I would suggest My Girl for father daughter. If you have brown eyes you could also do brown eyed girl. If you want something not too mushy I would do What a wonderful world. It is positive but doesn’t really say much and its short.  For him and his sister maybe do Elvis Love me Tender. It sounds weird but if you look at the lyrics its just generic. You could also do unforgetable by Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole or If your name has a song with your name in it.

Sweet Pea by Amos Lee is cute without being too twee. It’s a little more upbeat and easy to have a nice medium tempo dance to.

I’m drawing a blank on the brother/sister dance.

For your Fiance and his sister:
For Good – Wicked (Glee version is decent and you could skip the first part)
Simple Man – Lyndard Skynard/ Shinedown has a nice acoustic version
Whenever you Remember – Carrie Underwood
Simple Song – Passenger
It Don’t Have to Change – John Legend

 

Or a different angle…

They could do the dance as a tribute to their mother. Was there a particular song she loved or would sing to them? 

There you’ll be – Faith Hill (super sad though)
When I get Where I’m Going – Brad Paisley

 

As for you…
Changes – Kelly + Ozzy Osbourne
Isn’t she lovely – Stevie Wonder
In My Life – The Beatles
Somewhere over the rainbow – IZ

Either you or your fiance:
Dream Big – Ryan Shupe
Take Me Home, Country Roads – John Denver

futremrswhite17 :  We did a “family dance” in which I started out dancing with just my dad and then my husband and his dad and sister joined in. (His mom passed away a couple of years ago.) Eventually my brother and his wife and my niece and nephews joined in too. And then my dad and I ended it with a robot dance. I think a combined dance is the way to go because it gets reaaaaaaally long if you have three full-length songs (you and your husband, you and your dad, and your husband and his sister). The song we chose was “Teach Your Children” by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. Here’s a video:
