In honor of Father’s Day this weekend, we wanted to highlight a traditional moment during the wedding reception that is often filled with tears–the father-daughter dance. Finding a song that encapsulates the relationship you’ve shared over the years can be hard, especially when the options are almost all classics and few modern. To help you choose, we’ve compiled our favorites below:

1. “My Girl” by The Temptations

2. “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder

3. “Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel

4. “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong

5.  “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra

6. “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts 

7. “Daughters” by John Mayer

8. “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw

9. “I Loved Her First” by Heartland

10.  “Unforgettable” by Nat & Natalie Cole
