Welcome to the Hive!  Maybe you should ask your bio-father if there is a song that makes him think of you and use that.  It may end up being a real bonding moment for the both of you to hear something lovely that makes him think of you.

I’d probably split the dance in half with each of them and also have the song changed when partners switch. What a nice choice to have to make,tho!

@ItWasntMe:  That would be my pick as well.

My step-cousin feels like a full cousin because she was raised from the age of two by my uncle while her biological father was largely absent. At her wedding, she walked down the aisle with both her dad and stepdad – until she got halfway, at which point her biological father sat down.

I think it would be appropriate if your biological father got the first minute or so, at which point he very graciously handed you off to your uncle.

To honor your uncle who raised you, why not give him the first dance with the song you choose, and maybe something a little less emotional/serious for your father? I went to a wedding once where the groom danced with his mom to “I can’t smile without you” by barry manilow, it’s very upbeat happy song that doesn’t have lyrics about watching you grow up, etc.
