Brother/Sister Dance at Weddings Becoming More and More Popular
More and more couples are adding Brother/Sister dances to their reception schedules. In most cases the Brother/Sister dance is used in lieu of a Father/Daughter dance when the father is deceased or not involved in the wedding.
Becca Kaufman of BKO Orchestra in Chicago says that the dance can become awkward for guests, “Honestly, I advise against it,” she says. “Instead of going for the same emotions as a traditional Father/Daughter dance, I recommend choosing an upbeat, fun song for the siblings and inviting everyone to join in.”
DJ Nate Long agrees that the key to making the dance successful (and not creepy) is careful song selection. “You want to find a song that represents close ties, but not intimate ones,” says Long. Among Long’s suggestions are James Taylor’s “You’ve Got a Friend” and Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend.”

Is this a little creepy?
