Uncle & Niece Wedding Dance Song
Ok, so My uncle raised me from 13yrs. old until I moved out with my FH is walking me down the aisle & I'm dancing with him in leiu of my father. My father is alive but will not be attending our wedding. So, here's the actual question I need a song, I was thinking "Fix You" by Coldplay, but any suggestions are great.. or do you think "Fix you" is appropriate?

I say choose a song that you both like and that suits your relationship. Here are a few other suggestions:

Hero - Mariah Carey
In My Life - The Beatles
What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
Little Wonders - Rob Thomas
My Wish - Rascal Flatts
Unforgettable - Nat King Cole & Natalie Cole
Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper
Stand by Me - Ben E. King & The Drifters
The Best Day - Taylor Swift
Forever Young - Rod Stewart

May your wedding day be filled with special memories!

My uncle is also walking me (and my dad also won't be at the wedding) and I'm thinking about using In My Life by the Beatles unless I find something more fitting.

Thank you all for the suggestions!! This is soo.. freaking hard for me!! I don't really like anything, my uncle is younger than most uncles it's my mom's youngest brother he's 42 & im 29! He & his wife took me in when they were newly married with a newborn & a 2 yr.old & they had to deal w/ me during those horrible teenage years.. We both like the same music!! I don't want him to know the song until wedding day, i want it to be a surprise to him.. So i want it to have a lot of meaning of how special he is to me!! Why does this have to be soo hard!! But please keep suggestions coming!! I would have used "My Wish" but my FH & his mom are dancing to that!!

One of the songs of the few songs that I am thinking of is "Tell you something" by Alicia Keys. Since both of my parents have pasted, I figured it would be appropriate. Its about making time to tell your loved ones how much they mean before its too late. If I use it I just hope I don't start balling my eyes out.

Its just that most songs have been ran into the ground our about intimate love....and I don't want it to have an incestuous feeling lmao. I think for us we definitely should look for the "thank you" kind of songs. Dido had one. I have to read the lyrics to be sure.

OK so here are some I have reserved on my playlist:

Because you love me- Celine Dion
Thank you- Dido
Isn't she lovely- Stevie wonder
Ill be there- Mariah Carey or Jackson Five
How sweet it is (to be loved by you)-Marvin Gaye
Tell you something- Alicia Keys
Lean on me or stand by me- Temptations
I'm your angel- Celine Dion

Hope that helps get you closer to something you like...I have been looking for months so I know how hard it can be.

I'm in the same boat too. I was 9 when I moved in with my aunt and uncle and he's been the closest thing to a father for me. Since there are so many people in my life (or no longer in my life, I should say) that wont be at my wedding my whole goal for the day will be to not start crying my eyes out. I plan to pick a "uncle/niece" song that I don't even like just so it wont make me emotional! But I love the Little Wonders song and it really is very fitting for anyone who has been taken in by someone other than your parents!

Ok So I have looked at a few other sites and I have found a couple good ones that I am looking at. Such as help pour out the rain-buddy jewell. You look so good in light-George Straight. Stealing Cinderella-Chuck Wicks. Very good but emotional songs! Good luck girls I am in the same boat trying t find that perfect song!

My uncle will also be walking me down the aisle and I am having a very hard time finding a song that suites our relationship. I grew up very close to my uncle but I have not seen him in 8 years, he lives in Seattle and I live in Indiana. My dad committed suicide last year, so my uncle is the next closest man in my life. So I'm gonna ball my eyes out no matter what just because I don't have a choice in not having my dad there. I'm crying now just talking about it! So I want to dance with my uncle but I need a song that's respectful to my dad? Any suggestions?

I am also dancing with my uncle because my father is not in my life. It is nice to know I am not the only one in this situation. I am dancing to the song "Little Wonder" Rob Thomas. I have listened to tons of songs and this is the one that gave me that feeling of "This is the song." Hope this helps. Good luck ladies!!

I'm also dancing with my uncle, he's been the closest thing to a father figure that I've had in my life. My dad has been in my life, but only when it's been convenient for him. He got remarried when I was 6 and he's always let his wife keep him from me, so we don't have a great relationship and I will not be inviting him to my wedding. I would like the song we dance to to be a country song to go with my wedding theme, preferably an older song by somebody like George Jones. Any ideas?
