Worst day of my life was trying to dance with my mom for my wedding. My goodness that was horrible. I don't have a song choice but I would go with a slow song with a steady beat. I am a good dancer as long as good dancing is judged as something that resembles someone moving back and forth like a wounded walrus.


Pick a song and try to practice with your daughter a little bit before the wedding. It will not be too bad. 30 seconds after the dance is over, the only two that will remember it will be you and your daughter.



Unless of course somebody is video recording it on their iPhone and it and it shows up on Youtube the next day. :covri:

i am not a country fan by any means but this damn song gets me every time. a little over your budget, but it seems apropos for the situation.

As a "daddy's girl" I can tell you all she wants is for you to be out there with her looking into her eyes with pride and love. Nothing else matters.

Drink a lot. Eat some acid. Don't kid yourself about dancing being worthwhile and pay for all the booze.

Are you in charge of picking the song?

'Cause for me, since it would be her wedding I would let her choose what she wants to dance to and do anything she asked. If she wanted one of those crazy choreographed things, then for that song I do what she wants and look silly but make her happy. If she wants a slow song so we can just dance slowly to a meaningful song, then that's what I do.

If I have to pick I would think of songs that have meaning for us, not necessarily ones that have words that mean something but are not special to us. For my middle daughter, Bulls on Parade has meaning for us because we would listen to that song many times when I was driving her to school and we made up our own silly lyrics to it and rocked out in the car. For my youngest right now (she's only 4) she loves Video Killed the Radio Star so that might be it, but we have lots of time to have another song usurp that one.

And of course even if you're the one picking the songs, run the songs by her unless you are certain she would agree with your choice. It is her day after all. :)
