We are just doing formal daughter/father and son/mother dances.  You will probably dance with your future father in law at some point, but it doesn’t need to be planned.

Yeah, I think that would be a LOT of dances for people to sit through…We’re just doing one dance for both my dad and I and FH and his mom…But I believe traditionally, there are 2, one for you and your dad and one for FH and his mom…

I agree with previous posters, just do the father/daughter and mother/son dance.  The rest of the dancing can just be with everyone on the dance floor.

I think its too many formal dances. Instead of doing one for your new Inlaws, how about starting the dancing part of the reception with them (if you will be doing the father/dauther part at a different time).  This way you can dance with them for half a song and then find someone in the crowd for the second half.  Its a great way to get everyone on the dance floor.

I would agree with others…there is usually just a father/daughter dance and a mother/son dance.  There will come a point in the night when you should dance with your new FIL, but it doesn’t need to be something planned out that everyone else has to sit through.

 I agree with pps.  Having a “special” dance with in-laws, would be too much wait time for your guests.  Just dance with them while all of your guests are dancing.

I also think that’s too many formal dances.  I’ve never seen a wedding where there’s a planned dance for the bride and her FIL.

I like just a few formal, planned dances at a wedding.  They are a nice touch, but too many of them feels weird as a guest.

I agree that you don’t want to have SO many special dances that people have to wait forever to dance at the reception.  If you want to include your ILs, you could just have them join into the other dances.  For example, about half way through your husband’s dance with his mom, you can join in, dancing with his dad and vice versa.  I’ve seen this done, and it was really cute.
