Father/Daughter and Mother/Son Dance

Recommended Posts

I've done a bit of searching and don't see a thread started yet for this topic.  We don't really want to separate out the dance for Father/Daughter and Mother/Son, we want to just do one dance together.  You think this is ok? I know we are breaking the tradition, do you think the parents would be upset by this?  We haven't mentioned it to them yet....

 

Does anyone have any ideas for songs would be good for this?  I've done a bit of searching and the only one I saw that I really like is My Wish by Rascal Flatts. 

 

Any other ideas!!??

 

Thanks!!

Great question Kjw!  With the limited time we have for our reception, I wanted to keep the dances and speeches to a minimum and thought about doing the father/daughter and mother/son dance at the same time. 

 

I am interested to see if others have also done it this way.

I think this is a great idea.  I think the best way to do it is to maybe start with the bride/father since thats the one everyone wants to see anyway, then maybe the DJ invites the groom and mom, then maybe other members of the wedding party and their significant others?  This was groom and mom are still important "features" of the dance, but its not awkward with just two couples?

II have seen the father/daughter combined with the mother/son, and it is really nice. That is what we will do. Then the bride's mom dances with the groom's dad (and any other family like that could join if the family situation is not quite as simple as that). We really like it that way because it is really like the families are both joining together. Plus it saves on time!

I saw it to "What a Wonderful World", but I will probably be using that for the ceremony. Anything in that sentimentality would work well though.

How "fun" are you looking for? If you search Youtube there are TONS of ideas there. I have spent hours on there looking at one after another.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
