    My dad and his mom will be choosing the songs that we dance to. I'm so excited because it will be a surprise to us!

    My dad loves Eric Clapton, so I thought 'Wonderful Tonight' would be a cute surprise for our father/daughter dance.

    I have both my dads brothers attending and 1 is more frail but I will be dancing with the other. I'm dancing with both brothers bc 1 will bw walking me down the aisle. My youngest is the spitting image of my father so it will be with Luther Vandross song. My uncle it will be a song he chooses that he and my father loved.

    May I ask how you did a tribute song? I am trying to think of a way to honour my dad at my wedding. Did your husband and you dance to it? Or was it open to everyone?

    Neither of our Moms will be present so we have a tribute song for them. Angel - Sarah McLaughlin and for my dad I will dance with my baby brother to Dance With My Father - Luther Vandross.

    This was one of my contenders, but I went with Tim McGraw. The other was was Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. I had the hardest time finding the one for my husband since neither of them wanted to be the one to pick the song. The struggle is real, ladies!

    My fiance will be doing a dance with his mom and he will also be doing the father/daughter dance with my daughter. My dad won't be there (too much family drama to even bother inviting him). We haven't chose songs yet though.

    I love "I Hope You Dance" for a father daughter dance. It's got a country feel so great for any country brides (I am not, however, so I've vetoed it and haven't found a cover I like yet).

    It's so hard to pick songs I find!! They are reflecting on big moments in your life that have shaped you. I'm definitely following as well because I love to hear other people's ideas.

    I’m totally following this just cause the more song ideas, the better! I have a couple of songs I know I want to include, but I don’t have specific songs figured out yet

    I danced with my dad to Love You Forever by Ryan Huston as it holds such great significance to us. My husband danced with his mom to It Happens In A Heartbeat. Not sure who the artist is

    I had a father daughter dance with my dad and my step-dad. My dad's song was Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle, and my step-dad's song was My Wish by Rascal Flatts. My husband danced with his mom and their song was Stand by me I think..

    Yes we will be! Possibly the same song, we are still contemplating this idea though! Not sure our song yet! We're still putting together our DJ list.
