Father and daughter dance / Mother and groom dance

Stéphanie, on July 4, 2019 at 15:29 Posted in Before the wedding

Hi everyone!

What do you think of the fact that me and my fiance wouldn't dance at the same time when it's Father and daughter dance / Mother and groom dance because we would have two different song. I want ''my little girl'' but another version than Tim McGraw. Can we agree that it wouldn't make sense for my fiance to dance with his mother on that song? So he would have the song ''Simple man'' when he dance with his mother.


Do you guys just have one song that you dance at the same time or a song for the bride to dance with his father and a song for the groom to dance with his mother?

    We're definitetly doing 2 songs and having 2 dances. I honestly wouldnt' want to share that special moment/steal that special moment. It's a special time between a parent and their child getting married; it's fine to have it separately.

    Mother by Sugarland is a good neutral song. (I just found it yesterday when I was looking for mother/daughter sons).

    Mother by Sugarland is a good neutral song for anyone looking to do a combo dance.

    Dances for both ways are becoming a norm and if you like your song choices, stick with them.

    Alternative song choice are optional to go with:

    Father/Daughter dance: The Climb - Miley Cyrus

    Mother/Groom dance: Mother like Mine-The Band Perry

    Hi Stephanie,

    That is very normal, or at least normal to the wedding's I have been too!

    I am also doing two separate songs, the songs I have chosen are below -->

    Father Daughter Dance: Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle (This is a very special song to my Dad as we sang it together since I was 5!!)

    Mother Son Dance: My Wish - Holly Tucker

    I hope this helps if anyone needed any ideas or suggestions ! Smiley winking

    Thats pretty normal from what weddings I have been to each of those dances has their own song.

    That's pretty normal, at least for the weddings I've been to. We're likely going to do something similar but just with different people. My fiancé was raised by his grandma but we dont think she'll be able to fly over, and I stopped talking to my dad about 6 years ago, so we're coming up with some kind of modification to the traditional father-daughter/mother-groom dances. Keeping them as 2 different dances but we might both be dancing with my mom.

    This is the one. It does mention barbie dolls, but also lightsaber wars.

    2 songs is pretty standard. It gives you that one on one time with your dad/mom. If you were short on time you could do one, but most people are prepared for 2!

    We have separate songs chosen. I’ve also never seen the bride and groom dance with their parents at the same time.

    I've actually never seen those dances done at the same time. It's usually different songs for each so the dances are one after the other.
