I'm still tossing around the options for whether or not to dance with my Dad at my reception. I'm pretty sure he's coming bc he got fitted for a tux but we have a strained relationship and we don't really talk. If I do decide to dance with him though, I need ideas for songs that aren't too lovey dovey, mushy or sentimental.

I have thought about that and it's quite possible which is another reason I'm considering it. We used to be close. He kinda has backed away from a lot of the family, including me. I wish it were different but I just feel awkward.
Not really in the same boat, my dad's Relationship isn't strained but also not very emotional. I'm planing on skipping the father daughter dance and having all the parents (both mine and my significant others parents are divorced and remarried so 8 parents) square dance together. I think it is a fun way to symbolize the joining of our families without being mushy about it. However we aren't sure about which song to pick for that.
I am in the same boat. No suggestions unfortunately. I have looked over and over again but no luck. I will be dancing with both my step dad (who has been around since I was 2 and is truly my dad), as well as my father. Definitely going to be difficult finding a song for both.
Good luck to you!

I’m doing a dance with my mom to “momma’s song” for that same reason. My dad has came leaps and bounds from who he was while I was growing up and I want to have a dance with him as well, so I totally understand your struggle to find the right song. I would honestly suggest finding a song that is true to your relationship with your father without throwing him under the bus in front of everyone at the wedding. What I’m doing with my dad is I’m giving him a couple options (haven’t found those options yet) and letting him pick. That way he feels like he has a say and I’m not just picking the most man hating song I can find.
This is cool. Wish my family could be like this. Parents divorced in 2001 everyone is still awful about it. My dad never wants to talk about the upcoming wedding or anything. Don't want to the dance either but hes contributed about 18% of total cost so I feel like I have to
Is your groom going to be doing a mother/son dance?...because my fiance decided to combine the father daught/mother son dances to speed up the awkwardness and time. You can pick a generic sweet song for both to enjoy, instead of making it just about father daughter lovey mush.
