    Are there any other suggestions for the father/daughter dance?  I am so stuck on what song to choose.  I was thinking "Mi Nina Bonita" but have been told it is a Quincenera song.

    What about "Tu Guardian" by Juanes, or "De Nina a Mujer" by Julio Iglesias.

    i say go with what you like.. as far as lyrics and music.  the song i picked is obviously about a father talking about his daughter before she goes on her first date.. but it works perfectly for a wedding.  i think my sister did nina bonita,the lyrics are beautiful! i like the spanish version of  "i turn to you" by christina aguilera (por siempre tu), i seriously considered that one.

    Mi nina bonita is not a quincianera song. I am having them play that (by Vicente Fernandez) for my father/daughter song. There is a part of the song that says:

    si Un Dia Se Casa Mi Niña
    vestida De Blanco Armiño
    recordare Que Soñaba
    con Que Al Nacer Fuera Un Niño

    por Eso Rezo Y Le Pido
    al Señor De Gran Poder
    que El Hombre Que Se La Lleve
    la Sepa Siempre A Querer

    I think I'm going with Mi Nina Bonita.  I always get teary eyed when I hear it.  I know it's going to make my dad cry when we do our first dance.

    I was sure Vicente Fernandez sang it, but everyone kept telling us he didn't.  That just goes to tell me not to listen to other people, I'm always right...lol.

    All of those selections are great! In my humble opinion, I think it's ultimately your choice of what song you want to dance with your father. I feel that it should be a song about what you think feels right. (hope that makes sense). 

    Let me share my song I feel is right: as for me my father love "my baby you" by Marc Anthony. It was very touching to see my dad "cry" and sing it to me when he first heard it. To me it's more of a memory song and the fact that dad sang it to me. 

    Other than that: remember that its your choice and those other songs previously mentioned are really beautiful.
