    Something that is special for the two of you? Maybe look at the music he likes and go from there.

    Also, it's okay to skip the "parent" dance. If it's important to you, than by all means. But guests usually don't care to watch them. You could always just ask him  to dance at some point in the night.

    I'm not at all looking forward to the father(uncle)/daughter dance. My uncle raised me and we're close I just never really thought of him as a father.... So the whole thing just feels weird and I'd love to skip it. However, if we don't do a mother/son dance my FMIL would be heartbroken and never forgive us. I don't want to make a fuss and it's more important for them to dance then it's important for me not to so I'll do it. For us, it is just not an option to skip it w/o hurting family.

     

    It's hard enough to pick a father/daughter song I totally understand your situation. I'll probably go with a Billy Joel song because we're from Long Island and people think my uncle looks like the singer.

     

    Good luck with your selection.

    I am in the same predicament and wanted something slighlty less sappy and more upbeat! Hope these inspire you!
