    Anyone doing a mother daughter dance? My parents are separated and my mom would really like to have a dance with me too. What songs did you use? Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks ladies!

      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!

                Here is another cute dance with the bride, mom and brother: http://m.youtube.com...&feature=fvwrel 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
