So my wedding is about three weeks away, (can you tell I've been avoiding this subject?) and I need a father daughter dance song. My dad and I are not exactly close, and since my parents divorced when I was young and he remarried and started another family, he hasn't exactly been the father he should have been. My mom really took on the role of both parents for me. This is where my situation gets complicated. My fiance is doing a mother son dance and I know my dad's feelings will be hurt if then I skip a father daughter dance with him. My mom has a lot of anger toward my dad for not being there for me the way he should have, so not only would a sappy father daughter song be awkward, but my mom has also said she will have to leave the room for the father daughter dance. I hate making my mom feel that way and I don't want to hurt my dad either by skipping it after my fiance dances with his mom.
Has anyone had a similar situation? I would love any advice on this from suggestions for non sappy father daughter dance songs to suggestions on how to still make my mom feel important in this situation.
