Ok so I'm getting married on Valentine's Day and I'm trying to find the perfect Father/Daughter song.  A little background, hes not my bio father.  He came into the picture when I was about 3.  He's been more of a father to me then my mother has been a mother.  Alot of the songs out there are more geared to bio dads.  There is one that is absolutely perfect and thats  He didn't have to be"   by Brad Paisley.  But thats more geared towards fathers and sons.  Uggh any suggestions ladies??  I could use a few.  Thanks

i will suggest the same song i did for my sil.  although mil and step dad have only been together for like 5 years, she still is closer to him then she is with fil.  so when she wanted a song to dance with him at her reception i said "hope you dance" by leann womack.  she loved it and it fits well.

well at my wedding i picked out i loved her first by heart land to dance with my step dad in the father daughter dance because, like you, he came into my life when i was 3 and my bio father wasnt around but my step dad passed away a month before my wedding so i didnt do a father/daughter dance but everytime i hear that song i cry. There is also a song not too many people have heard of but it is called Cinderella by steven curtis chapman. It is a beautiful song.

Let us know which one you pick.
