    Find something where the lyrics really hit home with you. Something with a personal meaning between it that relates to your relationship with these people. Maybe the song for your daughter, I hope you dance Martina MC Bride, or if you have a close bond with your mom, Because you loved me by Celine Dieon, With your wife, maybe if the two of you have had rough past relationships, bad break ups in the past, I finally found someone by Bet Middler, from the bed of roses sound track.

    What ever you choose traditional or not, the song should hold a special meaning to you and your loved ones.

    Best Wishes

    Hey mate,

    Here are some ideas that might inspire you with some links to the songs too (so you can see what i'm talking about):

    Wife - Bless The Broken Road by Rascal Flatts

    Youtube thumbnail


    Daughter - Thank You by Led Zeppein

    Youtube thumbnail

    (wait til about 7 seconds for the right song to start)

    Mum - Days Like This by Van Morrison

    If you want something more traditional though, for your daughter you might have My Fathers Eyes by Eric Clapton.

    I really hope these help, have a great day no matter what though! It's about the people you love not the songs they play.

    Good Luck,

    "It Had to Be You" by Harry Conick Jr (It's a little more upbeat and less sappy than most first dance songs - plus a lot of cool instrumental sounds) Sample it on i-tunes
