WEDDING: The dances

For the father/daughter dance we danced to Jessica Simpson's "You Don't Have To Let Go".
Obvs, you know I am co-president of the Jessica Simpson fan club and still watch my Newlyweds dvds. So in 2004 when her cd In This Skin came out and she said she had written it for her dad I knew I would be dancing to that song for my father/daughter dance. I sent the lyrics to Dad and he said was teary eyed. That was all the approval I needed.

All the days that you gave
All the moments you've saved me,
Praying for my life
Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
You don't have to let go

You don't say it
But it's in your eyes
All the fears of good-bye
But I can promise
You'll always have a place, and a way to my heart
If you asked him today what song we danced to he probably couldn't tell you. We had a fun time dancing and talking so we weren't a crying father/daughter dance, even though my Uncle says he saw me tear up. It was sweet and fun and I'm glad our dj cut the songs shorter cause who wants to watch three minutes of that?
On to the mother/son dance...
oh FUN FACT I don't think I have shared, Hubby's mom is a dance teacher. I actually met her first. I minored in theatre arts because at our college the dance classes were theatre classes. She taught a class I took. Luckily I got an A! I met him through friends later and it was just a funny coincedence (fate) that I had taken her class.
they kicked around a lot of ideas for their dance. They talked about choreographing something funny, etc. It took awhile for them to pick a song to dance to. I think I finally picked it for them and they were ok with it. They danced to Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me To The Moon". Reading the lyrics you might think it is a romantic song and maybe Old Blue Eyes meant it that way but it was a song they both liked and it was fun to see them dance together to such a great song!

Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On jupiter and mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby kiss me
Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you


  1. Fly me to the moon is one of my all time favs!

  2. That's really cute! I can't remember what the mother son dance was at our wedding.

  3. I love jessica simpson too!! I will never stop liking her no matter what! :)
    I danced to a Fleetwood Mac song with my dad! Landslide! Only because my dad used to play that record when I was little and whenever I heard of it as a teenager or adult it made me think of him...the meaning of the song is not so dad and daughter though :)
    Andrew's mom passed away before our wedding, so nothing for him :(
