I’d talk to her about it.  If she is okay with not having a dance with a family member (some people don’t like to be in the spotlight anyway) then I wouldn’t worry about it.  If she does want to be included in some kind of family dance, maybe the two of you can talk about what would be the best strategy.

So excited for you- and I’m sorry to hear you are dealing with homophobia in her family. ๐Ÿ™

I agree with the above poster, talk to her about what she wants. I think it would be sweet if your Mom would dance with her after you, when you then dance with your BFF.

I am feeling the exact same way!  My family will be attending but hers (besides possibly her mother and possibly one of her brothers) will not be.  We’re not even sure about her mother and brother at this point.  The rest of her family does not speak to her.  I like the idea of dancing with my dad (who I am very very close with) but it feels a little awkward that I would and she won’t.  Granted, she hates to dance… but it’s the idea of it haha.  I’m still not sure what we’re going to do yet.

I like the idea of your mom dancing with both of you ๐Ÿ™‚ most of those dances seem to go on forever so maybe you could keep it shorter by splitting a song between the two of you. You dancing first then your mom dancing with her to welcome her as another daughter. That way the spotlight won’t be on her as long if she’s nervous about that.
