WOW! I am so glad this was brought up! I've been thinking of a Mother-Daughter dance, as my mother has been my only parental figure for most of my life.

 

And Every time I hear "Mama's song" by Carrie Underwood, I think of how perfect it would be.

 

My younger brother is walking me down the aisle.... as I asked him to when I was like 12y/o.

 

So I thought a mother/daughter dance would be nice for my mom. (My step dad and I are "close"... but not huggy-close... or "dance with each other with everyone watching" close....)

 

Anyways - I wasn't sure if a Mother/Daughter dance would be weird....? You never hear of it.... and you don't often hear of two women dancing together (I mean, without getting into a gay-marriage debate or anthing... Love is Love... But I mean... you know what I mean....)

I agree! I think its a cute Idea! And especially if your mom was your only parental  or genrally the only one that was a parent figure to you then I think its great!

 

Me and my dad didnt have the "best" relationship growing up. But we are close now. ( Now that I have moved out and we arent around eachother and fighting all the time lol) So I want to have "one " thing with him being the dance, And I figured Id have both my parents walk me down the aisle.

 

I asked my mom if its something she would want to do. Because I didnt know if she just wanted to watch me come down the aisle with my dad or if she wanted to be a part of it. At first she said to ask my dad, But then she thought about it more and decided she wished she had her mom and dad both walk her down the aisle at her wedding. So I will have them both walk me. Thankfully my parents still get along even though they are seperated. They still love eachother and im sure would still be together if they could get a long for more then short periods of time. But it is what it is. My dads "friend" or "gf" is coming to the wedding. And she is a great lady. I really like her, i feel bad though Because my mom is coming alone. I just hope drama doesnt unleash its self lol

When I heard Carrie Underwood's "Mama's song" it made me want to cry. It would be the perfect song. I also thought about singing it, but my emotions might get the best of me on that day. I love how the lyrics are bang on! I'm just trying to figure out when we would have this dance... Our first dance, then The father/dauther dance, then the Mother/son dance and the Mother/daughter dance seems like a lot of dances that people are just looking onwards and I wouldn't want them to get bored.

Strangely enough, its my mom and I that usually butt heads and in my dad's eyes, I'm his perfect angel. My parents do not get along very well, and I fear there will be an outburst at the wedding. But my FI and I have already had a talk with each of them separately to ensure that they would be adults and not cause a scene and realize that they are there to celebrate our love and union. My mom insists that she walk down the aisle with my dad and I, but this is something I would like to keep traditional. It is frustrating to always have to say no to her. But that is why I'm now considering a dance with her instead. Hopefully she feels that she is included and I'm not leaving her out.

Hey! The song really is perfect.  I've been thinking maybe doing a split... Like 1/2way through the father daughter dance have the song change and do 1/2 the "Mama's Song".... I feel like my step-dad would not take offense to this at all. I have no idea what song to dance with him with though... he only "came around" when I was 18y/o... so I was never "Daddy's little girl"... and I feel like so many songs are about "growing up" and "in daddy's eyes" etc.... not really appropriate...

 

Also, I don't know the first thing about "mixing" music... so I'm not sure how this will all work out.

I'm so glad I saw this post! I love the idea of a mother/daughter dance. My mother is a single parent and I think it would really mean the world to her to surprise her with a special dance. I agree with MelB though when I wonder, do you think people would think it would be weird? Two women slow dancing together? Also not trying to offend same sex partners, whom I support 100%!

What a great idea! I have never seen my dad dance in my LIFE, so I can only imagine how a daddy-daughter dance is going to go! LOL. My mom, on the other hand, is a musician and loves to get down (according to my aunt, she burned up the dance floor at the last wedding they went to). My parents are divorced, and I think this would be a great way to honor her! No serious dancing for us, maybe some James Brown! See this link below for a more lighthearted take:

Here is another cute dance with the bride, mom and brother:

On a related note, between the brother's sandals and the decor, I'm pretty sure that this wedding is in the bamboo room at NOW Jade. Have I finally gone over the destination wedding edge? LMAO

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
