wow! i had to smile at this post. it’s not an easy thing to please people of different generations with different views on what appropriate conduct might be. my advice would be to accept your FMIL’s stance. she knows her church best. you are not forcing your guests to dance at your wedding, and i would hope that they would not be so illmannered to express their disapproval at your reception (or anywhere else!)

i would like to think that even strict members of your church have all attended receptions that don’t comply with their very formal customs and that they still managed to celebrate without compromising their beliefs. remind your fiance of the words of the prophet Jeremiah: “Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy, I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow. [Jeremiah 31:13]
