Hive, I am a slacker bride. Our wedding is merely days away and there are still tasks that are unfinished. My biggest unfinished task is the music list. Yes”¦we are six days out from the wedding and our song selections are not finished.
We have a few less important songs to pick (cake-cutting song, music to play before the ceremony), but I am still at a loss as to what to play when I dance with my dad.
A few factors go into this decision:
1) I don’t want to use the phrase “daddy’s girl,” but something close to that would do. My dad and I have a great relationship, and I am having a really hard time finding a song for us that feels like it fits.
2) Father/child moments ALWAYS make me cry. I don’t know why, but moments between a dad and their child just get to me. Even this goodbye scene between Ariel and her dad makes me tear up nine times out of ten.
3) I don’t want to go to sappy with the song choice (because a sappy song will make me even more prone to an ugly cry).
I have a few songs in mind, but I can’t commit to any of them.
I can’t put my finger on why, but I like the story in this Darius Rucker song.
I know using this song for a father/daughter dance may not make any sense to most people, but when I was three I watched The Sound of Music every single day. On most of those days my dad would sit with me while I sang the songs.
I don’t know why I am hesitant to use this song. I loved N*SYNC, but I don’t know if I love it for a father/daughter song. Band aside, the lyrics in this song are great.
Which of these songs would you pick? Do you have any father/daughter song suggestions for me?
