My wedding is on Saturday and I don’t have a song for my father daughter dance yet … eek. My dad and I had a complicated relationship growing up but it has really improved over the last few years. I didn’t want anything super sentimental, but I’m open. Something slower would be good since I have no rhythm and don’t really know what his abilities are haha. Any suggestions???
And before anyone says anything, I know I don’t have to do the father/daughter dance thing, but I really want to. I know it would be important to him, and he’s been diagnosed with cancer so I am so thrilled he is here for the wedding since it was scary for a while. I think it will be a moment we will both cherish… I also think that’s why I’m putting so much pressure on finding the best song I can.

“I loved her first” by Heartland. It’s about a father giving away his daughter. Talks about how he still loves her but they no longer have the same relationship they used to.
Some others that might be good:
“Daughters” by John Mayer
“My Funny Valentine” (there are a lot of remakes of this song)
“Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder
“Over The Rainbow” by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole
Those aren’t really focused on relationship specifics so those might be good!

Thanks for your response. My dad hates country and I find a lot of the more appropriate songs are country songs. It’s so hard to find something without a creepiness factor to it.
I’m leaning towards Elton John’s “Your Song” but I don’t know if that is more of a love song and inappropriate?
There’s also A wonderful world which I do think is a classic.
I like the Over the Rainbow suggestion, I will see what my dad says about that!

A wonderful world would be great too!

My dad and I did “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. “Wildflowers” by Tom Petty might also be good.

My Wish by Rascal Flatts. Not super sentimental.

I’m also struggling with this issue, and both my dad and I really dislike country, which, unfortunately, seems to be the best genre for father/daughter songs! We’re leaning towards Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely?” right now. My Fiance and his mom have NO idea what song they want yet. 🙁
