- Wedding: October 2013
I’m really not one for the spotlight or a lot of the usual wedding reception traditions. But FI and I will definitely do a first dance together, and I also find myself wanting to do a father-daughter dance. My dad and I have always been close, and I just think it would be a nice moment.
My dad’s not very enthusiastic about it because he hates dancing, lol, but he’s willing to go along. FI does not want to do a separate mother-son dance — he and his mother have a good relationship, but he’s just very much not into the idea. (And his mother is not the type to have her feelings hurt over it.)
I was thinking of having an abbreviated father daughter dance — maybe only for the first 60 seconds or so of the song, and then inviting guests to come join us for the rest of the song, and opening dancing that way.
What do you Bees think of that idea? That way I can let my dad off the hook with regard to the public dancing, lol, and maybe even FI and his mom can dance without being formally in the spotlight, which is the part that makes FI uncomfortable.
Thoughts? Has anyone opened the dancing this way? Any other suggestions?
