Hi!


I鈥檓 wanting opinions 馃槉Our wedding is 60 people max, 50 of which are adults. I was thinking something cute would be, during the mother-son and father-daughter dance that all the mother-son鈥檚 and father-daughter鈥檚 dance through the whole song with the bride-father and groom-mother. What does everyone think of this idea? 馃挋

    I was thinking that during the mother-son and father-daughter dance that even the little ones could dance with the parent 馃槉

    I love this idea! I wish I could do this at my wedding but unfortunately I feel like that would open up to many can worms between some of my guests LOL But I think this is a great idea

    Yes I actually envy that you can do this at your wedding right now LOL because I love this idea. Too much in guest drama mostly on my FHs side as far as father daughter parents issues hahaha but I can鈥檛 wait to hear all the details about how it goes for you! Keep us posted and congrats!

    This is ADORABLE! I was actually thinking of doing something similar. The first half of the song will be just me and my dad then half way through we will invite all the other daddy-daughters to join us.

    I think that鈥檚 a really cute idea. Not sure if you remember What A Girl Wants with Amanda Bynes and Colin Firth, but Amanda鈥檚 character and her mom worked weddings and that鈥檚 what usually happened at those weddings. The bride and her father started it out, but then other father-daughters joined the dance floor as well.

    Start with just 4 of you and then invite all the others to join. But cute no tacky.

    This is adorable and I'd totally be melting over all the kiddos.

    I think it's a beautiful idea. However, something like this would leave me sobbing in the bathroom. My dad passed away before I got married, so I was not able to have a father-daughter dance at my wedding. I danced with my brother (and cried all over him at the wedding) - but I have yet to be able to be at a wedding and sit through the father-daughter dance. It just hurts too much. Having all the fathers and daughters dance would be like salt in an open wound.

    I still think it's a beautiful idea, just wanted to add another perspective.

    I actually had this thought as well.. my FMIL鈥檚 biological dad just passed away, but her parents have been separated and with new people since she was a kid so she鈥檚 had another father figure her whole life.. my wedding is in November so I still have time to think about this.

    Actually, surprisingly I will! I didn鈥檛 think so at first when I thought of the idea and I was like hmm is there even going to be enough people to make this work so I started looking at my guest list and I was like wow I do actually have a bit. I think it was going to be like 6 sets for each.
