    I am letting my dad choose, but I'm pretty sure it will be My Little Girl by Tim McGraw. My sister danced with him to The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra.

      My Dad just picked "You must be love" by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles.

      I can't think of what song that is so I'll have to look it up...

      Just the way things go sometimes, I guess, but I am way closer with my Step MOM than my dad, I love him loads, but he is just kinda quiet, and until the last 3 years we haven't been that close. I have been moaning and groaning to Doug over this father/daughter dance that I know everyone will expect us to do, but I'm not 100% comfortable with it. I was thinking maybe Doug and his daughter could dance with us at the same time, and I really like the idea of having my dad choose the song. I think it would be a good ice-breaker to the whole are we/aren't we conversation.
      I do love Butterfly Kisses, and My Little Girl, but lately I have actually really liked the Miley Cyrus and her dad Billy Ray Cyrus song Get Ready, Get Set, Don't Go.

        My dad really loves classical music. The one song we both love to play (and sing) over and over is "Time to say goodbye". We love to go for drives and just blast that song and sing our hearts out. While the lyrics aren't too appropriate for a wedding--cuz it's about saying goodbye-- it's our favorite song. I'm thinking of playing the Italian version to take the focus off of the lyrics.

          A friend of mine used Sweet Child O Mine by Guns n Roses at her wedding in October. Both she and her dad were singing along to the entire song. They had a lot of fun with it.

            Jamie Foxx has a song he wrote for his daughter called "Heaven". Its about how God wakes up one morning to realize he's missing an angel, and its because she was sent here to be his baby girl and how heaven will never be the same. Its beautiful. Would be very appropriate for a wedding if anyone wants to check it out. Here are the lyrics:

            Tell me have you heard the story
            That took place not long ago
            About an angel up in heaven
            They say she up and ran away from home

            They say she had unfinished business
            So back to earth she had to flee
            And you know I'm so elated
            Because she's standing right here right next to me

            And when God woke up that morning
            And He called out her name
            And when she didn't answer
            Heaven would never ever ever be the same

            At times it seems we take for granted
            How precious life can be
            Open your heart and I'm sure you'll understand
            Bringing into this world
            A precious boy or a girl

            And when God woke up that morning
            And said, "Where did my little angel go?"
            And when she didn't answer
            Heaven will never ever ever be, heaven will never be the same.

              We are doing Just The Way you Look Tonite... the lyrics are...

              Some day, when I'm awfully low,
              When the world is cold,
              I will feel a glow just thinking of you...
              And the way you look tonight.

              Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
              And your cheeks so soft,
              There is nothing for me but to love you,
              And the way you look tonight.

              With each word your tenderness grows,
              Tearing my fear apart...
              And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
              It touches my foolish heart.

              Lovely ... Never, ever change.
              Keep that breathless charm.
              Won't you please arrange it ?
              'Cause I love you ... Just the way you look tonight.

              Mm, Mm, Mm, Mm,
              Just the way you look to-night

                  But for others who may be interested here's a link to it on youtube:

                  YouTube - I Loved Her First
                  All I have to say is this song is beautiful, the words make me cry. My sister and my dad danced to this song at her wedding this past Sept, he picked it out. Love it! I don't know if there's anything better!

                    Anyone use "Stealing Cinderella" by Chuch Wicks. I cant decide if it is appropriate or not. It brings me to tears...

                    came to see her daddy for sit down man to man
                    It wasn't any secret i'd be asking for her hand
                    I guess that's why he left me waiting in the living room by myself
                    with at least a dozen pictures of her sitting on a shelf

                    - Chorus -

                    She was playing Cinderella
                    She was riding her first bike
                    Bouncing on the bed and looking for a pillow fight
                    Running through the sprinkler with a big popsicle grin
                    Dancing with her dad, looking up at him
                    In her eyes i'm Prince Charming
                    But to him i'm just some fella
                    riding in and stealing Cinderella

                    I leaned in towards those pictures to get a better look at one
                    When I heard a voice behind me say "Now, ain't she something, son?"
                    I said "Yes, she quite a woman"
                    and he just stared at me
                    Then I realized that in his eyes she would always be

                    Playing Cinderella
                    Riding her first bike
                    Bouncing on the bed and looking for a pillow fight
                    Running through the sprinkler with a big popsicle grin
                    Dancing with her dad, looking up at him
                    In her eyes i'm Prince Charming
                    But to him i'm just some fella
                    riding in and stealing Cinderella

                    He slapped me on the shoulder
                    Then he called her in the room
                    When she threw her arms around him
                    That's when I could see it too

                    Playing Cinderella
                    Riding her first bike
                    Bouncing on the bed and looking for a pillow fight
                    Running through the sprinkler with a big popsicle grin
                    Dancing with her dad, looking up at him
                    If he gives me a hard time
                    I can't blame the fella
                    I'm the one who's stealing Cinderel
