Your father. He taught you how to tie your shoes, and how to throw a curve ball. He made you pancakes on Saturday mornings, and always offered a shoulder to cry on. He loved you the second he laid eyes on you, and he was the first man that you ever loved.

Your wedding will certainly be a happy occasion for your old man, but, as witnessed in The Father of the Bride, dads tend to get a tad emotional when it comes to their "little girl" getting married.

Having a father-daughter dance at your reception is a touching way to honor your dad. We've got 25 non-cheesy songs that are perfect for this oh-so-special dance — just be sure to ask for his input, too!
