    1. Butterfly Kisses
    Bob Carlisle's Butterfly Kisses is one of the all-time favorites. The message is loved by dads and daughters alike and the tempo makes dancing easy.

    2. When Angels Fly
    When Angels Fly is a new addition to our top ten list of father-daughter wedding songs. Performed by Tony Ransom & The Heavenly Light Orchestra, it is at once inspiring and memorable.

    3. I Loved Her First
    What a great song for a father-daughter wedding dance! By the country/pop group Heartland, this song will melt the heart of daughter, father and every onlooker.

    4. Through the Years
    Through the Years by Kenny Rogers is a timeless song of love and is a favorite of many of my friends. It is a little bit country, which appeals to many dads and daughters, but is sweet and memorable.

    5. Sunrise Sunset
    The wedding song from the Fiddler on the Roof is a long time favorite for the dad and daughter dance. It was sung at my wedding reception 29 years ago, and has special memories for me. And it makes for an elegant dance given the slow and graceful tempo.

    6. How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)
    This James Taylor classic hit is a great but less often used wedding dance choice. Many dads remember it from their youth and it is a lot of fun to dance to. This is not your classic waltz, but it is still memorable.

    7. The Way You Look Tonight
    An old Frank Sinatra tune (with the Count Basie orchestra) is a wonderful dad and daughter dance number. It has a fun beat and is well crafted for a little swing dance at a wedding or reception.

    8. Unforgettable
    You can't listen to Natalie Cole's version of her father's hit Unforgettable without feeling the warm affection between a father and a daughter. And it is easy to dance to as well.

    9. Lullabye (Goodnight my Angel)
    One of Billy Joel's soulful songs sings a lullaby to his daughter and provides a favorite dance song for weddings. This is a unique song--not one you'll hear at every wedding--and still is meaningful to a dad and his newlywed daughter.

    10. My Father's Eyes
    Amy Grant's performance of My Father's Eyes is sweet and soulful and will be loved by both you and your daughter.

              Don't forget the Loudon Wainwright 'That's my daughter in the water' song...the one from Knocked Up. I just love that song

                If you like Rascall Flatts, check out 'My Wish' - so perfect. :)

                  I LOVE, my wish! I think I'm going to dance with my dad to "All Because Two People Fell in Love" by Brad Paisley, and suggest "My Wish" for FI and FMIL.
