Parent Dances

Going along with the theme of music this week, I thought I'd share with you our parent dance choices:

For the Father/Daughter dance, my father picked "Father and Daughter" by Paul Simon. I knew my dad was going to pick this even before we talked about it way back at the beginning of last year. I love this song, and my friend and bridesmaid, Mandy, danced with her father to this last year at her wedding and it was just perfect.


For the Mother/Son dance, Chris' mom listenend to a TON of contenders before settling on Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man". After really listening to it, I thought it was a fantastic choice:


What are you dancing to for the Father/Daughter, Mother/Son dances?

Could you please pass a tissue! No just pass the whole box cuzz I've already started tearing up and the music hasn't even started playing! Fantastic choices.

Beautiful choices Chris and Laura!
One summer afternoon last year, my dad and I were lounging poolside and heard "Stand by Me" come on the radio to which we both blurted out "goooooood tune." I think Ben E. King made the decision for us haha. I am looking forward to this dance almost as much as my first dance with Mike. Almost.

Perfect choices!

Love these choices! We actually didn't do a father/daughter or mother/son dance, since we wanted more time for our guests to mingle and have fun. But my favorite father/daughter song is "I Loved Her First" by Heartland.

We haven't picked yet... I really love the idea of giving them the choice though!! I think we'll do that! :)

Those will be really great songs, by the way!

Aw, that Paul Simon song came out while I was in college, and my dad emailed it to me with the lyrics the first time he heard it. From that time forth it's been tears every time! I haven't even brought up the topic, but I also know he'll choose that one. I just hope I'm not a blubbering mess during the dance!

Great choices! My dad and I will be dancing to Coming Around Again by Carly Simon. She sings a live version that includes The Itsy Bitsy Spider, so he used to make me mixed tapes with that song when I was little. Hopefully I don't bawl my way through the entire song. My fiance briefly considered Simple Man, but ended up choosing the Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong version of Summertime.

I was about to do a post on this! Too funny!

I love the idea of parent dances. I think it enables your parents to have a moment alone, dancing with you on your wedding day. I'll be doing a father daughter dance with my dad and step-dad and my fiance will dance with his mom. I'm torn on what songs to choose, but I like "Because you loved me" by Celine Dion for my dance with my step-dad.
