There’s nothing sweeter than the father of the bride serenading his daughter on her wedding day – as long as he’s not dramatically off-key. Your dad may fancy himself a bit of an undiscovered talent, but singing in the shower isn’t the same as standing with a microphone in front of 150 other people.
Look, some dads are great singers. Some aren’t, but they make up for it with a sense of humor, charisma or some killer dance moves. If your father/step-father/whomever wants to sing, and you want him to sing, by all means give him the green light to rock the Roy Orbison shades. Otherwise, gently remind him that he should really be focusing on preparing the awesome dance that’s going to make all the other guests insanely jealous of the stellar dancing genes you’ve clearly inherited. Growing up is all about learning to play to our strengths, after all.
Also, can anyone tell us why these fathers always insist on singing one of the same four Frank Sinatra songs? ALWAYS. Seriously, people, please learn some new music. The Sinatra is killing us!
(No, but really. Any recommendations for dad-appropriate non-Sinatra tunes? We’re all ears — and bad puns, apparently!)
