    I personally think “You Look so Good in Love” is a more appropriate choice, so i voted it was too romantic.

    THAT SAID – If you have your heart set on this song though, do it!  For my 1st wedding, my song was “Alabama Rain” by Jim Croce – hardly anyone knew it, but my daddy used to play it for me on his guitar, so it was special to US.  I never regretted that choice.

    Have you considered “I loved her first” by Heartland?  My dad and I danced to “Daddy’s Hands” by Holly Dunn and my sister and my dad danced to “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle.

    My dad calls me every other day with a new song he wants us to dance too… some of his choices…

    My Wish, I loved her first, What a wonderful World.  No matter what the song is I know I will be bawling the whole time, But I think “I loved her first” just pulls at the heartstrings the most!

    Even tho it’s a little cliche/cheesy, I can’t help but tear up every time I hear Tim McGraw’s “My Little Girl.”

    I am dancing to I loved her first – when I played it for my dad (we don’t listen to country regularly) he teared up and I knew it had to be it!

    But I voted go for it – if you love it and he loves it I say do it!

    or what about “How Bout Them Cowgirls?” if you really wanted George Strait? Of course if Amarillo By Morning is YOUR song– then that is definitely the song you should dance to! You shouldn’t worry about what other people will think, its a moment for just you and your dad.

    Go with Amarillo By Morning!  It’s an awesome song and everyone will be so touched at how cute you are with your dad that no one is going to care that it’s not the ‘traditional’ f/d song.  I’d rather see a f/d dance to a song that meant something to them then something 500 other brides have danced to because it was ‘appropriate’.  Of course that’s just MY opinion.  In the end it’s YOUR choice.

    I didn’t want to use “My Little Girl” or “I loved her first” because everyone where I am from uses those. I am actually going to use “Best Day” by Taylor Swift.

    There’s nothing wrong with Amarillo By Morning if your dad prefers that. I also agree with the suggestion of How About Them Cowgirls, also by George Strait.

    I really like “My Wish” by Rascall Flatts because my FI will be dancing with his Mom while I dance with my Dad. But I think “It Just Comes Natural” is an awesome song for you and your dad. I think everyone will see it in the right light! I don’t know Amarillo by Morning, but if its the song you want then go for it!
