Wedding & Party Planning

Welcome to my blog celebrating all the things I love. I will be writing about the things that inspire me, discussing fashion and style tips, taking you from the runway to real life. With party planning tips for all occasions. Keeping you in the know with the latest trends in food, décor and lifestyle. And, time and again about the balance of being running a successful business and being a great Mom to my two boys who are 12 and 6. I’m excited to begin this blogging journey and hope to hear your feedback to learn about things you want to see.

The Father and Daughter Dance

Almost every wedding has a father-daughter dance that evokes so many different emotions you just want to cry. It's a really special time of the night, but picking a song can be tough. Here are some of our favorite father-daughter songs with lyrical snippets:

1. Isn't She Lovely - Stevie Wonder

"We have been heaven blessed, I can't believe what God has done, Through us he's given life to one, But isn't she lovely made from love"

2. Because You Loved Me - Celine Dion

"You gave me wings and made me fly, You touched my hand I could touch the sky, I lost my faith, you gave it back to me"

3. Daughers - John Mayer

"On behalf of every man, Looking out for every girl, You are the God and weight of her world, So fathers, be good to your daughers"

4. You Raise Me Up - Josh Groban

"You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains, You raise me up to walk on stormy seas, I am strong when I am on your shoulders, You raise me up to more than I can be"

5. Sweet Child O' Mine - Sheryl Crow

"Now and then when I see her face, She takes me away to that special place, And if I stared too long, I'd probably break down and cry"

6. The Way You Look Tonight - Frank Sinatra

"Some day, when I'm awfully low, When the world is cold, I will feel a glow just thinking of you"

7. Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle

"I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl, Then she leaned over and gave me, Butterfly kisses"

8. I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders

"Oh, why you look so sad, the tears are in your eyes, Come on and come to me now and don't be ashamed to cry, Let me see you through 'cause I've seen the dark side too, When the night falls on you, you don't know what to do, Nothing you confess could make me love you less, I'll stand by you"

9. My Little Girl - Tim McGraw

"Someday some boy will come and ask me for your hand, But I won't say yes to him, Unless I know he's the half that makes you whole, He has a poet's soul and the heart of a man's man, I know he'll say that he's in love, But between you and me, he won't be good enough"

10. Father and Daughter - Paul Simon

"As long as one and one is two, There could never be a father, Love his daughter more than I love you"

11. If I Could - Ray Charles

"Daddy wants to protect you, And help my baby through the hungriest, 'Cause you're part of me, And if you ever ever need, Said a shoulder to cry on, Or just someone to talk to, I'll be there, I'll be there"

12. It's For My Dad - Nancy Sinatra

"Always a partner, a playmate and a teacher, Ready with a joke when times were sad, And in my teens, sometimes he was a preacher, This song's not for you folks, It's for my Dad"

13. I Loved Her First - Heartland

"So be careful when you hold my girl, Time changes everything, Life must go on, And I'm not gonna stand in your way, I loved her first, I held her first"

14. When You Need Me - Bruce Springsteen

"I got two strong arms waitin' to hold you, And when those mean days come along, We'll stand together and we'll take 'em on, So if you need me just call my name"

15. Daddy's Little Girl - Michael Bublé

"You're the treasure I cherish, so sparkling and bright, You were touched by the Holy and beautiful light, Like angels that sing, a hea-ven-ly thing, And you're Daddy's little girl"
