Sounds to me like you need a meaningful note that is also going to be sincere and not just full of obligatory words.  How about something like:

Dear Dad,

Words cannot express how grateful I am for your contribution to my wedding.  I’ve been dreaming of this day my whole life and you helped make this dream a reality.  Thanks to you, I was able to invite all the important people in my life, provide them a lovely meal, dance the night away to a wonderful DJ’s music, and walk down the aisle in a dress that took everyone’s breath away.  While we rarely have the opportunity to spend much time together, I find a great deal of comfort and joy in knowing that you care and love me so much.  Not everyone is lucky enough to have a father that is so generous.  Thank you again and I love you so much.

Love always,

I think something like this would have the emotion you are looking for, but it’s not forcing to you tell him that he’s the greatest dad in the world or anything either.  Inserting actual details from your wedding help him to know that this is not a “cookie cutter” letter and he will feel special being on the receiving end.  He’s still your dad and even if you have your differences, you should still make sure he feels that you are genuinely grateful for what he did.

@Miss Marine: No problem!  I could tell you were grateful, but considering the history of your relationship it was difficult to walk that fine line of gratefulness for the gift, but not necessarily gratefulness for everything.  I’m glad I could help.  Best of luck!
