- Wedding: August 2011
Hi Everyone! I just stumbled onto this forum and it’s so wonderful and exciting! I have a bit of a dillema and was hoping for some advice and insight. Just a bit of background – I’m 22, and although I just officially got engaged we’ve been talking about our wedding for years now. My FI is an amazingly sweet and sensitive guy – but very very private.
My problem is: he really doesn’t want dancing at our wedding, while I really really do. The idea of the first dance makes him litreally feel sick, as he doesn’t like being the center of attention. Additionally, he says his whole family is quite stoic and would feel out of place if they had to dance. However, our first dance is something I’ve been dreaming of since I was little, and the thought of not having our first dance, AND a dance with my dad is devestating.
Have any of you been in a similar situation? And on a practical level, if we DID decide to not have dancing, is it even possible to plan a nice wedding without dancing? I feel like that would be very stiff and quite boring. Also, have you ever seen a ‘seperate’ dance room, such that his family wouldn’t feel like they have to dance? I’d really love all of your opinions!
