I don’t have any advice on the relationship itself, but if you think that songs with lyrics may pose a problem for you, why not dance to an instrumental composition? You can pick one to suit the tempo, beat, etc. There just won’t be any words to stir up any unwanted emotions.

@blondie634:  The wedding is completely your day so if you don’t feel comfortable having a father/daughter dance, I say just skip it!  Don’t feel pressured by tradition or expectations. I have an international marriage so my husband’s culture never has a bride/groom first dance.  He felt very uncomfortable with it (no matter how many different styles I offered and Youtube videos I showed him!).  Even though it’s such a big part of American wedding tradition, we skipped it, and no one said a thing or cared a bit!  In the end, it was the best way to go because my husband was happy, and I didn’t feel like I pressured him into an uncomfortable situation, which made me a happier and more relaxed bride.  Do whatever makes you happy on your big day 🙂

Its your day. Traditions aren’t universal and don’t always apply 100% of the time. You should definitely do what makes you most happy.

@Olive12:  Great advice! Pick a song that is neutral. I hope you two can work on building a special father-daughter relationship.
