    I am getting married in 6 weeks in December, and I'm looking for a father-daughter song to dance to. I specifically want to thank my father during this song...anyone have any suggestions on good songs?

    Wind beneath my wings?

    These come more from the parent to child angle, but all of them are lovely:

    I loved her first by Heartland.

    Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle

    You'll be in my heart. By Phil Collins

    Love of my life. By Carly Simon

    I loved her first is the one I plan to use. I love that song!

    There's another one that has Cinderella in the title that's good. Stealing Cinderella maybe?

    Butterfly Kisses is a great choice. A lesser known, but still just as great choice would be "Darker Side of the Moon" by Goapele.

    In that one, the girl talks about how every time she faces adversity and thinks she can't make it, her father supports her and pushes her to keep going.

    Everyone sees her "shining" and are in awe, not knowing her Dad is in the shadows encouraging and support her.

    "Through the Years" by Kenny Rogers is a nice song...not specifically for daughter/father...but the words are nice.

    Not sure of your faith, but "She was Watching" by Mark Schultz ends with a father at his daughter's wedding. :)

    Steven Curtis Chapman's Cinderella is beautiful, but the one that I love is Gary Allan Tough Little Boys.

    I CANNOT Listen to that song without crying. It came out the year my dad died.

    At my wedding, we danced to Daddy's Little Girl. I remember my dad singing it to each of us as kids.

    I danced with my dad to "In My Daughter's Eyes" by Martina McBride. I wanted our father-daughter dance to be more about me honoring my dad for the strength and courage he has given me throughout the years, not about him having to give me away.

    I like "alwaysdaddy" nice words...just Google it..although it does have him having to give you away lyrics too.

    "I Love" by Tom T. Hall was used for the father-daughter dance at a wedding I attended recently(my cousin's). It was one of the cutest things I have ever seen.

    Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! :)
