singer with the style of Kendal Payne managed to excape my awareness before that, since I love that kind of music!

Thanks for sharing all your ideas....I totally need help with this! I'd like to choose a few songs and then have my dad pick the one.

Keep the ideas coming! :)

I picked - What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong... we had our father/daughter and mother/son dance at the same time... I really liked this song choice because it is a relatively short song (timewise) and it worked to do the dual dance thing.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
