What are your songs for the wedding? (1st dance, bride/father, groom/mother)

My dad passed away so I am dancing with my older brother. We are still stuck on a song.
FI and I are dancing to "The Way You Look Tonight"
He does not know what to dance with his mom too.

What are you ladies doing?

  • First Dance:  If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys
    Father/Daughter:  Unforgettable by Nat & Natalie Cole

    Does FMIL have any suggestions as to what she'd like to dance to with her son? (Ignore that grammar, plsthx) I tried getting suggestions from my FMIL and she had none, FI got the deer-in-headlights look and said he didn't care, so I picked the song, ran it by FMIL, and badabing/whatever!

  • I'm sorry to hear about your dad, I'm glad that you and your brother are close and will be able to still have your dance.

    My suggestion would be either something that reminds you of your dad or maybe is special to your dad (if that's not too painful) or something that's special to you and your brother.  You could also let your brother choose but it seems like you guys are researching together.

    First dance: "I'll catch you" by the get up kids

    Father/Daughter: "Baby's got blue eyes" by Elton John (my dad used to sing it to me when I was a baby)

    Mother Son: Not sure yet, waiting on the DJ to get back to me if he has the song, but I think "A wedding wish for my son".  FMIL is allowed to pick the song and making me insane about it!
  • What about James Taylor's "You've Got a Friend" for you and your brother?

  • 1st Dance- Lucky by Jason & Colbie Callet or Like a Star by Corrine Bailey Rae

    Father/Daughter- Isn't she lovely by Stevie Wonder or Butterfly Kisses

    Mother/Son- I don't know yet. I just texted her to see if she has though of anything. I really like Because You Loved Me-Celine Dion.

  • First dance: Baby I'm yours by the arctic monkeys
    Father/daughter dance: My little girl by Tim Mcgraw

    I don't think FI wants to do a mother/son dance...

    LiaDee-love your father/daughter dance song and 1st dance song!
  • We haven't finalized, but I'm thinking "Then" by Brad Paisley for our first dance.  I like country, but he doesn't, and we're not planning on playing much country at the reception.  But I love the lyrics.

    We're not going to do a Father/Daughter or a Mother/Son.  I just don't want to do too many organized dances, and I'm not too excited about the Father/Daughter.

    Posted by rien713[/QUOTE]

    I like this idea. We weren't planning on doing father/daughter or mother/son dances, but if FMIL insists I might do this with my brother (he's walking me down the aisle, my father is not invited).

    Our first dance song: "Hard to Concentrate" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
  • Love everybody's songs! I think most of them I either considered for one of my songs or they are my song. lol
    Sorry about your dad, afloggie.
    My songs:
    1st dance: Three Times A Lady-The Commodores (the only one of my songs that wasn't mentioned lol!)
    Father/daughter: Unforgettable-Nat King Cole & Natalie Cole
    Mother/son: My Wish-Rascal Flatts (FMIL actually picked it which was really shocking that bc she's not very mushy lol)

    Afloggie: What about Kenny Rogers' Through the Years or Hero by Mariah Carey?
  • First Dance: When i Said I do By Clint Black
    Father/Daughter : Maybe Butterfly Kisses but its kinda long so not sure yet thought about doing both Mother/Son and Daughter/Father together.
    Mother/Son : What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.
